Richie Dean was born and raised in the heart of the Black Country, West Midlands.
Growing up, he enjoyed singing for his friends and family but never believed he was destined to make a career out of something he enjoyed so much.
When he was younger, his family had a major influence on his musical career - his Grandfather was a crooner singer and his Uncle was in a rock tribute band to 'Free'.
Being surrounded by such great musical talent helped Richie's passion for music grow. In his early twenties, he decided to make a career shift from Logistics to Music and this is where he has stayed ever since.
One of his earliest success stories within the Music industry was winning 'Male Artist of the Year' in 2015 for both Birmingham Entertainment Secretaries Council and Worcester & District Entertainment Secretaries Council.
In more recent years, Richie has been part of larger events and even opened the Main Stage of Walsall Pride in 2019, the same year he launched his tribute show to Sir Tom Jones, 'The Complete Tom Jones'.
