Michael W. Dean


Consummate musician, poet, lyricist, story-teller, movie producer, radio show host and so much more… Does all the music for BipTunia and composed lyrics on “Ode to and Ode” that you should really check out.

He’s also a host (with Phil Wormuth) on the Freedom Feens radio show… and he invented the BipCot NoGov license, used on all JipProd releases and many other projects by many people.

Dean and head JIPper Phil Wormuth went to college together in the rust belt of America in the early 80s.

These two guys were best friends in college, played in a bar band called “The Armless Children.”

They lost track of each other, didn’t speak for 30 years, then got back in touch this year and immediately made this music.”

“Brace Yourself for a Blast” is kind of a concept album about the end of the world. But it’s not depressing. There is hope.
