Chances are your already familiar with the sound of Dean Bailin’s world famous pop/funk guitar riffs and leads on the #1 song “Escape (the Pina Colada Song)”. Following the success of the Rupert Holmes gold album “Partners In Crime” (which featured Dean’s distinctive guitar work throughout and also yielded the smash hits “Him” and “Answering Machine”), Dean has been producing, writing and playing on recordings with many of NYC’s most talented musical artists in his Manhattan music studio 4 Cats Recordings.
