Singer/songwriter Dean Backholm was born and raised in Aberdeen, Washington, the hometown of Kurt Cobain andPatrick Simmons (of the Doobie Brothers.)

During college at Washington State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture, he and his younger brother Doug performed as a duo in coffee shops and lounges under the name "Back to Back". He later went on to front the band "Satin Avenue" which included Doug on piano and Ron Erak on bass.

In 2003 Backholm released his first CD of all original tunes, A Question For You. The CD, produced by Ron Erak, and featuring an "A" list of studio musicians from Seattle and Los Angeles, has received rave pre release reviews. From the sensitive "Unborn Lullaby," to the title track A Question For You, to the jammin' "Mykal," Backholm proves himself equally adept at writing in all genres and sings with an understated vocal style, reminiscent of two of his vocal role models, Michael Franks and John Mayer.
