Dean Gray is a multi-instrumentalist of the fretted string variety. He is a musical chameleon, and is constantly creating and searching for new sounds and textures. His interests include jazz guitar, pedal steel, celtic mandolin, classical ukulele and all points in-between.
Dean has been a member of Geoff Powers’ Great Gatsby Orchestra, has collaborated with composer/choir legend Sally Whitwell, and was a member of the Sydney Mandolin Orchestra.He currently performs regularly in a number of different groups, including hard folk outfit Whiskey Dram, Mike Martin and the Kameruka Bush Orchestra, as well as with his wife, cellist Anna Martin-Scrase, in their romantic jazz duo Double Standard.
Dean and Anna moved from Sydney to the far south coast in 2019, to open their own music school in Wolumla.
Rarely without an instrument in his hands, Dean can usually be found teaching, practicing or rounding his students up for weekly Sunday morning busking sessions outside his favourite cafe in Pambula.
