The former Acappella group member has a distinguished solo career, with multiple albums containing tunes which reached national charts.
Dean's latest effort (once again done in collaboration with his wife Janae) continues his track record of well-crafted, inspirational music featuring his soothing and soulful voice.
For example, the medium tempo "It's a Miracle" takes a pop setting with its smoothly sung tale of the miraculous power of God. The album's title song similarly benefits from the singer's silky vocals wrapped around the song's central message.
Another highlight is "Before the Throne," a slow ballad which is closest to Dean's former accapella sound with lush yet pointed background vocals.
There's also "In Your Presence," led with acoustic guitar underscoring its prayerful tones of desiring to follow and trust in God.
There is some nice variety in the musical styles.
"I Am Satisfied" is a tune with a Jamaican "accent" as it presents its affirmations of contentment in Christ.
Dean also offers a slow and reverent version of "Give Me Jesus," a song covered by numerous Christian artists. The album closes with the bouncy "One Day," which looks forward to Christ's return.
"Redeemed" is a welcome addition to Dean's catalog which includes fine previous albums such as "Immeasurable," Through the Rain" and his first solo effort, "As Long As I Live."
The new album is available through various digital online outlets as well as the artist's website.
