Dean Wareham, is counted as one of the original voices of American indie rock, his band
Galaxie 500 emerging from Boston in 1988 and making three celebrated albums for Rough Trade (recently reissued on Domino Records). "Galaxie 500 were the ultimate cult group," wrote Bookforum,"a band who set the stage for the indie scene of the 21st Century." His next band Luna recorded seven albums for Elektra and Beggar's Banquet (including Penthouse, on Rolling Stone's list of best albums of the 90s), followed by three albums as Dean & Britta (with Britta Phillips). In 2013 he released a 6-song EP,
Emancipated Hearts. His songs have been covered by Beck, Ryan Adams, and Joanna Gruesome.

Wareham is also a writer, he contributes to Salon and the Talkhouse, and his memoir
Black Postcards is now a Penguin paperback. He recently appeared acting in the Noah Baumbach film Frances Ha. 

Born in New Zealand, and having spent most of his life in New York City, he currently lives in Los Angeles.
