Catholic Contemporary Music (non-liturgical) - Fr. Maximilian Mary Dean

MP3 Music Playlist: 
Recently the Holy Spirit has led me to record Catholic songs with a vintage vibe (viz. before everything became hyper-electronic and hyper-produced, meaning real musicians on real instruments). If you enjoy vintage music but want a Christian message you might enjoy my music. Grand central station for my music is (you'll find links there to YouTube, Spotify, etc.).

God bless you and Mother Mary keep you...


Vintage is good!

Fr. Maximilian, these songs sound very good. Sung with passion and artistry. Did you use some classic analog equipment to record?

SiteGround recently switched this website to a different web hosting space – from Apache to NGINX. It has caused some problems with serving up certain files with spaces and caps. I noticed that A Battle Cry Goes Out.mp3 wasn't playing in the MP3 player so I re-uploaded it as A-Battle-Cry-Goes-Out.mp3. I hope to have a fix soon. I also just updated the text editor module and for some reason it is causing a YouTube URL to not play inline. So I replaced your YouTube URLs with YouTube embed code.

God reward you...

You really went the extra mile for my little post! May God reward you...

I'm using all digital recording equipment (much of the software is able to replicate that classic sound - compressors, amp simulators, etc.), but the vintage vibe comes primarily from the fact that I'm recording actual instruments (real drums, guitars, etc. and featuring others on real instruments like saxophone, harmonica, flute, etc.) and another reason is that I stopped listening to rock music (Christian or secular) when I entered seminary in the late 80s - so my playing, singing and song writing all flow from my influences in the late 70s and early 80s and I model my mixes off those vibes (i.e. Supertramp, Steely Dan, the Eagles, the Little River Band, Hewey Lewis and the News, etc.). 

I have a new CD coming out here in few days. I hope to return and post some links to that album and the video for the title track which premieres on Thursday night, 9pm ET:
