ABOUT THE DIRECTOR
Filmmaker Dewey Paul Moffitt attains success with the creative projects and passionate endeavors he sets in motion. He is a published author, international touring singer-songwriter, recording artist, talent buyer and concert promoter.
In 2014, Moffitt released a memoir titled Bohemian Ghosts: A Memoir. The book recounts the authors many adventures in the psychedelic Grateful Dead and jam band scene. From his Deadhead parking lot days to working backstage, the chronicle examines how that wild counter-culture world impacted his early adult years and allowed him to discover his passion for the concert industry. A portion of the book discusses the authors experiences living in a bizarre artist commune in Oakland, California that has become the subject of his current 2019 documentary film project, Surviving The Paradigm.
Recent summers have found Moffitt touring and performing in Europe with The International Bob Dylan Tribute Festival, an all-star event he founded and launched in 2006 and one which he continues to organize and produce annually. Although the event began in Denver, Colorado, the touring version of the show has successfully been hosted in major U.S. markets as well as in Ireland, Scotland, and England and has featured many renowned performers such as Robbie Folks, Madeleine Peyroux, Melvin Seals, and Jerry Joseph to name a few.
Moffitt has released ten Americana style albums split between his bands Dewey Paul Band and Dewey Decibel System, of which most contain nearly all original compositions. In addition to his deep catalog of original songs, Moffitt has been known to release a few cover songs (Nick Lowe, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, and Van Morrison among them). Most notably was 2011's "Dewey Paul Presents CALE: A Tribute to J.J. Cale". The CD features Moffitt performing all the instruments himself on a 16-song solo tribute album. It is the world's first and only of its kind to legendary Tulsa blues musician J.J. Cale (After Midnight, They Call Me the Breeze, Cocaine, etcetera). The project was also completely funded by fans through the crowdsourcing website Pledge Music (London, UK).
Since 2005, Moffitt annually performs in an all-star Colorado reenactment of The Band's famous Last Waltz concert which is held during Thanksgiving week at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium and at The Boulder Theater. The concert features the finest regional performers Colorado has to offer and also serves as a benefit for the Denver Rescue Mission, providing assistance for homeless persons in the region.
Moffitt was born in the small working man's town of Coshocton, Ohio where he took up piano and guitar at the age of nine. At the age of eleven, the family relocated to the South Florida town of Boca Raton, where his education and formative teen years ensued. When not traveling with one of his creative projects he resides in Colorado's Rocky Mountains and is a talent buyer for the Goat Soup & Whiskey Tavern.
