Hello, I am Dewey Paul Moffitt, a passionate multi-media artist and entertainment industry professional.
When not actively working on a concert production, you can find me living the digital nomad life in Mexico where I do a lot of video editing, writing and creating music.

In my personal time, I enjoy kayaking, fitness, swimming, photography, playing music of course, engaging in a taoistic lifestyle through the four noble truths of Buddhism, and living the Four Agreements of Toltec wisdom.

In addition to being a published author, international touring musician, and videographer, I also work behind the scenes producing music festivals and concerts, specializing in production management and audio engineering.
In 2014, I released my first book, a memoir titled ‘Bohemian Ghosts’. The book recounts my many adventures in the psychedelic music scene, mostly revolving around the Grateful Dead subculture.

From my circus like lifestyle traveling the Deadhead parking lot scenes to eventually working backstage, my memoir examines how this wild counter-culture world impacted my early adult years and gave way for me to discover a career in the concert industry.

A portion of the book discusses my experiences living in a bizarre artist commune in Oakland, California that has become the subject of one of two documentary film projects I am directing, ‘Surviving The Paradigm’ and "Koh Phangan Man'.

Summers before the pandemic found me touring and performing in Europe with The International Bob Dylan Tribute Festival, an all-star event I founded and launched in Denver, Colorado back in 2006.
Although the event began in 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 Fulks, Madeleine Peyroux, Melvin Seals, and Jerry Joseph to name a few.

Musically, I have written more than three hundred original songs and released ten music albums split between my bands ‘Dewey Paul Band’ and ‘Dewey Decibel System’. In addition to a deep catalog of original compositions, I have been known to release a few cover songs (Nick Lowe, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, and Van Morrison among them). Most notably was a release I did in 2011 titled: "Dewey Paul Presents CALE: A Tribute to J.J. Cale". The song collection features me performing all the instruments myself 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 music fans through the crowdsourcing website Pledge Music (London, UK).

Since 2005, I have annually performed 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.

Originally I am from a small farming town in Ohio, but grew up mostly in Boca Raton, Florida. I’ve spent several years on the road following around that Grateful Dead band and eventually I settled for a little while in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’ve also spent some significant time living in Gainesville, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Lawrence, Kansas before a long residence in Denver and Colorado’s Rocky Mountain region.

So what have I been up to since the pandemic hit?–It’s a complicated answer that involves long and winding dramatic tale of revisiting my nomadic lifestyle that stretches from Thailand to Mexico. You can read more about this in a new novel that I have coming out soon. A completely true story that I’ve had to fictionalize for my own sanity, protection and peace of mind.
