Dewey is the son of an American father who was with the US Air Force based at RAF South Ruislip, and his wife who was English. From the inception of The Beatles, Dewey became infatuated with their sound and also listened to the Beach Boys. As he got older, his interest and ambitions increased, and while in London Central High School, he met and befriended Gerry Beckley and Dan Peek – they started the band America in 1969, at their second attempt. Peek left the group in 1977 to start a career on his own, and since then Dewey and Beckley remained the two original members. Their first self-title album came out in 1971, and topped the US Billboard chart, and achieved platinum status in both Canada and the US. They continued successfully throughout the ‘70s, releasing the albums “Homecoming” (1972) – which also achieved platinum status in USA, increasing Dewey’s net worth to a large degree – then “Holiday” (1974), “Hearts” (1975), and “Hideaway” (1976). After the end of the ‘70s, the band’s popularity began to fade, and although they released a number of new albums, none of them reached the popularity of their releases from the ‘70s. However, they had some success with compilation albums, such as “The Definitive America” (2001), which achieved platinum status in Australia. Their most recent release is the album “Lost & Found” (2015), which comprises songs recorded but unreleased between 2002 and 2010.
