The Lost Boys Project

Dean's first single: Lost Boys, combines soulful pop with mesmerizing vocal harmonics. Drawing inspiration from three distinct cultural backgrounds (France, Philippines, and South Korea), Lost Boys seeks to highlight the universal longing for youth to possess meaningful relationships with their fathers. The “Lost Boys Project" connected Matthew Dean Marsh, a terrific New York musician with three talented directors from France, South Korea and the Philippines.

Most of my young adult male friends were falling behind. The ones who seemed to suffer more were ones without an active relationship with their father. One evening, in a room of eight twenty-somethings hard pressed to find work, I asked about their fathers; they all shared one of three stories: Dad left, Dad’s a drug addict, or Dad died.
— Matthew Marsh

Lost Boys follows the lives of three young men facing heartbreaking circumstances. The stories in three different countries highlight specific social issues, but also draw attention to a universal need for young people to have an intimate relationship with their fathers. Nearly one hundred creative people volunteered their time and effort because they believed that what they were doing would contribute to the cause of inspiring youth to overcome their hardships with transcultural art.
