Dean Torrey was born in Connecticut in 1992, and took up the bass at age 8. During his college years he was a student of bassists Doug Weiss, Scott Colley, Lynn Seaton, Joe Sanders, and Bach specialist Jeff Bradetich, as well as pianist Hal Galper (who would go on to hire Torrey for his own quartet).

Since moving to New York in 2014 Torrey has quickly distinguished himself as one of the leading voices on bass of his generation, having been tapped for sideman work by veteran creatives such as NEA Jazz Master Muhal Richard Abrams, AACM percussionist/composer Thurman Barker, Rodney Green, Francisco Mela, and Dizzy Gillespie alum Ed Cherry; as well as contemporaries closer to his own age like Tivon Pennicott, Micah Thomas, Immanuel Wilkins, Joel Ross, Adam O’Farril, Jure Pukl, and the widely acclaimed Onyx Collective, among others.
