The Pipe Dreams / Bio

A high-energy blend of classic and modern rock grooves from two sets of brothers, driven by stellar songwriting and rich harmonies, glued together by authoritative bass lines, incendiary guitar, keyboard hooks that stay in your gut, and a wildman drummer. Delivering a fusion of musique that will quench the thirst of your ear drums but will also leave them thirsty for more- at the exact same time.

Destiny brought together four brothers with one mission: supply Chicago with the quality rock and roll she deserves. Derek Simon and Cody Shear attended the same high school, and their passion for writing and playing music drew them together. Soon, Jonah Shear, Cody's younger brother, joined the fold on keyboards and synthesizers, adding a third unique voice to the band's distinct vocal blend. Then, Zach Simon, Derek's older brother, stepped in behind the drums. The Pipe Dreams are inspired by greats such as The Beatles and The Band, incorporating several lead vocal lines and harmonies into their songs, which have elements of funk and reggae but can only be called rock and roll.
