Since forming in 2008, Orlando, Florida’s Dreamer has been known to catch the attention of everyone who has the pleasure of listening to them, no matter their age or their preference of genre. This rapidly continued after the release of their first full-length album, “To Be Heard Above the Noise” in 2009, which was able to turn the heads of many of their now long-term, dedicated fans. “To Be Heard…” was immediately compared to works released by such national acts as Saosin and Underoath, and was followed with non-stop performances at Orlando’s most popular venues. During this time, Dreamer shared the stage with many long-term friends and well-known acts, such as: Broadway, Decoder, Oceana, and Aglacia.
Although Dreamer is known to grasp the heavier side of rock, they decided to experiment with the lighter side of things by featuring an acoustic version of their ever-popular “Sever the Ties” on Paradyne Record’s compilation CD, entitled, “Acoustic Transitions, Vol. 1.” This 2009 release, and the creation of an accompanying music video on YouTube for “Sever the Ties,” created a nationwide and worldwide buzz. Dreamer was not only able to expand their fan base from nearby cities to multiple different countries; it also contributed to their success at gaining a spot at St.Petersburg’s 2011 Warped Tour.
Dreamer continued to release a four-song EP in May 2012, which encompasses three brand new songs, along with a much-anticipated follow-up acoustic track of “The Sun.” Teaming up with Matt Goldman [Underoath, Anberlin, The Chariot, As Cities Burn] allowed Dreamer to achieve the full-bodied, heart-felt sound they strive to live and perform by. Not only did this EP provide an in-depth view of what they had been working on for the previous two years, it also was released with an intention to expand their horizon and impress anyone and everyone who listens to them. For Dreamer, there are no limits when it comes to reaching out to their ever-appreciated fans.
