Based out of Buffalo, New York, and featuring Leah Pinnavaia, Daniel Haskin, John Caruso, and Pat O’Connell, Dream Collective blends myriads of styles, from alternative rock, to progressive folk, to ethereal, weaving their own style of musical soundscape.
Having produced three previous CDs, their third outing, Machines of Love and War, is a richly textured disk of powerful electronics and sensual acoustics. In this latest installment in their career The Dream Collective bring a new spin to their own brand of delicate alternative music. According to radio personality Sarah Sullivan of WHOB and WBOS in Boston, Mass., about their third outing ‘Shadow Days’ “The guitars, at the beginning of ‘Perfect Skin’, make you wish they would go on and on. I was happy to discover, however, the vocals are just as hypnotic. Phew . . . . The band follows this with a kick in the ass of ‘Piglet and the Black Fox’ which takes you on a journey, sometimes frightening, keeping you on the edge of your seat throughout the track.”
The Dream Collective is a band that writes songs that run the gambit of emotion. Each song is a story, with the strength behind the band it’s penchant for creating great catchy songs with dynamic range and literate, lyrical, beauty.
As live performers The Dream Collective have played in a wide array of settings. From Buffalo’s Music is Art Festival, to three times opening for British folk-rock legends, The Strawbs, and then on to a late night national television appearance on WKBW’s syndicated TV show ‘Off Beat Cinema’, the Dream Collective have performed in venues large, and small, and everything in between.
The Dream Collective’s CD catalogue is currently internationally distributed through Witchwood Records in the UK.
