Started in 2000, based out of Buffalo, New York, and featuring Ann Janish-Schieder, Leah Pinnavaia, Daniel Haskin, and Pat O'Connell, The Dreaming blend myriads of styles, from alternative rock, to folk, to ethereal, weaving their own style of musical soundscape. We are happy to have two lead vocalists with such emotion and power.
Having produced two previous CDs, their third outing, Shadow Days, is a richly textured disk of powerful electronics and sensual acoustics. In this latest installment in their career The Dreaming 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.,"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 Dreaming is a band that writes songs that run the gambit of emotion. Each song is a story. The strength behind the band is it's penchant for creating great catchy songs with dynamic range and literate, lyrical, beauty.
As live performers The Dreaming have played in a wide array of settings. From this year'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 Dreaming have performed in venues large, and small, and everything in between.
The Dreaming are now reaching out to their fan-base through their website at www.dreamsuite.com . Visitors can sample tracks, catch up-to-date news, concert information, communicate with the band, download special recordings, and order CDs.
We are currently in production of our fourth CD, self titled - "The Dreaming". "The Dreaming" will be released sometime in 2006.
