The Music: Local & Live in October
Pictured above is our Spotlight Band – Heydreamer!
By KRIS YOUMANS, Special to The Paper
“Music gives a soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination & life to everything.”… Plato
Melody Kiser & the musicians that make up HeyDreamer are high-energy players, passionate about the journey they’ve begun. Their first album was released in February 2020, and they’re currently working on their second with Will Turpin (from Collective Soul) & Steve Rawls. The project Dances in Wonderland is set to release in January 2022, and they’ve just finished a video which should be out soon.
