Everything that's worthwhile in life starts with an idea, but in order for that dream to be fully realized it has to be followed up with hard work, creativity and hope. Those traits lie at the core of DREAMERS, a project that was born out of frontman Nick Wold's seemingly impossible dream of rock stardom. “I originally went to New York University when I was 18 to study jazz but while I was on that path, I realized that I wanted to communicate to people in a way that was more accessible and aligned with my personality,” he explains.
Luck would have it that as soon as the songs started coming together, Wold met bassist/keyboardist/vocalist Nelson and they decide to join forces. “Nelson was in the perfect point in his life when we met in the sense that he had been in tons of bands and had lots of experience but he wasn't sure if he was going to do music anymore,” Wold explains. “It kind of smacked him at the right time.” From there, true to their moniker, things started happening at breakneck speed for the band. They released their self-titled debut EP later that year and DREAMERS' first single “Wolves (You've Got Me)” was soon in rotation on SiriusXM's Alt Nation, a nearly unprecedented milestone for a new act. The group got lucky once again when they linked up with drummer/vocalist Jacob Wick, who replaced the band's original drummer after the band relocated to Los Angeles in 2015, and began touring full-time. The following year Fairfax Recordings released DREAMERS' debut full-length This Album Does Not Exist, which featured breakthrough songs like “Sweet Disaster,” and the band followed that up with a pair of EPs, LAUNCH and FLY, in 2018.
They seek to counter the crassness of pop, the snobbery of jazz, and the pretention of indie that zaps the fun out of music with meaning. Yet, they want to draw you in, indiscriminate of taste, style, or ideology. They will do so as they stop in Orlando for their This Album Does Not Exist tour.
