Austin orchestral folk ensemble, American Dreamer, is comprised of two former rockers (guitar and drums) and three classical musicians (violin, cello, bass) and has over 30 years of collective music school experience. The members can be found performing in the many ensembles and venues all over Austin from Symphonic Hall to coffee bars.
In performance, they selflessly share the spotlight as much as they commingle in it. American Dreamer’s songs flow easily with intricate, lush harmonies and expressive instrumentation reminiscent of Sufjan Stevens. With one foot in classical music and the other comfortably in folk, the common thread that runs through every song, and each member of the group, is the natural urge to share sounds, emotions, and stories through music.
