Americana Highways is pleased to premiere this lyric video of Jonah Tolchin’s “Every Dream Can Become a Nightmare.” “Every Dream Can Become a Nightmare” is Jonah Tolchin, with Fred Tackett on guitar, Larry Goldings on organ, James Gadson on drums and Alan Hampton on bass. The song was engineered by GRAMMY-winner Sheldon Gomberg (Ben Harper/Warren Zevon).
The lyric video was directed by Josh Holt with artwork by Kelsi Kosinski. With its slow funky beat and ethereal organ, then Tolchin’s uncanny vocals kicking in, “Every Dream Can Become a Nightmare” will become an instant earworm. Tolchin’s new blues-inspired album promises to be one of this year’s best.
Knowing that “every dream can become a nightmare,” can inspire us to do our best. To put the work in that a healthy relationship requires. Even just with oneself. Shit happens, life can get dark. We all know this. But do we really face it? Rather than ignore the suffering, this song takes the position of “diving into the sea of glass” and confronts the reality of darkness and light head on. For me, songs that do this are often times the most therapeutic. That’s why my first love is the Blues. Everything I do musically sprouts from that simple philosophy of transforming depressive energy into creative energy. That’s the Blues. That’s what I strive for. ~Jonah Tolchin
Tolchin’s new album will be announced later this year. https://lnk.to/everydream
