DEAN THE DREAM UNRAVELS FUTURE PLANS FOLLOWING HITCHIN’ IT TO HEAVEN
Hitchin’ It To Heaven artist Brendan Alpiner, aka Dean the Dream, talks about his upcoming projects and how he intends to experiment with new sound and genres, “I’m currently writing new music that’s very pop inspired, almost Nine Inch Nails-meets-Gorillaz. And that’s probably the most attractive thing about being a musician right there; being able to play around in genres and see where the music takes me.”
It seems that Dean the Dream is ready to move into uncharted waters and push his boundaries. The multi-talented singer-songwriter says, “I would love to work with other artists namely Orville Peck, Sky Ferriera, and other musicians of the sort. The ones who blur genre lines yet retain a hypnotic swing. I’d also love to find a rapper to do something with, too, just to try it out..”
Dean the Dream admits, “I’d love to collaborate with poets like Ocean Vuong, Tracy K. Smith or Sam Sax because they’re true masters at poetry.” He reveals that he could consider being part of a band, although he’s a “primarily a solo act right now.” Inspired by Alice in Chains, the Detroit power admires them for their good harmonies, “Those guys knew how to sing about some pretty heavy stuff in such a beautiful fashion.”
Following Hitchin’ It To Heaven that includes 7 tracks, among which are “Changes,” “Dying Staying Alive,” “Kiss Me Kill Me,” and the lead single “Goodbye, Danny,” Dean the Dream, will continue to tell more stories that speak to him and people like him.
