' DreamSong ' is the 1st solo album CD from veteran American songwriter/musician Billy D of Youngstown, Ohio The best way to describe ' DreamSong ' is that it is different and fun. ' DreamSong ' is a Pop-Rock symphonic journey into the world of artful fantasy. It is a totally new and refreshing excursion into the conceptual album format, similar in form to The Beatles' ' Sgt. Pepper ' and Brian Wilson's ' Smile ' albums. But the comparison stops there, as the music and styles often venture into unexpected twists and tonal surprises. Presented as 4 seperate movements, this is a rich, musical, metaphoric romp into soundscapes seldom visted before, and will no doubt inspire the listener to return again and again. Offered here, also as single songs, the CD version remains the best way to hear the work as intended, free flowing and continous music. Billy D has enjoyed a career as a lead guitarist experienced in many varied styles, performing in smaller groups as well as on the big concert stages. He also has done a series of ' behind the scenes ' projects as a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and engineer in professional recording studios. ' DreamSong ' is a 2 year labor of love, where he has painstakingly built each recording using conventional instruments and special guitar synths to produce this epic adventure. You are invited to experience this exciting stereo homage to some of the greatest music of the last century. Inspired by the music and lyrics of Van Dyke Parks, The Beatles, George Gershwin, Harry Nilsson, Brian Wilson, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Spike Jones, Roy Orbison, Donald Fagen, Frank Sinatra, Charles Ives, Stevie Wonder, Alan Parsons, Nelson Riddle, Frank Zappa, Randy Newman and many others. From influences like these, comes a unique and original style, conveying a vast range of moods, from the humorous to the most deep and thoughtful.
