What People Are Saying

KBEK 95.5 FM and SUPER 70’s on Saturday Night with HollyWood have been playing Sawyer’s Dream’s music for over a year now and they have taken the stage, performing live in our Wiese Auditorium twice – most recently to a sold out crowd! We are huge fans. Why? Sawyer’s Dream has a sound reminiscent of the 70’s, but with a fresh new twist that is undeniably “their” sound. Strong vocals and beautiful harmonies accompanied by incredibly talented musicians and brilliant song-writing make for an enjoyable and entertaining evening of music! Their friendship and admiration for each other off-stage transfers on-stage and it is palpable – they know how to bring out the best in each other. Clean show, catchy tunes, truly amazing guitar riffs and a beat that dares your body to try and sit still. Highly recommend!”

Love this band! The perfect mix of 70’s nostalgia mixed with state-of-the-art production and contemporary lyrical sensibility. Solid musicianship all the way around and lavish, multi-layered vocals drive home memorable melodies that will stick with you even after the first listen. Very unique and highly recommended!”

Open Flower

Monique Blakely’s vocals impress from the first note. This woman can belt with the best of them. When combined with the gorgeous melody that is Open Flower, this song finds a unique place of its own somewhere between Kelsea Ballerini and the Mamas and the Papas.”

Love Is On The Way

One helluva happy, feel good song with a lush vocal melody reminiscent of a young Christie McVie with more soul. I love the syncopated guitar riff at the end of each chorus. It brings me back to an era when musicians were highly skilled, technical players, yet still were able to retain the human component that is so desperately missing from most contemporary music.”

Four Leaf Clover

If the Doobie Brothers, Abba, and Kansas had a baby it might sound like Four Leaf Clover. Awesome!”

Those Were The Best Times

This song recalls days gone by yet avoids sounding sad or bittersweet. It’s a celebration of the best of times… an ode to all of your favorite bands from the 70’s without being derivative.”
