Dream On is an indie rock band from the UK. None of them are strangers to touring or music, though they’re a pretty new projects.
Dream On is now available on Spotify, a big step for the band. Their sound has always been polished and classic enough for Spotify. They take you back to nineties indie and their modern equivalent would be Beach Fossils.
Andy, George and Howard have all toured as musicians in various projects before Dream On. Andy worked in folk clubs for years before forming the band and honed his songs there.
