Lisa: How did you come up with your artist name? What is the significance of this name?
Dreamy Dreamer: I was looking for a stage name that suits me and tried with words back and forth which combination would fit. It took me a few days to get it. Little by little, Dreamy Dreamer came into being.
The stage name reflects me 100%. I’ve always been very dreamy in kindergarten and school and I still am today.
Lisa:I would love to know what studio you work in looks like? What is it like writing, recording and producing all of your music there?
Dreamy Dreamer: I don’t have a studio at all, and financially I can’t afford a studio. My music is created in my apartment on the laptop with the music program Magix Music Maker, this is my “studio” so to speak.
I am very interested in music, including making music myself, and wanted to use the music program to find out whether I am musical. It has made my passion for music even bigger. There is still so much to learn and discover.
Lisa: Your sound would be classified as synth-pop/singer-songwriter, but if you had to describe it without using genre names, how would you describe it?
Dreamy Dreamer: I would describe my sound as dreamy, imaginative, joyful, playful and also melancholic. There are sounds from: Synthwave, 80s, New Retro Wave, Dreamwave, Chillwave, Vaporwave, Dark Synth, Eurodance, 90s, Japan-Pop, Anime and many more.
Lisa: Going off of that, who are some of your musical influences?
Dreamy Dreamer: My musical influence is singer SANDRA (Sandra Lauer Cretu, a German pop singer, known from the 80s). I’ve been a mega SANDRA fan since 1993, when I was just 9 years old. SANDRA is my muse and inspiration. I also take films and series as an incentive and create my own interpretation.
Lisa: Let’s talk about your single, “Hope” Where did the inspiration for this track come from?
Dreamy Dreamer: I always go for the feeling, the emotion, how I feel in this moment and should work on it until the sound / music is how I want it to be. As inspiration I take my mood and mix it with my imagination.
Lisa: You also do a lot of covers, with your own unique sound. Do you feel like your adding something unique when covering a song?
Dreamy Dreamer: In my music, even in the cover versions, my dreamy side is somehow always there, always comes through. I am always on my mind. I think that’s what’s unique about my music, my dreamy personality.
Lisa: Do you have plans to release more songs and/or a full collection of new music?
Dreamy Dreamer: Yes, step by step I plan to publish more singles. On September 7th 2020 my third Sounds of Neptune (Cover) will be released as a single, on Spotify, Amazon etc.
Lisa: How do you think you have grown as a musician since you first started making music?
Dreamy Dreamer: Yes, I think I’ve grown as a musician. I’ve been making music since May 10th, 2018. It doesn’t always succeed immediately, sometimes you need several attempts to succeed. And in the end I’m always happy that it’s finished and I hope the audience likes it.
Lisa: Are you planning any collaborations in the future? Who would you absolutely love to work with in the future?
Dreamy Dreamer: There was once a request from Jens Gad (he also produced SANDRA, among other things). I’m still very excited when he wrote to me on September 24th, 2019. I would very much like to work with Jens Gad, but unfortunately that is too expensive for me.
I would like to work with singer SANDRA and also with Michael Cretu or Peter Ries.
Lisa: At the end of the day, what do you hope people take away from your music?
Dreamy Dreamer: In the end, I hope the audience likes it. I am always very happy about every single listener I was able to reach.
Lisa: What’s next for you?
