Kelley Stoltz “To Dreamers”


To Dreamers or not To Dreamers that is the question. Actually that is not really a question, especially when we are talking about a new record from a now veritable godfather to the burgeoning San Francisco under/over-ground, Kelley Stoltz.

As on prior albums, Kelley plays most of the instruments heard on To Dreamers himself, though two of the songs here were recorded by Kelley and his band live in the studio. One of these is a cover version of the ‘60s nugget Baby I Got News for You, by Big Boy Pete Miller, who performs on the recording, dusting off the very valve amps and guitar used on the 1965 original, to add vocals and fuzz.

While Kelley Stoltz’s nigh-religious reverence for all things Beatles, Beach Boys and Kinks has been at the fore on recent albums Below the Branches and Circular Sounds, his new album, To Dreamers, blends a bit more post-punk abandon into its layered everyman pop. Tasteful horn adornments blow against tom-tom beats and 12-string guitars meet reverbed mellotrons, under Stoltz’s warm vocals.

To Dreamers will hit stores on October 12th. For more info on Kelley Stoltz visit his artist page
