Dreamer Boy × All Our Dreams Came True Tour

Nashville’s genre-blurring singer/songwriter Dreamer Boy has announced his first ever headline tour. The All Our Dreams Came True tour will kick off on September 22 in Atlanta, GA, and run through October 4 in Los Angeles, CA. Dreamer Boy (Zach Taylor) will have support along the tour route from GRANDMA, Jack Larsen, May Rio, carwash and others.

Back in April, Dreamer Boy released his critically acclaimed album All The Ways We Are Together via slowplay and Harvest Records. The release on Earth Day was tied into various activations core to who Zach Taylor is as an artist and as a human. Streams from the album helped to plant 1,500 trees in partnership with One Tree Planted. This fall, fans will have the chance to hear the hazy, sentimental tracks off of this record live, as they were intended to be enjoyed. Purchase tickets HERE.

For Zach Taylor optimism is a calling. With a smile that hardly ever leaves his face, the 24-year-old songwriter/singer explains that the misty, shape-shifting pop music he’s made for the last few years as Dreamer Boy has been a way of accomplishing a grander aim. “I want to spread love and light and joy,” he says, matter-of-factly. And spread that he’s done, whether on the road with friends Clairo, Omar Apollo, and Still Woozy, or on the themes of his new release, All the Ways We Are Together. Dreamer Boy’s purpose has become clearer over time, and, in the spirit of unity and harmony, the Nashville-based singer and songwriter chose Earth Day as his album’s release date.

After building anticipation for its arrival, Gen Z singer-songwriter Claire Rosinkranz releases her anxiously awaited sophomore EP, 6 Of A Billion, today via slowplay/Republic Records.

She heralded the project with her most recent single “Boy In A Billion.” In a week, it has already amassed over 1 million total streams.

The EP could double as the ultimate Gen Z teen flick with the star as its narrator. The opener “Hotel” glides on a bouncy beat wrapped in sunny guitar as she details the art of sneaking out (without getting caught) and promises, “One day I’ll write a story that’ll sit on a shelf about partying with my friends at some random hotel.” On the opening track, Claire says, “I wrote this song about the feeling of sneaking out, partying with friends, driving fast and eating pasta.”

Her voice seesaws over a sparse riff on “Pretty Little Things” as she laments with a soft croon, “All these pretty little things in life we have to learn to ignore. Everything culminates on the jazz-y feels of “LAX.” Her powerful delivery echoes in tandem with a bold horn section on one last crescendo.

Dreamer Boy – Crybaby

Dreamer Boy is back with more sweet nostalgia on his new single “Crybaby,” out today via slowplay/Caroline: LISTEN HERE. The track arrives alongside a trippy, retro-styled video inspired by David Bowie, George Harrison, and the tales of Dreamer Boy’s youth. It’s a glittery, technicolor fantasy that surrenders to the childlike freedom of hopping on a bike, jumping on a trampoline, and spinning in circles.

The single debuted this morning as an Apple Music 1 World First Premiere with Zane Lowe. “I just don’t see a future where many, many of us don’t absolutely fall in love with Dreamer Boy,” Zane Lowe said about the song. “I just think the music is so flawless.”

The visuals match the track’s misty psychedelia: WATCH HERE. “I’ve been holding them back when I’m feeling like that,” Dreamer Boy sings over a blurry swirl of guitars. “Crybaby” reveals the singer/songwriter at his most vulnerable. “This song is about friendships, courage, and love,” he says. “I wrote it after a psychedelic experience that led to an outpouring of emotions that were bottled up for a long time. This song is meant to be that release.”

Dreamer Boy’s Previous Accomplishments

This is Dreamer Boy’s second single this year, coming on the heels of “Know You” and its accompanying video, which featured clips submitted from fans and friends. He’s been building that following organically, hitting the road with the likes of Clairo, Omar Apollo, The Marias, Still Woozy, and more since introducing his “cowboy pop” in 2018. PAPER Magazine wrote that “Know You” is “a track with mesmerizing synths and an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia that will have you chasing after the feeling of not knowing someone, but wanting to.”

Dreamer Boy’s independent breakthrough, Love, Nostalgia, drew acclaim from Milk.xyz, Elevator Magazine, and OnesToWatch, who called it a “multi-dimensional narrative of summer romance and teenage dreams. A wavy time capsule that transports you from 90’s MC-808s to the woozy dream pop of 2019.” The album’s follow-up single, “Puppy Dog,” received praise from The FADER, and had Clash comparing its “blissful naivety” to Rex Orange County and its “choppy guitar” to Prince. The track has amassed 7 million streams and counting.
