Sawyer's Dream

About Sawyer’s Dream

Infectious, soulful, textured melodies along with thoughtfully crafted harmonies, the modern sound and nostalgic sensibilities of Sawyer’s Dream are sure to stay in your consciousness, and may even enter your dreams.”  -Keith Johnson | WDGY Radio

Inspired by the writings of Mark Twain and the vocal harmonies of bands such as the Mamas & the Papas, ABBA and Fleetwood Mac, Minneapolis based Sawyer’s Dream is a unique cross-blending of Americana, Pop, Rock and Soul. Featuring powerhouse female lead vocals and intricate four-part harmonies, their all-original music is engaging, upbeat and earthy, offering the listener a modern take on the classic rock of the ’60s and ’70s. Sawyer’s Dream includes visual and imaginative lyrical masterpieces focusing on themes of love, life, dreams, the natural, and the supernatural. Formatted for an audience of all ages, the songs will take you back to simpler times; a time of dreams, nature and human kindness.
