Episode 7: "Dream" by Amari Amore
"Dream beautiful things."
With these words, Amari Amore seeks to weave a tapestry of sound and story, one of hope and light in which the listener can immediately become immersed. The appropriately titled "Dream" marks the first single from Amore's sophomore release, Evolution. With this song and this album, Amore wanted to bring love and compassion into the darker spaces listeners may have found during 2020's COVID-19 quarantine. "Dream" was first performed live in 2017, but Amore tells Emmeline why now is the perfect time for its release. The two talk about keeping a spirit of discovery in songwriting, how songs evolve, and how an education in classical music can affect one's creative process. They also discuss how everything comes back to music, and how music is, ultimately, love.
