Guided by the voice of SackJo22, 'Songs of Dreams' is an evocative collection of song and soundscape. Sometimes speaking, sometimes singing, sometimes bold, sometimes gentle, the songs are meditative, reflective, imperative. Composed using source material freely shared on ccMixter.org
, with tracks produced by SackJo22 and others, 'Songs of Dreams' starts with a jazz track, ends with a house track, and includes some experimental ambient chill, a touch of tribal, and a bit of singer-songwriter pop in between. Infused with vocal harmonies and featuring the inimitable guitar stylings of Haskel Joseph throughout, SackJo22’s poetic lyrics encourage the listener to embody their experience in support of healing and transformation.
Each of these songs was inspired by dreams. Dreams that were dreamed. Dreams that were seen. Waking dreams.Shadow dreams. Individual dreams. Collective dreams.
The deeper knowing we need for decision making is available to us at all times. It exists in our being. When we do not know, or when we cannot know, we get assistance through our dreams and other unconscious material that pops into our awareness. Whether moving through the surreal landscape of the dream, or experiencing the world as if it is the dream, each image, color, sensation, or feeling that we notice is a clue to our deepest processes as they are imbued with meaning. Dreams and the realm of the unconscious have their own language. When understood, It is a language that that resonates with revelation and inspiration.

I am truly thankful and appreciative of the musicians and artists who generously contributed their talents to this endeavor. I am also infinitely grateful to the collaborators, teachers, and helpers who generously guided me through the realm of the unconscious which is rich with significance.
Deep gratitude to those who have taught, inspired and supported me in my music and my dreams. Etja Stettin opened the door to the dream world and escorted me in. Angela Grillo’s deep love went there with me. Lauren Schneider helped me make more space in my life for the dreams to come into it. Emily Richards’ loving, supportive energy and friendship is soul food. I will always be grateful to Victor Stone for introducing me to ccMixter.org
which was a life-changing shidduch. Spinmeister is dear, as his encouragement was a light for me to follow. Copperhead, Timberman, and Abstract Audio patiently provided much appreciated musical advice, direction, mentoring. Many, many thanks to my friends and collaborators at ccMixter.org
who make ccMIxter the warmest musical home-base in the world. Kara Square deserves a special shout out for the final mastering, massaging and shepherding of this project out the door.
None of this would have been possible without the unfailing support of my family: Haskel, Tamara and Simone. My love for you is deeper than my dreams.
Thank you for dreaming with us.
