Dreams, in its original form is quite anthemic, euphoric even, but here it is rendered into a more dreamy vision, toeing the line perfectly between the drowsiness of that waking moment and the realization that this is a new day and anything is possible. It wanders a more shimmering and chiming path, takes its time and both cocoons and energises the listener.
 

The original was wrought of bass grooves, sparing keyboard lines and delicate guitar motifs, here it is reworked into a more undulating and ornate soundscape, one built more of textures and atmospheres, space and see-through gossamer layers rather than the more traditional sound which gave birth to the song.

And rather than merely reinterpreting the song, Jacques instead gives it a new place to inhabit, lyrically the same but musically given a new and of-the-moment lease of life, one which allows it to explore new possibilities whilst never losing sight of the precision and beauty of the Fleetwood Mac classic. 









Too many artists approach other people’s work with an eye on nostalgia, happy to rework classic moments but not tinker with them too much. Rich Jacques deals in potential, interested less in the current timeline from the song's journey from its point of creation to the present day, more interested in where that song might go next. This is not the sound of the past being reworked to fit with current tastes, this is the sound of the song being projected into the future.

"This one started over a year ago with a really cool track my buddy Billy Lefler made. The intention was to write something to the track, but "Dreams" kept popping in my head so I just ran with it.

What I love about this song is that it sounds like freedom. There’s such an ease and acceptance... it makes you want to throw everything to the wind and let it fall where it may."

ABOUT


  The spirit that LA base singer and songwriter Rich Jacques has been spreading through his music is powerful yet simple and direct.

    Breathe in, revel and let go.  It is clear after listening to his latest album ‘Joy follows like a shadow that never leaves” that the joy we all seek is found within the very peaks and valleys of our own journey. 

   His intimate meditative vocals mixed with the lush soundscape has earned him an esteemed reputation. After listening to the expansive and emotive upcoming album, it’s clear Rich has been sculpting his craft for some time. 

 

   From previous releases under his name and his band project, Right The Stars, his songs have been heard in major commercials such as Honda and XBOX, and in TV shows and major motion pictures like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Breakup”.

   As a music producer and songwriter, he collaborated with artists such as Gold Kimono, Colin Hay, Lisa Loeb, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Katz.

    In 2017 Rich won a Grammy for his collaboration with Lisa Loeb on her Album ‘Feel What U feel.’ However these are merely pieces of a puzzle that have granted him access to pull from such a universal tapestry and deliver the sentimental artistry that he embodies today, making Rich Jacques someone to keep an ear out for.
