Dreamwalker Studio 

Things are happening in the Dreamwalker world. Dreamwalker Studio has a non-dreamwalkers project on board. My young friends, Wes Robertson and Jesse Lipman, asked me to record a demo of an original song of theirs with an intention to working on an album. These two are really talented guys, the song is great, and I had a blast working with them. I did have the insight of what an accomplishment it is for us to have completed our album, as I remember when we were where Wes and Jesse are today. I can say I was there when "The Cold Calming Rain" was born.

Peace,

Waiting for the Record. . .   

Hello Dreamwalkers,

I'm here on a Sunday with nothing left to do on our album but wait. I haven't had this much anticipation for an album since Who's Next. Of course I can listen to the mp3s on my computer, but somehow it's not the same as holding an album (even a CD) in one's hands. I had the album on earlier today and every time I listen it sounds better to me (a very good sign). Thought I'd include another clip from the record. 

You are invited to join us for the album release party on Sunday March 31 @ 7 PM. 6250 Midnight Pass Rd. Bring food drink and a lawn chair. Contact me and I'll provide the gate code. 

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

If you would like to join us, please contact me either by text (941) 348-4740; e-mail: dr.richardschulman@yahoo.com, Facebook IM, Instagram message or leave a message on this website and I'll give you the gate code. 

Would love to see our old and new friends at this event. Take a listen to a clip from the album.

Dreamwalkers Album: On It's Way 

At present, I'm uploading our album to a CD replication company. This is an interesting process. You pre-upload the CD, then burn it from the upload, right now I’m listening to a CD I burned and then upload it for real. The album sounds great. It's an exciting time for us. Here are the front and back covers. We are looking forward to having them available in a few weeks. See you at the album release party.

Peace,

Dreamwalkers: Album Release Party 

Hey Dreamwalkers Family and Friends,

As The Beatles once said, "The Long and Winding Road," (well if you are going to quote, might as well take from the best) leads to this door. The album is finished musically, it's in the bank. We should have the album back cover and liner notes done over the next few days, then off to CD Baby and our dream is manifest. Many thanks to Patrick Russini for his help in mixing and mastering at the finish line. 

So, we are working on a venue for a release party. It looks like March 31 is the date. If you would like to join us, contact me either by text (941.348.4740); e-mail dr.richardschulman@yahoo.com; or Facebook IM, as we need to have a head count. Our event will be happening at a very cool place and I will give the address and code to get in when you contact me. Our idea is to get together around sunset and play for a few hours, so think about pot luck, BYOB, and perhaps bring a lawn chair. Will provide details as they become solid.

We are very happy to have completion with this project. The record sounds great. 

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers Album: Mastering Songs 

We are now nearing the end of the journey, an album is about to be born. With a strong lesson on Mastering tracks from Pat Russini, I've been working on finishing up our project. I'm about halfway through, and the songs are still sounding great. Having Pat to consult with streamlines the process, and gives me confidence. Save March 31, it looks like a good day for an album release.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers Album: Adding A Professional Touch 

I've been mixing songs for a lot of years, and I consider myself to be an advanced amateur. I have confidence I can make well recorded songs sound excellent. Tonight, being Patrick Russini's "sous chef" I found out what a professional can do with the same material. I sat with Pat for 2 1/2 hours as he painstakingly went through seven of our tracks and made brilliant moves to make our album go from sounding great to sounding professional. I was taking notes, and it was my job as technical assistant, to mix the last four songs. The songs are all mixed, and I've sent the last four to Pat for his evaluation (always learning, always new tests). We will re-master them as soon as all the mixes are done. I'm blown away by what can be accomplished 'in the box' (on computer). 

Moving along on another front, I have mock-ups for the back cover and inner sleeve on the album, which I will include here.

The good news is with a few days off before tonight's mix fest, I went into my catalog and have identified 37 songs I'd like to record. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the music.

Big Thank You, Patrick Russini.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Music Vacation Adventure. . . Tom Petty. . . Pat Russini. . . CD 

We have returned from our mini-vacation, maxi-music adventure, and I am inspired. A couple of thoughts. . . we saw five shows in six days (with one Dreamwalkers rehearsal thrown in on the off day), and they were all terrific. The Mersey Beatles (got to meet John Lennon's sister, Julia Baird), Dave Mason and Steve Cropper (Booker T and the MG's) with The Lords of 52nd St (Billy Joel's old band with a Billy clone singing and playing piano, eerily good), Fleetwood Mac, The Zombies, and Tommy Emmanuel. Five different venues in four cities.

Three of the shows spoke about Tom Petty or did tributes to him over one year since his passing. The respect and love for this man run through our lives. I cried again, when Fleetwood Mac did their version of "Free Falling." Just seeing Mike Campbell on the stage without Tom made me tear up. I'm not alone in being unable to wrap my head around his passing.

Each show was wonderful and very different. Seeing such great musicians and being able to interact with a few of them was so healing and inspiring. I thought I'd be exhausted from so many concerts, but no, I was energized. We actually had tickets to see Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues, but he had to cancel due to illness. I was ready for more, and still am. 

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I sat with Pat Russini, our drummer and technical consultant on the mixing/mastering process. Pat noticed there were some issues with the drums, and he went back and miked his kit and hit the ball out of the park. We have new, fresh drum tracks for four of the songs and they sound great (well Pat recorded them, I'm not surprised). This means we are a little behind in our process, but more than worth the wait. 

I'm doing my homework regarding CD processing and web presence for our work. Daniel Schulman of Schulman Media is working on the back cover and liner notes for the album. Big changes coming for Dreamwalkers. 

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker
