Dr Dreamwalker  (Richard Schulman) sings, plays rhythm guitar, an occasional keyboard, and writes most of the songs. He is a licensed psychologist who often uses his experiences with psychotherapy and emotional healing as inspiration for the songs. He says, "I write for the many people, like me, who have reached a point where they sense their lives haven't turned out the way they expected. They want to know, 'What's next? How do we cope?' I'm hoping our music will inspire fresh and innovative perspectives for change and transformation in their lives." In addition to being a psychotherapist and songwriter, he is also the author of the book, "The Labyrinth of Healing: The Emotional Shifting Process."
