“Speak to me your greatest fear and I will show you a love that is stronger . . .”
This Friday, my new single and music video will be out. The production of Dreamer has been a delight and I am bouncing-off-the-walls-excited and sighing deep sighs of relief because it is all done and ready to be released.
I wrote Dreamer in two parts. The first part came spontaneously and I shared it online back in June: Spontaneous Song: Dreamer – Stephanie Baker
The second part came just as spontaneously later that month. The verses came so easily that I barely had time to write them down before the next line came rushing out.
“As I open my eyes and observe my generation, I see a trending obsession to know who we are . . . ”
So, I recorded a draft of the entire song. And up until a month ago, I thought it was my finished product and planned on releasing it this month. That said, I wound up dumping that version entirely and starting over.
The idea for the music video storyline came to life when I saw a friend post a photo of his INCREDIBLE space/aqua suit that he was working on—yes, he made his costume. It was so perfect and the exact sort of whimsy I had envisioned for his character.
Matt is exceptionally talented and so is his daughter, Fiona. You can see Matt make an appearance in Fallen Man, and Fiona playing a young me in Enough. I was blessed to have them act side-by-side in Dreamer. Their father-daughter chemistry is absolutely adorable.
Also making it’s debut appearance is the chess set my father built when he was fourteen years old in wood working class. Fun fact. We didn’t lose a single piece to the lake.
Dreamer is the ninth in a series of ten songs I’ve been releasing every month since March. If you missed the others, you can buy or stream them on any of your favorite music distribution platforms online, including Spotify.
The video will be posted Friday afternoon, so be sure to check back! If you like the video, please share it with your friends and help me spread it around. Thank you all for your continued love and support!
