Cale Hawkins - Deep Dream
Cale Hawkins creates music from a small, windowless room in Brooklyn. Hailing from Bemus Point, NY (population: 364), Hawkins has lived as a nomadic musician since 2012, touring, writing, and producing internationally with a wide array of artists and groups. His genre is best described as desperation.
Cale just sent his latest video our way and included this message with the track:
"Deep Dream is song about addiction. We all cope with addictions in one form or another; some addictions make us wish we could escape from it all, into a deep dream, one free from pain and suffering. However, the song is an open work – it's also about depression, heartbreak and insomnia, depending on the listener's interpretation. It's a cautionary tale about the dangers of receding into a deep dream, and the inevitable question of detachment: Am I better off than dead?"
