King Dream has today released their new single titled ‘Past, Present, Future’. King Dream are an immersive band, to say the least, both musically and sonically in that the not only take the listener on a journey with each and every song, they give that listener something to walk away with. A thought, a memory, a soundtrack to that next special moment, or even just a smile.
With ‘Past, Present, Future’, that journey continues down a new and unbeaten path. A beautifully crafted and unique mix of beat, bounce, and rhythm with brilliant guitars overlaid and soulful vocals throughout. With soul as the goal and original psychedelia guiding the way, King Dream show that originality is achievable if you have the right people.

About King Dream
King Dream is a Bay Area rock ‘n’ roll band helmed by Oakland native Jeremy Lyon, a lifelong songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who crafts dive bar anthems with heart, brains and soul. Hard-rocking yet poignant, his music combines a love for American rock masters like Springsteen and Petty with ‘60s West Coast psychedelia and more contemporary torch-bearers like My Morning Jacket and The War on Drugs — all brought to life by a band of Northern California’s most in-demand players.
Lyon has played Outside Lands and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, toured nationally and internationally, and also knows what it’s like to busk on the street. King Dream songs deftly balance hope and world-weariness. They seem wise beyond their years, and they also have a way of sneaking up on you. Their shout-along choruses and searing guitar solos are at home in a darkened saloon, to be sure, but also — you know the giddy, ragged vulnerability that arrives when you’ve been awake for way too long on a road trip? Between the good times and the clinks of beer bottles these songs inspire a wistfulness, deep in your bones, for a place you’ve never been.
