HCM Interviews Dreama

HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Dreama. My stage name is directly influenced by my upbringing and my mentality towards achieving my “dreams”, growing up my mother would always tell me that I live in a “dream world” and that I need to be realistic about what I want from life. I’ve always wanted great things, not only monetary but also for my community as a whole. I have a vision for what life could be versus what it is. So I turned that narrative into my whole branding for my arts and everything you see from me. I really turn my vision/dreams into my reality and I’m actively pursuing growing a community around that.

HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
Dreama. I have always had a love for the arts… starting as a kid I would always be drawing/sketching all the time that then transpired to me starting to produce my arts sonically at the age of 14 when I started producing music in my bedroom for the artist in my local area. And then later vocally, From there I knew exactly how I wanted to get my vision/sound across to the world.

HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Dreama. My sense of style cannot really be put into one category. As I have a lot of influences on the way I create. Growing up in Jamaica I would say my first major influence would be the one and only Vybz Kartel. Then I had moved around countries a bit from the UK to the states so my influences became more hip-hop/Rap based as opposed to dancehall-based. So I started getting into Travis Scott’s music heavily and also drake so I would credit those artists for having a huge impact on my style of music today.

HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Dreama. I would love to thank my support system and the team I currently work with. Ie my family,friends,girlfriend and so forth, and a even larger shout out to my producer Matthew Money for being the first person to really see my vision and for working so hard with me to execute it.
