Singled Out: Dawn Landes and Piers Faccini's Book Of Dreams

Acclaimed musicians Dawn Landes and Piers Faccini just released their new joint "Desert Songs" EP and to celebrate we asked Dawn to tell us about the song "Book Of Dreams". Here is the story:

Collaboration is strange. Normally songwriting is a solitary pursuit for me, but when Piers Faccini and I started writing songs together it came naturally. One morning, I was sitting in his kitchen in the South France trying to think of a song idea for the day and I'd pulled a bunch of Sufi poetry books from the shelves. He told me he'd written a book of poetry inspired by the Sufi's.

When I looked through his poems one of them caught my eye. "This could be a song" I told him and pointed to the 'book of dreams' line "and this could be the chorus!" I had some music that I thought might fit it, and it did! Magic. We reworded a few things and 20 minutes later we had a song.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album right here!
