The Dream Vampires is a collaborative project based on a long standing relationship between CEO and Label Owner/Producer Michael A Puskas and a talented bunch of musicians, vocalists and producers who all came together to realize a creative vision that a multitude of musical styles fused together with high energy modern production and strong identifiable lyrics could become the ultimate studio band with no intention to ever go out and take it live. From time to time new songs were written, produced and added to an assortment of online websites promoted by the label to spread the word about this highly fresh and unique musical outfit. The concept focuses on a vision that the “Dream Vampires” are those in the world that unwittingly suck our creativity dry. They feed off creative people as they have no drive of their own which makes them jealous…a very dangerous emotion indeed. A spineless collective that continue to threaten all that is new, original and unique by diluting its purpose to a simple emotional fodder that they feed to the masses and convince them of its viability and worth. This project is a labour of love and five years in the making and is dedicated to anyone who has felt the sting of creative jealousy. Rest assured you are not alone…..Retribution can be a sweet bitch!

We are pleased to announce the introduction of a number of new players to the team. Our number one male vocalist and engineer, Nick Stecki (Phoenix) has joined us as a song writing collaborator on the project. Dave Mustang (Oklahoma) has joined us as a Producer on the project. Sheridan Black and Sarah Hewett (Australia) have joined us as guest vocalists and song writers on the project while Brazilian based Fernanda Macedo has joined us as a recording vocalist on the project and plans to releasae a number of the new tunes from the soon to be recorded, "Orbital Dream" album in various territories around the world. Finally, Tim Metcalfe recently guested as male vocalist on a number of tunes for the new album. These included, The Reckoning and Pieces of HIstory which along with Salt on Sea and Let me Sleep have been earmarked as tracks for the new Twilight TV Series in 2011.

The first piece of licensing NEWS is that most of the NEW tracks have been picked up under a new deal with Peter Rafelson of RMC in LA as part of the soon to be launched, Digi Ramp Online Licensing system while EOS Music has also picked up most of the tracks for it's commercial work place licensing platform in the US.

We are pleased to announce that WE are about to undertake the recording of our second album, "Orbital Dream" and so we have joined forces with Pledge Music the NEW online platform that marries artists with FANS via a strong incentive based program to raise money while also supporting various charities. To see what it's all about click on the Pledge Music badge below for all the details... and please Pledge your support for the project.... no matter how small.

The Way I Feel (Nick Stecki)
A really well delivered tune with a strong orchestral vibe and an anthemic vocal delivery. A well defined identifiable storyboard with some great harmony work and sweet tones throughout.



Ballad
h h

Top In A Spin (Nick Stecki)
Here is a track that mixes up the old school and the more modern sounds of today. Reminiscent of classic Zeppelin and filled with strong dynamics throughout the track lives and breathes as it lifts and drops in the structure to create a strong well defined arrangement that offers something quite fresh to the would be listener. Great sonic guitar sound and powerful low end rhythm section that can send a shiver down your spine. Really proud of this one!



Alternative Modern Rock
h h

Salt On Sea (Sheridan Black)
Here is a beautifully crafted song that has a real original flair to it and is delivered in a typically dark and wanting Twilight style which makes it very much today. Sweet orchestration and a structured arrangement gives this song a real edge which makes it a very worthy listen.



Ambient
h h

Let Me Sleep (Fernanda Macedo)
Here is a well crafted orchestral piece that has some sweet changes in the structure. A well delivered vocal storyboard with some strong harmony work and a great identifiable storyboard.



Easy Listening/Soft Rock
h h

Smoke & Mirrors (Nick Stecki)
Here is the most commercial and radio friendly tune on the album. With strong verses and sweet harmony's to hooky chorus structure complemented by sweet acoustic guitars and three part harmony's the song unfolds an all too familiar tale and delivers with great results. The outro is bold and beautifully delivered with some great vocal rounds which complement the lead vocal melody perfectly. This song will be the first radio single from the album.

Alternative Pop Rock
h h

Take You Down (Melissa Pollard)
An interesting mesh of musical feels and quirky guitar based imagery combined with a powerhouse beat structure and robust raw production and ably delivered by session vocalist Mel Pollard with a little help from its writer/producer Mike Puskas on the chorus side of things.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Hard Alternative
h h

Pieces Of History
Here is a totally modern and in your face edgy and powerhouse rock tune with a really strong commercial feel. Strong hooky chorus and a big anthemic outro with a real cool style in the vocal delivery.



Alternative Modern Rock
h h

Strange Days (Chris Vaughn / Nick Stecki)
A strong well structured tune with a bit of a Deep Purple vibe to it. Great vocal delivery and some sweet harmony work throughout.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Alternative Modern Rock
h h

H20 (Chris Vaughn / Nick Stecki)
Here's a song that takes you back to the whimsical days of Sgt Pepper. A track filled with interesting twists and turns that challenge the listener to define what is going to happen next. Structured with loads of reverse tape loops, delayed tap vocals and powerful quirky lyrics with a real sense of a spaced out vibe and very very different to anything available in the market today.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Ambient Pop
h h

Shifting Sands (Instrumental)
A beautiful soundscape of middle eastern tones mixed with contemporary Spanish guitar and fused together with strings and a dulcet piano feel.

Ambient
h h

On My Own (Chris Vaughn)
A very simple track with a really straight forward structure and arrangement with the focus completely on the vocal delivery and the highly identifiable lyrics. Great harmony work and a few surprises at the end.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Easy Listening/Soft Rock
h h

Visions of You (Nick Stecki)
Here is a really powerfully driven tune with a strong sense of itself and conveying an image and theme of pure betrayal. Filled with a big chorus hook and some great twists and turns in the structure. Its a solid tune and a fitting addition to the album.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Hard Rock
h h

My Hidden Truth (Ian Abrahmson)
Here is a strong introspective track with a great identifiable storyboard and filled with a big chorus hook and a powerful vocal delivery with some great rounds and harmony's

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Pop
h h

Looking Glass (Melissa Pollard)
A more mellow style of female pop/rock tune with a big rhythm section and some sweet vocal hooks in the tracks melody. Although very simple in arrangement the song packs a real punch from the bridge through the outro.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Alternative Pop Rock
h h

Twisted Around (Nick Stecki)
Here is a beautifully structured power ballad and ode to my father (RIP) Its filled with emotion and desire for change and identifies with people who have lost a loved one. Beautifully arranged and delivered with some great vocal harmony's and interesting slide guitar work

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Modern Rock
h h

My Painted Lady (Nick Stecki)
Here is a more layed back track with some interesting twists and turns in the structure that are helped along with a strong dynamic vocal delivery. The storyboard speaks very much for itself and the production moves between a slower and more somber tone to a high energy outro with a lot of urgency and a power rock feel to really drive the tune

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Rock Ballad
h h

Travel Diary (Instrumental)
Here is a basic music interlude that will tie various tracks on the album together. Featuring some great slide guitar and great rootsy feel throughout.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Avantgarde
h h

Midnight Dreary (Instrumental)
An opening theme for a new Vampire movie for 2010 that has the log line, Dracula meets the Doors. Beautiful sound scape that builds a well crafted tapestry of sounds that invoke some amazing dark images and mixed to perfection.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qcZV0zVLY



Hard Alternative
h h

On My Own (Instrumental)
Here is a reprise of On My own and just the instrumental piano version which really has a lot of impact and shows off the obvious musicianship of the performer. Perfect for any major motion picture.
