In The Kingdom of Dreams, the debut solo album by Ian Felice of The Felice Brothers, was released August 25 on Hall of Realms Records. Featuring ten new songs written by Felice in
2016 and recorded over the course of four days in February of 2017, the album was produced by Ian’s brother Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes), and recorded with fellow Felice
Brothers James Felice on keyboards and Josh Rawson on bass, as well as Simone Felice on drums. In The Kingdom of Dreams is available for pre-order now from iTunes and Ianfelice.com
with an instant download of the title track.

“When I began writing the songs that would become In The Kingdom Of My Dreams many were based on memories of my past but not necessarily all literal or in a logical sequence,” said Felice. “I became interested in the pull between reality and unreality and also in how time affects memory. By the end of 2016 I was run down from touring America, riding out the storm of political mania and juggling a few personal dilemmas (including the revelation that I would soon be a father). In The Kingdom Of Dreams became a place where I could escape from the numbing flood of data that permeates modern life and try to unravel pieces of my past, rearrange memories with dreams or lines from my imagination and construct something that functioned outside the limits of reality.”

“Many of the songs deal with childhood memories of Palenville (NY, where Felice grew up) and its people, like the song “In Memoriam” which is partly about the death of my stepfather when I was 8, “Water Street” that confronts my fears of becoming a father, or “21st Century” that deals with mental illness and politics on a more universal level. It only seemed right that I should make the album there, along the green banks of the Katterskill Creek and with my brother Simone as
producer. The result is a pretty reflective record that hopefully blows some cobwebs from the window of my psyche.”

Hotel Swampland, companion book of poems written by Felice at the same time as the album, is available now through Ianfelice.com.
Nick Panken (Of Spirit Family Reunion)
Spirit Family Reunion began singing together on the street corners of New York City in 2009. Since that time they have travelled the highways of America delivering raw, high energy, honest music. They have shared the stage with musical heroes such as Pete Seeger and Levon Helm, and have given notable performances at festivals including Stage Coach, Austin City Limits, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and the legendary Newport Folk Festival three times.

The band has self-produced and self-released two full-length studio albums - “No Separation” (2012) and “Hands Together” (2015) - along with multiple songbooks and other collections of recordings. They are currently working on a new record.
