Alive in This Dream
'This is the stuff cult albums are made from.' (The Celebrity Cafe) 'The pure emotion and depth of Lori Hawk's music and lyrics are simply stunning.' (Progressive Soundscapes) 'Hauntingly beautiful...unlike any other music I've experienced.' (Seasoned With Love) 'Lori's multifaceted compositions and beautiful voice entrance.' (Collected Sounds) 'A touch of Tori Amos' piano styling, Loreena McKennitt's storytelling, and the magic of Stevie Nicks' lyrics...a stunning album overall.' (Morbid Outlook) 'An epic project of tremendous depth...Alive in this Dream is clearly a must listen!' (Musical Discoveries) San Francisco Bay Area-based singer/songwriter Lori Hawk has received critical acclaim for her second CD, Alive in this Dream. Reviewers describe this introspective eleven-song collection as 'haunting, sensuous' music that provides a 'contemplative journey for the listener.' Originally from Seattle, Lori's early rock influences were shaped by a developing interest in Eastern music and metaphysics--both central themes in her songwriting today. At one moment ethereal and transcendent, the next angst-filled and passionate, Alive in this Dream weaves together modern folk, rock, Celtic, and Eastern influences.
