Room to Dream
'Dream so big, that people laugh at you when they hear your dreams.' Tom Wehrle heard this said years ago, from a friend and very well took it to heart. For the past 4 years Wehrle has pursued his musical talents and his search has allowed him to travel around the country on multiple occasions, perform hundreds of time, release an indie CD and garner a belt of accolades. This summer, Wehrle is set to release his sophomore release on August 30, 2005, entitled 'Room to Dream'. In music circles, the sophomore album is known as a hex or a curse on a music career. This isn't the case, as is evident upon first listen of Room to Dream. The album was recorded and mixed by Wehrle at his own studio and mastered by Ron Boustead (Lenny Kravitz, Smashing Pumpkins, Ben Harper) at Precision Mastering in Hollywood, CA. Room to Dream features Drew Bailey (Greenwheel) playing drums on most of the 13 tracks. Of course, living with a specific goal and a dream in your heart comes at a cost. Wehrle has been fortunate to rely on support from his friends and family in making his dreams a reality. Everyone has to start somewhere, and for Tom his beginning is a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. He lives at home in close quarters to Milkshake Studios and has a strong relationship with his brothers and sisters. Performing mainly as a college artist, Tom still dreams of playing with a live band in packed venues all over the country. For anyone who has ever inspired to be in music, performing as an unknown in colleges across the country can be a very humbling experience, to say the least. Wehrle understands that if everyone is pursuing a dream and not paying attention to those around you, it's all in vain. So, we should all help and encourage each other to pursue excellence and dream big. The album is destined to be a pop music lovers dream. Wehrle writes a clever hook for each song and delivers powerful lyrics and vocals to paint a picture that relates. Wehrle writes songs with topics which range from seeking love to reaching for your dreams to encouragement. With musical influences like Switchfoot, John Mayer, and the Wallflowers, it's a great pop mix which could easily find it's way onto radio if the right people gave Wehrle a chance.
