Dreaming in Stereo Releasing Album Through Dying Van Gogh Records

n1185191615_30364876_78155Dreaming in Stereo is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist, singer songwriter, Fernando Perdomo.

Perdomo is one of Miami’s most in demand sidemen and this project lets him make music that defines who he really is with a mix of Power Pop and 70’s era Art- Rock Perdomo calls, Progressive pop.

Perdomo is a musical eccentric, known as much for his quirks as his brilliant ability to pull exquisitely crafted guitar lines out of thin air. His forthcoming album is set to drop nationwide on July 21st through Dying Van Gogh Records, a record label based out of New York City.

  “Steal this Song” and “Im not going to move to LA” are blatant social commentary set to a universal mash up of modern alternative with 70s nostalgia rock, hinting at echoes of Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Supertramp, and Frank Zappa. “LA” has been heralded as Miami’s new musical anthem, criticizing the lack of support Miami has for live music, disguised in a defiant battle cry proclaiming “I’m staying right here!”. Songs like “Lazy” and “Smile” represent a softer poppier side of the music, heavily leaning toward the influence of LA power pop legends like Jason Falkner, John Brion, and Micheal Penn.    Instrumental “Secret Sound 72” showcases Perdomo’s melodic and powerful guitar style and is a tribute to Todd Rundgren who Dreaming in Stereo opened for in front of thousands.  Perdomo lays all the instruments from drums, keys, bass, guitars to percussion and other bizarre effects.  At only 28 years old, he is already considered an established guitarist-extraordinaire in music circles.

Perdomo is an accomplished musician, producer and engineer, working with such acts as Jorge Moreno, the band Transcendence, Hilary McRare among others.  He will add everything from guitar to cello to sitar to drums to an album when recording, all in a matter of hours.

Live, Perdomo is augmented by Roger Houdaille on bass, Derek Cintron on drums and who fronts arena rock band DC-3, and flute virtuoso Cynthia Kivlan rounds out the band with her unique Ian Anderson inspired playing. This band has made music together for almost 10 years now. Solo shows are a spectacle of sound, as Perdomo uses a rudimentary looping pedal to loop his Vocals, and guitar in a very harmonic and musical way. “Im the only solo performer with 5 part harmony backing vocals” Perdomo proclaims.

Perdomo is currently wrapping up a new album in the studio under the band name Dreaming In Stereo, preparing for a US tour, and performing at various venues in the Miami local scene.

In the meantime, get your hands on a special collector’s edition six-song EP called Six Track Mind that features advance tracks from the upcoming Dreaming In Stereo release.  There was a limited quantity of EPs pressed to commemorate the band’s recent concert opening for legendary Todd Rundgren that are available for purchase at shows only. The full length album will be released to stores nationwide on July 21st on Dying Van Gogh Records.
