"Healing Dream Feelings" [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Healing Dream Feelings was written to reflect a powerful personal dream.  It explores the emotions and self discovery that were had in the  following days.  

  • Song Credits: Charlie Laughlin - Guitar, Bass, and Vocals 
  • Gary Zucker - Drums, Lyrics  

Video filmed and edited by the amazing Alex Zarek!  

The song was recorded, produced, and mixed by Eric LaBrosse at Cherry  Pit Studios, and the song was mastered by Joel Wanasek.

Her Daunting Flame

This  song came about as a passion project of mine that I wrote about my favorite actress, Dakota Fanning. I had been going  through a difficult time in my life, feeling lost about my views  on love and overall happiness, and seeing her films, photos, and interviews really filled that hole in my heart that I was feeling all  the time. With all of these feelings, I decided to write a thank you of  sorts for her. I wrote every part out and recruited some friends of mine  to help record it. Spotify
