NYC-based jam fusion band, The Dream Logic, return to the scene with third studio album

November 20, 2018 (New York, NY)

On November 9th, one of New York City’s most exciting jam fusion bands, The Dream Logic, released their third studio album, Liquid Sunshine. Produced by Emmy- Nominated Joseph Colmenero (Selena, RZA, Phillip Glass) at The Cutting Room Studios, one of the last standing recording studios in Manhattan, this project is a fusion of jam, funk, jazz and rock & roll led by multi-instrumentalist and composer Charles Compo.

The Dream Logic is made up of Compo, drummer Camille Gainer and bassist Jerry Brooks. The band was founded in 2012 and released their first eponymous record in 2013, which featured Eric Krasno (Soulive), Mark Peterson (Vernon Reid, Cassandra Williams), James Casey (Trey Anastasio Band) and Mark Williams (The Legendary Roots Crew, Kool & The Gang). Since then, they’ve received great acclaim as a dynamic and unpredictable trio making impactful and progressive funk-rock music. Jam Bands has described their sonic soundscape as one that will “have you grooving, raging and rocking out.”

Liquid Sunshine features Mustafa Ahmed (Arthur Russell, Camila Cabello) on percussion, Jeff Miller on keyboards, and Ben Tyree on Guitar. When asked about the process of making Liquid Sunshine, Compo stated: “We’ve spent a lot of time just playing together coming up with pockets and feels that we like and then adding words that reflect the different moods and situations that we live through, from relationships to dealing with people. “ Individually, the members of The Dream Logic aren’t rookies dreaming of the big stages. Rather, they are seasoned veterans who individually have shared the stage and credits with pop, funk and soul superstars alike; playing with artists that range from Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera, to Roberta Flack and Martha Reeves, and composing for big names such as Twyla Tharp and The Weeknd. That might explain why, when all together, the three of them create a sound that is undeniably air-tight.
