Exclusive Premiere: John Sierra – A Dream Worth Keeping
Guitarist, singer-songwriter John Sierra – formerly of the Raleigh-based alt/rock band Attalus on Facedown Records – will make his solo debut with the single “A Dream Worth Keeping” on 9/3/21. We’re excited to bring you this exclusive early premiere of the song, before it releases tomorrow.
“A Dream Worth Keeping” marks a departure from the alt/rock sound of his former band, and takes a deep dive into indie-folk with influences that range from The Killers, Mumford and Sons, C.S. Lewis and Puccini. Acoustic guitar with heavenly harmonies, the first single explores the ambivalence between fear, desire and our dreams.
As John explains, “’Dream Worth Keeping’ is a conversation with myself about pushing through fear when it comes to desires and dreams. It’s my way of working through frustration and deep regret. I spent much of my life trying to prove myself to others, living in a ‘dream-only’ world, hiding in addiction or behind others who I deemed better, for fear of rejection.”
