5 Piece Original Band. Guitar Driven Commercial Rock sound.
Dream Catcha evolved as a group of musicians from diverse backgrounds connected and discovered they were all heading in the one direction. Formed from the ashes of various bands Dream Catcha made its official debut in January 2003. In April 2003 Dream Catcha performed at Perth’s premier late nightclub La Bog Inn.
In 1999 Jeremy (vocals/guitar) and Jason (lead guitar/backing vocals) were writing and performing together in other bands. Corey (drums/percussion) joined the band in mid 2002 filling in at last minute notice for the drummer at a gig. His solid beats and brilliant drum patterns worked well with the band. After breaking away from their respective bands the 3 lads went in search of a bass player and were fortunate in finding Adam “Keys” (bass guitar/backing vocals). Adam has extensive experience in the music industry, playing in various bands for fifteen years before joining Dream Catcha. Adam is a versatile musician who has contributed to fill a void and has showed his versatility in contributing to the band’s original material. December 2003 saw Dream Catcha continue to strengthen their act by adding Keyboardist and part time guitarist Craig "Mo" to the line up. Craig is a classically trained musician and has spent most of his life performing, teaching and studying music. His dedication to his craft has enabled a smooth transition into the band and added yet another vocal harmony ensuring that the band is now both melodically and rhythmically the strongest it has ever been.
With the band complete and producing high quality original material the invasion of Perth’s premier venues began. Julian Tompkin from Perth’s Xpress Magazine wrote: “To date Dream Catcha continues to pollinate every live venue in Perth. This has seen Dream Catcha secure a residency at Mojo’s Fremantle and take bookings in other major Perth Original venues including, Carlton, Swan Basement, Fly by Nightclub, Indi Bar, The Paddington, The Leederville, Various universities, The Raffles and La Bog Fremantle and Perth.
In June 2003 the band were invited to Queensland to record their debut EP at Airlock Studios with top Australian producer Stuart Stuart of Chart Song Productions. The result was the “Here I Am” EP which is now receiving airplay on various stations throughout Australia, the USA and Europe. The band is releasing “Here I Am” in the USA in June 2004.
