Dream true – single

Release date: scheduled for 18.10.2019
Artist: Erik Sjøholm
Songwriters: Erik Sjøholm, Sebastian Jacobson
ISRC: FIEDS1900001

”The track is soulful funk time machine that takes you back to late 70’s.  Reminded me of some old white funk hits, like Boz Scaggs track Lowdown, and Rod Stewarts Do you Think i’m Sexy.”

— Eric Broyhill / Mastering Engineer & Founder of Monsterlab Audio”

¨I have been following Erik for almost two years now and he just surprised me with this amazing production full of musicality, funky soulful vibes with a really tight groove, mature vocal arrangement and uplifting message. I personally love those guitar details that remind me to Mike Oldfield and it’s worth to point out the amazing pocket between the instruments with the bass as the perfect anchor of the song. Ready to hit the dance floor!¨

— Miguel Díaz / Musician & Producer
