"A match made in heaven"

A match made in heaven: the acoustic Latin jazz stylings of Key of Dreams performing in the intimate setting of The Camellia Lounge, the Pearl District's premier spot for jazz listening. This silky-smooth duo, with guitarists Eric Schultheis and Abe Wirth, play original tunes that sound as if they've been hiding in the Latin traditional songbooks for centuries. Don't miss this chance to catch the highly-professional group in our laid-back Lounge.

"Simply put, this is an excellent CD"

Simply put, this is an excellent CD of the highest caliber. Key of Dreams is comprised of top notch musicians and you can tell they put a lot of time and energy into the recording - the quality just sparkles. I'm very impressed with this CD and highly recommend it. I have played it over and over again and continue to be moved by it!

"Seemingly imported straight from Spain"

Seemingly imported straight from Spain, Key of Dreams strummed feathery notes tailored for a Pedro Almodovar film.

Key of Dreams - 6 song CD
Unlocked - 14 song CD



lodies seem to dance over a lush, harmonic groove resulting from the seamless integration of Eric and Abe’s guitars. Infectious, worldly, and percussive, their music captivates the senses of even the most discriminating listener.

Eric and Abe met while sitting-in at a local blues club. Instantly recognizing the musical chemistry, they began playing, writing, recording and performing together. Penning more than 100 songs, and with as many live performances under their belts, they've developed a distinctive sound and style highlighting their passionate guitar virtuosity. "We started with a rock/fingerstyle fusion kind of thing, you know – heavy on the distortion and acoustic open tunings. Now we've really incorporated the Spanish guitar sound into our more standard tuned jazz style, never disregarding our rock roots."

Key of Dreams’ new CD "Unlocked" consists of 14 original, instrumental compositions. "We took our time (about a year) writing, recording, mixing, and mastering it ourselves in our small studio. Moving almost exclusively to classical/flamenco guitars, we've opened up a new direction that's fresh and exciting." The sound and style are unique - drawing from many types of music including traditional and new jazz, rock, classical, flamenco, world, slack key, fingerstyle, and funk. "We’ve been told we sound like Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pat Metheny, Joe Satriani, Earl Klugh, and Ottmar Liebert, to name a few. That's a broad spectrum of artists to be compared to, which for us is good. We’re not trying to sound like anyone else, or any particular style of music for that matter. We just play and let it happen, which is very cool because there are really no boundaries. We can change the tempo, signature, tuning, key and overall feel whenever we want, and we do!”

Playing for hundreds of live audiences, live TV broadcasts, attaining FM radio airplay and rave press reviews, selling CDs and music downloads have all begun to put Key of Dreams on the world wide musical map where they intend to make their mark.
