Lori Dreier, has a easy, soulful vocal style with folk/rock sound.

Biography

Born and raised in Newton, Kansas, Dreier is a true Midwest farmer's daughter. Coming from a culture rich in Mennonite tradition, small town ease, farm living and family heritage, Lori brings a unique take to life that enriches her songwriting. Songs like "Tractor" and "Ten Million" are emblematic of her style.

Musically speaking, Lori is powerfully drawn to raw, original music and the craft of songwriting...she focus on creating what her nieces call "Lori Songs" and that suits her quite well. Simple coffee houses, festivals and small theater venues are her venues of choice, and she has been performing at these spots since moving to Fort Worth, Texas.

Fort Worth Weekly might have said it best "What's not to like? Live, you'll see a sweet-natured young gal sitting on a chair on-stage, an acoustic guitar in her lap, her shoes off, making the frightening endeavor of playing unaccompanied chick-rock look like a day at the spa. Bears a resemblance to actress Selma Blair and possesses a mistry, come-hither voice that coud make a fleet of soldiers on the other side of the globe stand up and salute."

Lyrics

Let You Go

Written By: Lori Dreier

vs.1
you make this up, and you make me go down
just to save a little heartache
oh hell another time around, and sometimes I wish for the sound
i wish we would just shut our mouths and not speak at all,
cause the rapsodies just piss us off...
i miss you baby i'm out of my head out of my mind
chorus:
here's to the giving away of the bliss of loves blindness
here's to the all i ever wanted is lost baby lost
here's to the letting go, to the finding my way on my own
here's to it, here's to it all
now that your gone
vs2
and now your gone, and I sit here alone
just to see if i can, do it any way any old way i want to,
tell me what it is what it is that draws me, draws me, that takes me, twists me up and turns me inside out,
i miss you baby, i'm out of my head out of my mind
chorus
bridge
friends say give it time, give it time
sweet jesus give it time
time will tell, time will always tell the truth, about me and you
chorus

Beautiful

Written By: Lori Dreier

vs.1
i remember when faith was easy
prayers were something real and we believed
we could do anything we could solve all our problems
we came to a crossroad
between want and need
then life be came harder
and our sins became larger so we think
flying high was too good for me
flying high was too good
chorus:
we got to put away our old ideas X3
for something beautiful
vs.2
i remember when innocence was lost
falling down from grace was the place
i was facing
and all the while i didn't think i could come near it
and you were too good for me and i was fallen
it was then that life became harder
and our sins became larger so we think
flying high was too good for me
flying high was too good
chorus:
