Biography

The American Dream formed in mid-2010 as Zachary, Trevor, and Bradley left the metal scene to pursue a new musical sound. They had each played in bands together for years, and while they were nervous to leave their underground roots, they had different ambitions than they had years before. Jeffrey, whom the three knew from mutual friends, was added to the group not long after, thus forming the current lineup.
For several months, the band struggled to define their new sound, but worked hard to find a style that incorporated both their musical experiences and their ambitions for the band. After playing around with a few styles, they found their niche and began writing as many songs as possible in hopes of releasing an album sometime in the near future.
In late fall of 2011, The American Dream teamed up with Mark Densford of High Hat Entertainment (Louisville, KY), who brought years of management experience into the picture to help lead the group in the right direction. This guidance made it possible for the boys to produce and release the music video for their first single “Shut Your Mouth” in early January of 2012. Densford’s sound advice paid off as the video saw over 4500 views in its first four weeks on YouTube. Finally, in mid-February of 2012, The American Dream released their debut album, Can You Feel It? after spending a little over a year in Madden Studios (Clarksville, IN) working tirelessly to write the best songs they could.
While their fans love listening to their songs online and spreading word about the band and their music, it’s The American Dream’s live show that really packs the punch, gets the fans going, and brings in new fans who have only heard the band and want to see them live. The stage presence and musical energy of these four men makes it hard to stand still during the show, and the swagger of The American Dream will have you swooning by the end of the set.

Lyrics

Shut Your Mouth

Written By: The American Dream

You move your hips so smooth to the rhythm of my lips.
You say that it’s not worth it, that we’ll never be more than friends.
You see the way I look at you now, baby, hear me out.
I’ve got exactly what you need. I don’t think I need to spell it out.

If you would only let me in. (x2)

Let me rock and roll your body. Let your love bleed through my veins.
We ain’t got to tell nobody…better yet…just shut your mouth.

I’ve been here once before now let me freshen up my moves.
I’ll turn things right around. Make you forget it was me that’s wanting you.

If you would only let me in. (x2)

Let me rock and roll your body. Let your love bleed through my veins.
We ain’t got to tell nobody…better yet…just shut your mouth.

I’ll make you lose yourself, yeah, lose yourself. Let the music in your body exit you.
You swore you’d never let it take control. You let me in.

You’re running in circles, you’ve got your head twisted.
You said you’d never love again, you’d never love again but you did.

Mine Tonight

Written By: The American Dream

Let me tell you something you ain’t heard before.
A story dating back when I was just a boy.
I met a lady who I swore would one day be mine.
It seems to me that eventually I wasn’t worth her time.

I can’t believe what she said to me.
But I made an oath to have her home with me. It ain’t a problem.

I heard a ring, checked my phone where I read her name.
She told me that she fell in love. I asked, “What’s his name”?

I can’t believe what she said to me.
But I told her, ‘You will fall in love with me”.

(Oh)Brother, I don’t want no problems.
(Oh no)Yeah, see I just want your girlfriend.
(Just this once)Baby, let me take you out tonight.
I know that you will be mine tonight.

I’ve got a lesson to learn, tell me about it, without a doubt.
Shivers down my spine sent from myself.
I told my body that she would never mean more to me.
But who am I kidding? I’m going to do my thing.

Sweet nothings, the voice she craves.
Honey, I got it all, a heart of gold, be rich with me.

(Oh) Brother, I don’t want no problems.
(Oh no)Yeah , see I just want your girlfriend.
(Just this once) Baby, let me take you out tonight.
I know that you will be mine…

Tonight is falling, so are you.
Your love is lost.
Well, let me pick it up for you.
Can you feel it underneath your skin?
