PHOTOS: DREAMERS at The Basement East (w/ Smallpools & Young Rising Sons)

DREAMERS have been in my orbit for quite some time. I remember back in the early days of this platform — before we moved to Nashville, and before we were even known as Underground Music Collective — when I would drive through the streets of Bethlehem, PA bumping tunes like “Sweet Disaster” and “Wolves (You Got Me),” traveling from gig to gig, and from meeting to meeting.

So, when we had an opportunity to catch them at The Basement East alongside Smallpools (and with the support of New Jersey natives, Young Rising Sons), we had to jump on it!

Heartbreaker or Heartbroken? Stephen Babcock Explores His Growth on ‘When We Were Kids Ourselves’

When Stephen Babcock comes to Nashville’s famous Bluebird Cafe this Friday, he will do so in celebration of his new album, When We Were Kids Ourselves. The 10-track offering is a nod to the ways we grow, as we encounter life changes and challenges in our relationships — with others, as well as ourselves.

“This album is about the journey and growth experiences post ‘growing up,'” Babcock states. “It’s so easy to feel isolated when you’re taking on something challenging in life, and we tend to normalize the idea that in adult life, we’re supposed to have it all figured out by now. I hope my music serves as a bastion for people experiencing challenging emotions, and I hope my voice can help those struggling to find the words they’re looking for in their own life.”

It’s a high-powered, rock-heavy start to this week’s UMC20 playlist. That’s where it starts, but it’s not where it ends up.

You’ll notice different moods and genres gradually peppering their way in as you progress through this week’s 20-track volume. And, for all of the frenetic energy that starts things off, by the end of the ride, you’ll be vibing on a completely different wavelength.
