Charles Moret – ‘Dreammaker’

Dreammaker is a riveting new album from Los Angeles-based artist Charles Moret, emitting a moody and atmospheric array of rock and pop. Moret’s extensive experience in music composition and piano performance complement sincere lyrical storytelling, enhancing a compelling production full of consuming structural twists and turns. The eight-song album is also accompanied by two visual pieces.

The album’s opening title track is a showcase in tonal versatility, spanning cohesively from effervescent swells of multi-vocal energy into lyrical observations of mere observation, exuding a sparser soulful beautiful. “Blended Nights” follows with a twinkling subduedness to start, though arises eventually into an emotive alt-rock vigor — compelling melodically throughout, and comprising the latter of an opening one-two punch that emphasizes Moret’s knack for melodic immediacy and evolving tonal charm.

The eight tracks maintain a consistent quality throughout, with “Things You Wish” also standing out — emitting a lush, vulnerable grip as prancing piano and introspective vocals — emitting being “stuck in the cycle,” — assemble an illuminated entrancement. “Time and Time Again” concludes the album with further enchantment, building amidst twinkling keys and calming percussive pit-pattering. Dreammaker is a success full of intrigue and memorable songwriting.

“Things You Wish” and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
