Stevie - ‘In Your Dreams’ Press Kit (2011)

This is a love song too.  It’s my love song to all the men and women and their families that I’ve visited over the years at Walter Read Hospital in Washington DC and Bethesda Naval Hospital.  Each and every one of them touched me in profound ways.  Their bravery and courage is something that I will keep with me in my heart for as long as I live.  They brought more to me than I could ever have brought to them.  The song was so important that I asked Lindsay to come over and bring his musical magic to it and he did ­­– as he always does.

This is about being part of a duo – a man and a woman in a musical group.  Two people who knew each other from very early on.  I met Lindsey in high school.  I walked right up to him and asked to sing “California Dreaming” with his band.  And so I did.  Then I didn’t see him for two years… Well you know the rest.  And Dave of course met Annie when they were both very young and unknown.  We both performed with our partners long after our romantic relationships ended.  Let’s say, we both understood what we’d been through.  

This started as a poem I wrote during the FM “Say You Will” Tour.  It’s about a relationship that could have worked but it missed by a mile…or missed by a second.
