San Francisco to Nashville

The Mary Dream are Blake Ryan and Elise Bellew. Originally from the San Francisco area, the two moved to Nashville last year and have been diligently at work creating their own unique dreamy pop style.

Their infectious melodic sounds have drawn comparisons to The Sunday’s, Mazzy Star, Fiona Apple and Natalie Merchant. Elise’s velvety smooth voice delivers sophisticated thoughtful words in perfect balance with Blake’s smooth chords and rich guitar. The result is a soft but splendidly layered sound.

An active part of Nashville’s burgeoning rock scene, Beautiful World is The Mary Dream’s first full length CD which they released themselves on Super Universe records (Sept 2005). The collection of 11 sweet and whole compelling songs were primarily recorded in their home studio. The drum tracks were recorded by top Nashville session drummer Steve Brewster who has worked with Jewel and Faith Hill. The CD was mixed and mastered at The Art House in Nashville by Richie Biggs (producer Switchfoodt, Nichole Norderman, Sam Ashworth).

This is just the first we will hear from alt.pop rock artists, The Mary Dream, and look forward to hearing what comes next.
