You're Dreaming is the national debut of acclaimed roots music duo The Cactus Blossoms. Led by brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum, the band started as a vehicle for the siblings to hone their harmonic abilities on classic American songs with minimal instrumentation. They quickly amassed a fervent fanbase in Minnesota s Twin Cities and found themselves on the public radio's A Prairie Home Companion.
Produced by JD McPherson, the 10 original songs on You're Dreaming showcase the incredible seamless vocals of the brothers in the time honored tradition of blood harmony akin to The Everly Brothers. The danceable Stoplight Kisses and Clown Collector deliver memorable, infectious melodies, while the heartfelt ballad Queen of Them All and the introspective If I Can't Win demonstrate their natural and superior songwriting prowess. Infusing elements of early rock n roll and classic country while tracing their musical heroes footsteps back to the roots, The Cactus Blossoms have arrived with a sound that’s uniquely their own.
