Mermaid’s beautiful and gorgeous single ‘Dreamer’ rises up like the best of what we all can dream to achieve. What would happiness look and feel to you? What can a perfect world be? What will set your world on fire, in passion?
Candace Quarrels and Brittany Campbell bring this project up to speed and into life. The duo brings combinations of r&b, folk, and neo-soul to a newer place of appreciation.
The couple duo met while both starring in the Chicago production of ‘Hamilton: An American Musical’. Soon after discovering a similar love for genre bending music, and noticing how similar their intonations are, the two began to collaborate musically and, voilà, Mermaid was born.
‘Dreamer’ brings everything from the past of Mermaid, into a new era of work and dedication. A belying anthem for what we all can do, when we all put out minds and hearts, in the right frame of mind. It’s an invocation for what’s truth and what’s most important to you in that frame of personal aspects.
The song is a majestic revelry and pinned by beauty.
Currently the band is working on an LP with Matthew Otto (Moses Sumney, Solange) and King Michael Coy (Anderson Paak. H.E.R.). The album is set for release sometime early 2021.
