Ashes and Dreams
Lisa Saunders is the Canadian half of chillout dream-pop duo, Ashes and Dreams. Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Lisa collaborates electronically with her Transylvanian band-mate Liv Mircea – who now resides in the UK. While they may be separated by an ocean, that isn't stopping the determined duo from making big waves in the chill out genre.
Recently signed by the Dream House Beats label and distributed by Believe Digital UK, Ashes and Dreams’ recordings have received global airplay on stations like Ocean Radio Chilled, Chilled Lounge Grooves, Stingray Digital satellite radio, DJ Ampz' The Deep Chill, SBS Chill Australia, and CBC Radio. Lounge Masters International also selected Ashes and Dreams' deep chill track Heat Down Low for its world-wide compilation CD Lounge Masters Vibes vol. 12.
Ashes and Dreams’ 2016 release, Non-Stop Chillout Pop vol. 1 and 2 includes a mix of serene, dreamy tracks and uplifting, soulful tunes, that are seamlessly linked by Lisa's warm, hypnotic alto voice and Liv's distinctive guitar work and electronic production. Their latest track Gonna Work Out has been remixed by 18 international DJs (and counting) from Austria to Cuba to Australia.
This year sees a bright future for Ashes and Dreams, who are hosting Dream House Beats’ new deep house/indie-dance podcast, The Dream House, and working towards their upcoming 2017 CD release, Havana. Keep an eye on the festival circuit for these upcoming artists who look forward to spreading their chillout vibes across the globe.
