Amelia’s Dream is a NYC based indie band consisting of singer/songwriter Amelia S. Gewirtz and musician/songwriter/producer Harold
The group’s blend of folk-pop and electronica debuted in 1996 with Here in the Rage, and consistent gigs at clubs like the Mercury Lounge, the Knitting Factory, and the Bitter End and appearances at events like the NYC Marathon and AIDS Walk ’99 earned them a strong local following. Their second album, Love Tattoo, was released in 1999 on Ripe & Ready Records, and their third album Unravel: Recorded Live at the Magic Shop was released in 2005. In 2007, the duo became parents and their fourth album is a double CD entitled No More Time under the name Parents With Angst. With hints of folk rock and family-inspired tunes, the songs on Parents with Angst creates an undeniable connection with listeners.
The music of Amelia’s Dream has been featured in Disney films, TV shows and on Lifetime Network. A much anticipated fifth Amelias Dream album is in the works.
