About Power Of Dreams

Power of Dreams were formed in Dublin in 1989 by songwriter Craig Walker. The band's debut ep "A Little Piece of God" was voted Single of The Week in UK music weeklies Melody Maker and Sounds, which led to them signing to Polydor.

Their first album, "Immigrants, Emigrants and Me", received glowing reviews worldwide with Craig Walker garnering praise for a lyrical maturity beyond his 18 years and the band’s spiky indie pop assault winning fans among press and public alike.

Power of Dreams embarked on a global tour, taking in more than 20 countries in the space of a year, including Japan and the US. Live, the band were hailed for their blistering sonic attack and soaring melodies.

Over the next four years, they released a further three albums and continued to play shows worldwide, including four return visits to Japan. However, commercial success never quite matched the level of critical acclaim achieved and so the four members went their separate ways in 1995.

2010 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of that landmark debut album "Immigrants, Emigrants and Me" and to mark the occasion, the band have been asked to reform for a series of live shows.
