This is Katie Glassman's second swing album.  What makes this one different?  Dream A Little Dream was made and constructed with the collaboration of her band Snapshot.  The band has been touring and performing regionally ever since the 2012 release of Snapshot and this album represents the future of where the band would like to go.....

There has been an incredible team of people in the making of "Dream A Little Dream."  Now, its time to pay them all!  Your contributions will help pay for: Recording, photos, buying the mechanical licenses for the tunes, publicity and mastering.  Everyone has been so very generous with their time and effort.  Special thanks to John Macy, Kit Hedman, Anna Davis, Randy Leroy, Eric Moon, Charlie Mertens, Greg Schochet and Doran Handman!!!

This 11 song record displays exquisite musicianship from Eric Moon - accordion, piano and vocals, Greg Schochet - guitar and Charlie Mertens - bass and vocals.  Katie Glassman is inspired to play with such a wonderful band as she sings and fiddles all throughout the record.  The choice of tunes range from oldtime western swing covers to originals by Katie, Eric and Greg.  This album presents Western swing in an authentic style with contemporary color.  You will really love the unique blend of three part vocal harmonies, as well as contributions from guest artists John Macy (steel) and Tim O'brien (vocal harmonies).  

Katie Glassman and Snapshot is asking for your financial support to release Dream A Little Dream in February 2014. 

Risks and challenges

The project has been completed and just purely needs to be paid for. People have relied upon our good word and trust that everything will work out. The plan is to release it in February 2014. Our publicity campaign will help us gain good press, recognition, radio play and hopefully further our career on a national and international level. Your financial help will make this possible. However, there can be many set backs along the way. We are hoping that the reviews are good, the mail is swift, the weather on the day of our release show is agreeable and the funds come through to call it all complete.
