Michael Christopher climbs into a Winnebago crammed with gear and perches himself on top of an amp.
“Mike’s all like ‘oh I’m little so I have to sit on top of shit,” Travis Hildenbrand, Christopher’s band mate, jokes.
The Winnebago, now full of Collective Dreams members- singer Christopher and drummer Hildenbrand along with bassist Ben Rodriguez and guitarists Caleb Barber and Albert Salinas- represents much about how the band came together and even has a song named after it.
Collective Dreams entire EP, Passages is available for free download here! Download, listen and enjoy. Breathing in Someone Else's Air is highly recommended. Look for a feature on them here on the Local Beat towards the end of the month.
The Darius Rucker song "Alright" blasts through the speakers of Michael Littlefield's laptop. The twang infested country song echoes on the small porch of Littlefield's house in a suburban neighborhood.
"We HAVE to cover this song," Littlefield says and picks back up singing where he left off. His band mates- singer and rhythm guitarist Noah Cox, Guitarist Jorge Codina and bassist Mikey Hildebrand- just laugh. The chemistry between the guys in Now or Never! is tangible.
