dream catcher is the solo project of John Rech, the veteran singer of Luxembourg's very own 90's icons "T42". Charismatic and passionate, the singer and awarded comic book author, John Rech is a real music all-rounder, whose love and dedication has recently seen him rewarded with the medal of cultural merit.
Sir John? No way, he’s far too enthusiastic and lighthearted to take off. And seeing him perform live with his long time friends Christof Brill on guitar and Wolfgang "wild fiddler" Wehner would jeopardize any knighthood… At festivals, they’re joined on stage by Eric Falchero (piano/accordion), Claude Zeimes (bass) & Steve Krippler (drums).
Seeing the band’s great showmanship on stage, one is gripped by their sensitivity, energy, virtuosity... and humor. Their Celtic-Pop sparks spread like wildfire and generate a flame of enthusiasm. Which is probably why they’ve been invited to share the stage with stars like Sting, Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson, Alanis Morrisette, Counting Crows, The Paperboys, Train, Puggy and many more.
From their debut EP "happy in my treehouse" in 1998 to the 2015 sonic comic "Music, films & dreams", dream catcher has embarked on many musical and creative journeys, thus resulting in captivating collaborations such as with Cambridge based singer-songwriter Ezio, the new rising Jazz star Pascal Schumacher or Irish Celtic Folk wizards Beoga… Their daring voyages are best reflected in their latest sonic comics (= comic book & cd), where John Rech & illustrator Andy Genen have created a graphic universe around their songs and their musical experiences. After the release of their successful new single "nanana" & their 3rd sonic comic "Music, films & dreams", the band are currently working on their new album ‘Vagabonds’ due to be released this summer.
dream catcher’s music navigates between the different cultures anchored in their native Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg: from English Celtic Pop to French Chanson, from German virtuosity to Luxembourgish Rock. All over the world: USA, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Poland…
They might not change the course of music history, but they sure as hell are a great band to spend an evening with. So forget about the world for a while and let the musical sunbeams of dream catcher into your hearts and minds.
