UK-based singer, songwriter, and producer Ben Woodward will have you floating on Cloud 9 while listening to his breathtaking new track called “All a Dream.”
Since 2013, Woodward has become a YouTube sensation with his weekly acoustic covers of popular songs by artists such as Justin Bieber and The Chainsmokers. The artist has also proven that his own songwriting work is just as compelling as his covers with his monthly releases of original content. And “All a Dream” is no exception!
Combining acoustic guitar, classical instruments, and electronic elements, Woodward’s music juxtaposes old and new musical techniques to form a one-of-a-kind sound. “All a Dream” is a constellation of guitar riffs, drumbeats, and bursts of sparkling synths interspersed with Woodward’s soaring vocals. Like any good romance story, Woodward’s lyrics draw you into his fantasy date night complete with a movie and slow dancing in the moonlight. This blissfully perfect vision is cut through with the harsh reality that the song title suggests, and we’re left pining for this dream to come to fruition.
Woodward takes this bittersweet love song to new heights with his lush layers of echoing instrumentals and his enchanting songwriting. If you’re looking for an escapist fantasy about now, you’re first stop should definitely be Ben Woodward’s “All a Dream.”
