about

On 'Big Dream Baby,' the Charlotte, North Carolina-based Big Bus Dream explores emotional disintegration and redemption. In singer-songwriter Mike Shannon’s eyes, we are trying and failing at life, and finding a sort of unimagined grace in the wisdom it brings. As he sings in “C’mon & Run,” the album’s anthemic closer, “you better have a big dream, baby / ’cause dreamers built this place / never think you’re it and the others are not / ’cause hatred has an ugly face.” The big dream, to Shannon, is a sort of battered salvation.

From “Wonderland,” a plain-spoken account of a family torn apart, to “Fried,” a tuneful lament of time’s march, to “Mary’s Spoken,” the acceptance of an inevitable end, Big Bus Dream perseveres. We are not defined by our setbacks, Shannon says, but they are always there. The big dream fuels and sustains us.
