BABIES DREAM BIG is the self-produced solo debut from Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, Alan Wilkis. The album is an ambitious exercise in stylistic cross-pollination, paying homage to the soul, R&B, classic rock, and electronic music of the 60’s - 80’s.
Conceived and recorded mostly in his home studio over the course of a year, BDB seamlessly blends together acoustic and electronic textures with a little white-boy soul and slick production, taking listeners on an epic journey from the earholes straight into the heart.
BDB grew out of a genuine love for the pop music of the past. This simple fascination quickly ballooned into full-blown obsession and a mission to boil those pop classics down to their core elements: the syrupy vocals of Stevie Wonder, the smoothness of Hall & Oates, arena-sized Boston guitar solos, Kraftwerk electronics, and Beach Boys harmony. Alan set out to find his own voice by weaving these essential but seemingly disparate raw ingredients together into unique new forms.
After a little help from a few talented friends, Eric Biondo (Antibalas/Beyondo/TV on the Radio) and Jason Treuting (So Percussion), Alan is now ready to present to you, BABIES DREAM BIG, 12 tracks of booty-wiggling, feel-good, turn-that-upside-down-smile-rightside-up new music!
