Singer, songwriter and producer Jozem presents his exquisite, entirely self-produced debut album, it came to me in a dream. Utterly haunting, completely chill-inducing and filled with layer upon layer of texture, vivid imagery and soul stirring soundscapes, it came to me in a dream, is the true definition of alternative RnB.
Each release Jozem shares is intrinsically tied to his core being, representing a tiny insight to not only who he is as an artist but also uncovers direct details of his unique human experience. Every offering an opportunity, which Jozem grasps with both hands as he undeniably shares a little piece of his soul with his audience, marking a truly rare and inspiring gift.
Featuring 5 previously released singles ‘Breath’ , ‘Dreams’, ‘Water Me’, ‘Goderich’ and ‘Youth’, Jozem perfectly balances the album with 5 unreleased slices of smoothness ‘ Möbius’, ‘Lunar’, ‘Danforth’ ‘The Risk’ and the albums single ‘Foreign’ which help complete the project in its entirety. Put simply, it came to in a dream is a spiritual and healing journey in sonic form.
Describing the single ‘Foreign’, Jozem poignantly shares,
“In life, with all its noise and distractions, it is so easy to just keep going with the flow that you lose sight of your purpose and forget how you got to where you are.
Foreign is about being lost and getting to a juncture where you are forced to face yourself and the person you have become. You start questioning who you are and question the relationships with the people who you love. Foreign is about bravely sitting in those moments of uncertainty, letting yourself question the things that you’ve been conditioned into believing about yourself, who you should be, and how you present to the world.
For me, it is often in my sleepless nights where I am alone and cannot hide where I have these conversations with myself and am forced to reckon with the demons that haunt me. Ultimately it is in these moments where you really can face your truth and strive to align your being and your actions with who you truly are and want to be.”
