Self described “star gazers and forest dwellers” Day & Dream creates music that sounds like your favorite warm fuzzy blanket. Long time artists, musicians & singer/songwriters, Peter Frizzante & Abby Amaya, initially met in NYC, but didn't start their indie-rock dreampop shoegaze band until they moved to Asheville, North Carolina. Abby’s roots are in California 60s coastal pop, while Peter’s is post-punk, indie-rock. Working together, the now husband-wife team showcase their admiration for sun-soaked sonic landscapes, lo-fi lounge, neo-psychedelia, jangly guitars, jazz tones, & melodic pop structures. Reverb soaked & layered with soft whispery vocals, the result is an energetic & memorable reverie.  Peter, the morning person, & Abby, the night owl -- their band name is a nod to their opposite sleep schedules. The pair is often writing music or lyrics at home inbetween work & daily chores, finding inspiration in the human condition & the pain and joy of life. Their first full length album, “With Every Breath You Die” was recorded at Standard Electric in Atlanta & released Feb 2019. Their second album, "The Art of Remembering" released in Feb 2022 via Lilystars (ADA, Warner Music).
