Half Dream

Half Dream is an indie rock band based in Austin, TX and is comprised of Paige Renée Berry (guitar, vocals), Laine Higgins (lead guitar), West Armstrong (drums) and John Heatherington (interim bass). Formed in 2018, Half Dream began with the name and songs of Paige Renée Berry and changed their moniker to reflect the ethereal and collaborative nature of the sound. Paige Berry’s songwriting explores identity, overcoming trauma, & moving past fear. Floating melodies find punch in driving hooks that highlight vocal subtleties, landing somewhere between dream and tenuous reality. The band’s debut EP was self-released October 23rd, 2020 with a sophomore full-length album slated for Summer 2023.
