Our regular fave Isabelle Fries dropped a “less regular” single. His beautiful new song Just a Dream reminds us of who we are, and who we have always wanted to be.
We always laugh like a little kid on Christmas morning when we know a new song Isabelle Fries. And like the little child on Christmas morning sitting by the fire, we washed down the new path.
Just a Dream Started with some interesting guitar strings that were new but had a familiar quality that made us love his music. This song has all the bad musical qualities of Isabelle that we all love. Weven though we felt a slight change in sound quality that reminded us Taylor Swiftalbum ni Folklore and even some vibe of Lumineers. It’s a complete bleed of Isabelle’s already healthy style.
In this latest jam, all the elements are in place: nostalgic quality of his soundtrack and his catchy inviting voice. But now there is a new element that we have never heard from him before. Being Latin we WANTED a good reference to Spain and we loved the Spanish castañuelas (castanets) that took us on the Spanish vacation we were about to take. We thought adding a Spanish / Latin percussion to his beat was a good addition to his sound. We can only consider him a musician Rob Chiarelli related to this new selection of music. In this song we are also put on a different range of his vocals that we have never heard before. Isabelle is definitely opening up her cozy place here. We read that Isabelle was still fluent in Spanish. Our love!
Just a Dream a song about hope and perseverance. Above all, we all question what new dreams should be. We live in a new world where we are not only creating new dreams, but new avenues to achieve them. In her lyrics: “New life, new life, I’m getting closer,” Isabelle gives us a crescendo emotion of her height in achieving her aspirations.
Isabelle is a true humanity at heart. He performed with more than 44,000 people at the Annual iKnow HIV Awcious Concert Series in Uganda with The Global Livingston Institute. Isabelle is responsible for implementing academic, music, and sports programs for them. He also started a water safety program for the community. Since he is a longtime competition swimmer, water safety is something he loves. Like we said before, we like how altruistic Isabelle is. We look forward to his ongoing path of professional growth as well. We think sometimes the music industry can have a lot of barriers that don’t have to be “most inspiring.” Perhaps for someone like Isabelle it could be like this that she can make a lot of difference by pursuing her causes for charity in a place like Uganda. However, make no mistake that if you really want to help the world in the BIGGEST way possible, it is done by reaching your potential. In our first writing about Isabelle we reflected on how “The New Triple Threat”: Returning, Teaching and Singing. Make sure Isabelle checks all the boxes.
He will change the lives of millions without doubting his talent and inspiration. Isabelle’s star power is undeniable, and if she continues it … we’ll definitely see her platinum record on our wall (along with Lady GaGa and Amy Winehouse).
In many ways Isabelle Fries is just a dream… like the song. We’re all dreamers really and that’s why we can all gravate to his music. We need songs like this to keep us going and remind us that we are not alone in pursuing our dreams. It was a pleasure to remember the loud listening and singing with Isabelle. And by the way, commiserate can also be a beautiful thing, if we do it in our dreams, and now we have Isabelle to show us how.
