Morpheus Dreaming

Morpheus is the Greek god of dreams. He shaped and influenced the dreams of gods, heroes, kings, and mortals. The derivative of his name is also the name of a medicinal treatment that relieves pain and yet is incredibly addictive.  

We are a Morphine tribute band in Colorado. Enchanted, beguiled, and inspired by the 'low-rock' songs of the 1990s alternative rock band Morphine, we strive to bring that sonic experience to you. 

Morpheus Dreaming is a reverie from a trio of seasoned musicians who have come together to bring these sounds into musical wakefulness. Brian, Doug and Tim combine decades of jazz, blues and rock experiences into a sound that blurs all three genres into one. 

 We call ourselves "Morpheus Dreaming - a Tribute to Morphine and Beyond". The "and beyond" means we also play other rock and pop covers in a 'low-rock' style. Want to hear how Black Sabbath's Paranoid or Billy Idol's Rebel Yell or Tom Petty's Runnin' Down a Dream can sound with sax, slide bass, and drums? That's the dream state Morpheus Dreaming plays in.  

The music of Morpheus Dreaming is a unique cocktail of baritone sax, 2-string slide bass, drums, and low vocals. A jazzy, bluesy, alternative rock, beat sound. A film noir vision made for your ears. It is where the three of us like to dream. Come dream with us.
