Merry Ellen Kirk announces upcoming self-released album We Are the Dreamers out October 23, 2015. The emotional elasticity Merry Ellen Kirk carries in her music connects with audiences on a primal level with perceptions and associations both tangible and dream-like.

In We Are the Dreamers there’s a sense Kirk is passing through the stages of intense passion and heart-stopping pain that accompany every great love story.  Fiery, intimate harmonies and intricate arrangements melt into euphoric melodies with gentle restraint. The album sways between the dichotomy of fairytale romance and crippling pain brought on by a disillusioned dream.

About Merry Ellen Kirk
Having spent her early years in Mongolia—her parents were missionaries—Merry Ellen Kirk developed a diverse awareness of the world, and of what music can be when experienced through a different cultural lens. As a child, she began making up little ditties and developed an inescapable desire to create music; after a time, when her family returned home and settled down in Nashville, she came to realize that writing and performing music would have to be a large part of her future. Described by Kirk as sitting “somewhere between Christina Perri & Ingrid Michaelson,” her music has slowly evolved into her own full of bright emotional releases to more dark and gritty dream-like ballads.

Praise for Merry Ellen Kirk
“It’s a fantastical, whimsical accompaniment to the folksy dream-pop offering.”  —Exclaim

“Charming melodies and a haunting yet familiar vocal.” —Drunken Werewolf

‘”Lovers and Liars”‘ is much more in the vein of Florence and The Machine or A Fine Frenzy than previous songs. The hazy, dreamy vibe of Firefly Garden-era tracks like “Field of Dreams” or “Masquerade” has been mixed with poppier elements and a strong chorus, stirring emotions not found in her previous work.” —Jess Marsh- In Your Speakers
