Press Release: "In Your Dreams" Stevie Nicks Documentary Scheduled For Exclusive North American Release

"In Your Dreams" Stevie Nicks Documentary In Theatres - April 2nd - ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Intimate Portrait of Grammy Award Winning Artist and Member of Legendary Rock Band Fleetwood Mac as She Creates Album with Dave Stewart

Film Featured at SXSW Film Festival on March 14th in Austin, Texas with Media Q&A Red Carpet

Special Screening at Famed TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) on April 15th with Nicks Including Q&A

NEW YORK, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the tremendous positive response to the Stevie Nicks documentary "In Your Dreams", an intimate portrait of one of rock's most enduring and legendary artists, at the Hamptons International Film Festival and the Mill Valley Film Festival, this up close portrayal of Nicks recording her critically acclaimed "In Your Dreams" CD in collaboration with Dave Stewart is now scheduled to screen in over 50 theaters across North America on April 2nd. Tickets will be available on once they go on sale. A current schedule of cities and theaters follows this release, with more cities to be added.

The "In Your Dreams" film is being distributed by Abamorama. Co-produced and co-directed by former Eurythmic Dave Stewart, "In Your Dreams" is a portrait of the elusive Nicks as she and Stewart embark on a musical journey to write and record the critically acclaimed album "In Your Dreams."  Nicks called this "the greatest year of my life" and felt compelled to share the joyful experience that she terms "the day the circus came to town" with her fans.  The record was co-written by Nicks and Stewart and produced by Stewart and Glen Ballard. Watch the trailer at 

Nicks, one of the lead singers and emotional catalyst for Fleetwood Mac, is embarking on a world tour with them beginning April 4th in Columbus Ohio.  A multi Grammy Award winning artist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Nicks allowed cameras inside her magical old mansion high atop the hills of LA with a wild cast of musicians and friends.  The inner life of the legendary Nicks has by her design long been kept at a distance from the public. We learn in "Dreams" that her world features, costume parties, elaborate dinner feasts, tap dancing, fantasy creations and revealing songwriting and recording sessions all of which are captured on film. Also cameos by Edgar Allan Poe, Mick Fleetwood, Reese Witherspoon, a massive white stallion in the backyard, owls and naturally a few vampires who appear in several "home movie" style music videos.

Along with tracking the Nicks/Stewart creative partnership, "In Your Dreams" has plenty of other cinematic payoffs including rare never before seen personal scrapbook stills from Nicks' childhood and family life, and a wealth of candid backstage and performance shots taken over the last 35 years. The documentary was produced by Dave Stewart's production company, Weapons of Mass Entertainment.

Nicks, who has sold millions of records as a solo artist and writer of such iconic songs as "Landslide," "Gold Dust Woman" and "Edge of 17," is regularly cited by stars as diverse as Taylor Swift, Kid Rock, Courtney Love, Sheryl Crow, The Dixie Chicks and John Mayer as an iconic favorite and heroine and is a continuous inspiration to the world's top fashion designers.

"She is really real. It doesn't matter if she is singing in the make-up room or in the middle of a TV interview.  She is who she is, and she doesn't change," commented Stewart.

"This is our baby and we give her lovingly into your dreams.  From our tribe to yours," concluded Nicks.

The Chain Gang... When the rain washed them clean, our ears knew

The Road to Rumours: 35 Years On…
Acoustic Magazine - February, 2013

Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is an album heard in the homes, cars and computers of more than 40 million people. To mark its 35th anniversary, this landmark album is being re-released with a package of demos and studio out-takes. Andy Hughes looks back at his own personal discovery of this iconic recording, and assesses its enduring appeal.

Any music collector remembers the time they first heard a song that led to an album purchase that still gives value for money decades later. I recall with complete clarity Bob Harris’s voice on The Old Grey Whistle Test as he introduced the first playing of ‘The Chain’. The next day the album was released, I was in my local record shop buying the album – it remains one of the most played albums I own.

Back in the 1970s, before the advent of the internet, album purchases were an event. You bought your album, took it home, took it out of its sleeve, put it on the turntable, and sat and paid attention as it played. There was never the notion of doing anything else but listening and absorbing the music, and music was made with that attitude in mind. I played ‘The Chain’ over and over again, captivated by the sound of Stevie Nicks’ voice and the guitar interplay that Lindsey Buckingham used to enhance its ethereal appeal. From there, I moved onto ‘Gold Dust Woman’, with a similar structure of multi-tracked acoustic guitar, sparse percussion, minor chords, and that ghostly voice. Another story of a broken heart delivered with that Fleetwood Mac trademark of authenticity – this was music made by people who knew of what they sang and played. And know it they did, all of them, with recent and raw experiences of heartbreak, betrayal and loss. The problem for the band was not that they brought their external traumas into the studio and wrote and sang about them surrounded by the unique comfort and support that a band atmosphere offers. The opposite applied – the band were each other’s heartbreakers, betrayers, life-shatterers, and as Christine McVie memorably pointed out at the time – “Most people go to work for a rest from the pressure and strain of a breakup, we went to work with the people who were causing ours, and our work was to sing and play about it all day every day.”

This is the thread that runs through Rumours – it is that in-built sense of naked emotion that runs through the singing and playing that reaches out to generations of music fans. To place its longevity in perspective – you have to be 35-years-old to have been alive when these songs were written and recorded. It’s that timeless feel for love and loss that makes Rumours one of the greatest albums about romance and loneliness that has ever been made.
