The daydream club just


The Daydream Club are an English multi-genre music duo formed in 2010 by husband and wife Adam and Paula Pickering. The band says they have one goal – to make music they're proud of. They have built a strong, loyal fan base without the luxury of traditional forms of financing, promotion or backing. To date all material has been self-released through their own label, Poco Poco Records. They have featured on BBC, Burberry, Acoustic Magazine, Rolling Stone, Level Films, the Hype Machine's most influential music blogs, and Spotify, with over 30 million streams.
Adam, a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer, was formerly a session musician, whilst Paula was a professional dancer. The Consequence of Sound journalist, Tony Hardy, opined that "Together, they appear to have found their true milieu in The Daydream Club".

History

The Daydream Club wwwrightchordmusiccoukwpwpcontentuploads20

The pair first met in January 2005 on a site-specific arts project in a derelict tobacco factory in Liverpool. The project was in conjunction with the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) where they both studied. Throughout their studies and after graduating they continued to collaborate on various projects and pursued careers in their respective fields.

Adam Pickering, a multi-instrumentalist (keys, drums, guitar, bass, percussion, melodica) and veteran of the band circuit, has supported the likes of Sam Sparro, The Wombats, Sneaky Sound System, Tinchy Stryder, DJ Yoda and Felix B from Basement Jaxx.

Paula Walker began her career as a professional dancer touring internationally with hit percussion show 'Noise Ensemble', headlining Henley Festival and working with Luc Petit (former Director of Cirque Du Soleil). In 2010 Paula joined Adam Pickering and formed The Daydream Club.
