What If This Dream Is All We Have? is a musical project from the songwriting pages of Jason Soloduik. Having been a part of the Ontario music scene for 10 years, 24-year-old Soloduik knows the struggles and longings of his audience and hopes his music will get listeners searching themselves and getting excited about their lives.
After releasing and touring his debut record in 2006, singer/songwriter Soloduik was swept away on a roller coaster of emotions and life experiences. Playing in a couple bands and spending his days in college just wasn't enough, so, for inspiration, Soloduik flew away to Europe. Soloduik explains: "It was a crazy year! I had a lot to reflect on and write about. When I came back from Europe the record was pretty much written and I went back into the studio to record it."
Recorded at Sundown Studios in Guelph, ON with friend Jordan Valeriote in the producer's chair , "Look Outside Your Window" is not only a step up in terms of production value but also in terms of melodic maturity and lyrical authority. "This was the first time I stepped out of my comfort zone during the recording process and it was a great decision," explains Soloduik. "I didn't hold anything back. We tried everything and there were no limitations. And I think that comes out in the record!"
It certainly does.
"What If This Dream Is All We Have?" is back in a big way with 9 new and refreshing pop-rock/indie songs. While listeners will enjoy hearing the songwriting influences of Blind Melon, Angels and Airwaves and Anberlin, "What If This Dream Is All We Have" has definitely crafted a unique sound for itself. From the haunting honesty of "This Isn't Personal, It Is What It Is" to the bursting excitement of "The Road", it's clear that Soloduik has poured every shred of himself into this project.
"This record is definitely the record I've always wanted to write since getting into music," says Soloduik. "'Look Outside Your Window' means to look past the norms of life and discover yourself, your surroundings and what life is really about. It's getting excited about who you are, looking past all your hurts and moving forward without compromise."
Having already enjoyed radio airplay across Canada with his first record and sold countless records to his dedicated fans, Soloduik has his sights set even higher this time around, but not in the traditional sense: "'What If This Dream Is All We Have?'" is about love! It's being vulnerable and honest and sharing your heart. Its faith based and not religious. We're all looking for hope and we're all looking for something real!"
What if this dream is all we have? You'll find a dream is more than enough.
