Harlem-based Caleb Hawley is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who PopDust proclaimed “is the pop star pop music has done nothing to deserve, but desperately needs”. Today, Hawley shared his latest song Tell Me What it’s Like to Have a Dream Come True, a self-produced throwback to the classic mid-tempo ballads of the ’80s that winds through gritty R&B, raunchy rock ‘n’ roll, and pop.
Discussing the track, Caleb said, “The lyrics are some of the questions that run through my head when I witness my friends seemingly break through barriers, reaching the heights I’ve long pursued, but have yet to realize. I have an inkling that these dreams are an illusion, and are unlikely to bring the peace of mind I’m hoping for. Still can’t hurt to ask.”
With 5 full-length albums out to date, Caleb’s production is being refined with every record, while bringing the listener on a rollercoaster of 80’s vibes and surprising emotional layers.
