Dream Jefferson

This is a band that has not only found their stride, they have developed their strut. 

Dream Jefferson is a new wave electro-hip hop group from Toronto, Ont.

Beginning as a duo, rapper/singer Owel Five and rapper/producer Corboe released their debut Sasquatch Bury Their Dead. Their sound was an undeniable party-rap, an amalgamation of electro-lo-fi hip hop with rapid fire lyricism. With the addition of guitarist Ian Strasbourg and vocalist Tovah Fine, their sound and song-writing matured with the release of Punch Perm. The result was a lusher, textured instrumentation accompanying the driving beats and songs maturing out of party tracks.

With their new release, Manchester Blue, Dream Jefferson furthers their evolution. Songs of love, loss, pain and uncertainty are delivered with cocky confidence and rapid fire delivery over compositions of driving lo-fi electro and ’80s new wave expand into soaring crescendos. This is a band that has not only found their stride, they have developed their strut.

Dream Jefferson have played Canadian Music Week the past three years and played North By North East (NXNE) in 2011 and 2012. If you haven’t seen Dream Jefferson live, you don’t know the meaning of “sweat through your shirt.”

They were recently featured in’s “Fantasy Covers Podcast,” where they covered Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m Goin’ Down.”
