A sonic journey baselined by reggae beats, Dreamer at turns celebrates the bold, joyful, and even messy impulses that drive the female experience. ''This album is about raw honesty,'' Hirie says. ''I feel like I was braver with exploring my emotional state and how that swings back and forth‚Äîallowing myself to be brutally honest.''
''With Dreamer, Hirie didn‚Äôt inch out of her comfort zone, she burst out of it. That leap of faith has had an indelible impact on her. ''There comes a point when you don‚Äôt really have anything left to lose,'' she adds. ''It‚Äôs one thing my dad always told me: ‚ÄòYou only get out of life what you put into it.‚Äô'' ''
