ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Athena Reich's 5th CD, LITTLE GIRL DREAMS, is produced by multiple Grammy/Emmy winner Cynthia Daniels (Melissa Etheridge, Chaka Khan etc). LITTLE GIRL DREAMS marks Athena’s coming into her own as a mature, articulate, reflective, dynamic original artist that can be compared to Annie Lennox’s “Diva”, Regina Spektor’s “Begin to Hope”, Adele's "21" and Sara Bareilles's "Little Voice".

ABOUT LITTLE GIRL DREAMS

LITTLE GIRL DREAMS features numerous hit singles, including:

1. Love is Love; an upbeat unconventional love song celebrating the complexity within relationships. “The issues surrounding gay marriage are absurd because no one – not one of us holds the answers to the question of love. The issue is not who you love”, says Athena, “it’s how you love.”

2. Little Girl Dreams is about following your dreams no matter what obstacles you must overcome, from a ban on gay marriage to an ex who tries to break your heart. No one and nothing can stop the power of those little girl (and boy) dreams.

3. The Logical Song is a cover of the 1979 Supertramp hit by Roger Hodgson. Athena revives this internationally beloved, almost forgotten, anthem rebelling against society’s pressure to conform. Athena’s version stays true to the original, while adding contemporary beats, and sultry, soulful vocals.

Little Girl Dreams features a string quartet (arrangements by Greg Pliska of Carly Simon & Hem), gorgeous electronic grooves, and subtle instrumentation that lets Athena’s amazing vocal and songwriting talents shine through without any distraction. Each song on Little Girl Dreams tells a story in a most surprising, beautiful, and delicate manner.

Underexposed Intriguing Indie Upstart Athena Reich

Her energy and comedic talent is infectious
To witness the grace and electricity of an Athena Reich show is an experience.. In her shows, Athena expertly intertwines stand up comedy and storytelling into her energetic performances. In one show, you'll laugh and cry and, at the end of the night, wish you could take her home with you. Her energy and comedic talent is infectious...
