SONG PICK: Cate von Csoke – Dream Around

“Dream Around” is an easy suggestion when listening to the latest song of Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Cate von Csoke.

Cate cites the desert of North America and her native Australia as inspiration and it is not hard to imagine her playing this song in an abandoned mission building somewhere in the West.
