ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Dream Awhile" was written as a partner song to Del's other recent single release "If You Want To" ... Both songs capture what his parents taught him and how they inspired him and more, even when he was young. So Del wrote "‘Dream Awhile" to share things he learned while growing up. The lyrics reach beyond the words. His parents had not finished high school but their leadership led him to the University of California at Berkeley and a top college degree. His Mother went back to high school when Del went to Berkeley, prior to that she had only an eight grade education. Later, Del attended her High School Graduation and listened to her speech as the Class' Valedictorian. Top of her class and in Cap & Gown for the ceremony.

The song "Dream Awhile" is being released in three versions: The Vocal version, with lyrics; the Story version, telling the Story Behind The Song; and, The Band's Music version with a Kenny G styled band arrangement featuring the All-Star cast of talented musicians known as the LisZenUp HouzeBand® … a group whose participants have had credits which include recording and/or touring with and for … Diana Ross, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Brown, George Benson, Frank Zappa, Dobbie Brothers, Air Supply, Smokey Robinson … to name a few.

"‘Dream Awhile" was written, arranged, and produced by 26-year Grammy voting veteran Del Henry, who is also a 26 year member of the Grammy’s elite P&E Wing (Producers & Engineers Wing).

A short background: Del started his music studies in the 4th Grade, played in the High School Band when he was in the 8th Grade, made the California State Honor Band in both his Sophomore and Junior years, played in a Rock Band at High School and Local Dances for three years starting when he was 15, signed a recording contract with the same label as the Credence Clearwater Revival when he was in college, promoted The Doors first SF Bay Area concert when he was 22 (7000 seat sell out), and started writing songs when he was 16, and recorded an album including one of his songs (and several songs he co-wrote) while in college at the University of California at Berkeley. To say he has a love for music would be an understatement. Still his premiere passion.
