Awake But Dreaming: Opus I sees Tokio Myers at his most vulnerable, honest and achingly emotional yet. Channeling his journey into sobriety, fatherhood and the loss of his father, the new album marks a huge personal milestone for Tokio and is testament not only to his artistry, but also to the person that he is today.

Becoming a father was the key inspiration behind the creation of his new album, which he has dedicated to his three-year-old daughter, Malaya. Both of their hands can be seen caressing piano keys on the album cover. The opening intro ‘Beautiful Little Angel’ features voice clips of Tokio speaking with Malaya, setting the tone for the heart and passion that he has devoted to the album. What follows are a multitude of magical musical pieces, including several original compositions and special renditions of traditional classics, that are goosebump inducingly powerful, transcendental and therapeutic.

Awake But Dreaming: Opus I is the culmination of Tokio’s pursuits both in music and in life over the last seven years. With depths of pain and vulnerability balanced out by undertones of hope and joy, the album would also not exist if it weren’t for Tokio’s daughter Malaya - the beating heart behind every note.

Tokio says: “I wanted to explore creating a record that would allow myself to tap into other existing dimensions not yet explored or yet discovered - like a guided meditation using only the piano. We follow each note as it leads us to our very own personal gateway / portal, allowing us to dive into our conscious and unconscious state of being. We begin entering the state of being awake but dreaming - once there, this is the place where our journey truly begins - emotive, therapeutic and like a great friend, this album will always be there for you when you need it.
