What You May Dream

Cookbook Cover

Ryan Kershaw wrote a perfect lullaby for the first ever ICBC assignment years ago and it fills my heart with such joy.


The lyrics lull you out of your worries and into a sweet sweet sleep. I wanted the song to start a little jarring and progress into a dreamscape. Nick and I worked together on this cover.


Darlin’ lay your head down.

Soon the sun will rise and,

all that you can’t see

will show itself in the daylight.


Off in to what you may dream now.

Close your tired eyes now.

Off in to what you may dream,

off in to sleep.

Off in to your dreams.

Looking for feedback on

This is so beautiful Nicole. I agree with @@alechutsonabout the Sylvan Esso vibe. Your voice has always reminded me of hers – but it’s also the overall composition like you said, how it starts stark and then becomes celebratory – reminds me of the way “Coffee” progresses.

This is beautiful, Nicole! It makes me happy to hear this song again, in its new form. Possibly fun fact – I came up with the melody that inspired Ryan using words from the aria “Che Gelida Manina” by Giacomo Puccini.

This is so, so good Nicole. Feeling very happy and honored that this version exists. Also shout-out to @@Sam Pearce whose melody was an inspiration for my version!

Damn, what a tune. Really enjoyed your subdued vocals, very calming– you gotta lend your voice more often!
