Songs of Dreams was created by Sackjo22, through collaboration with the international music community of ccMixter. The album starts with a jazz track, ends with a house track, and includes some experimental ambient chill, a touch of tribal, and a bit of singer-songwriter pop in between. Infused with vocal harmonies and featuring the inimitable guitar stylings of Haskel Joseph throughout, SackJo22's poetic lyrics encourage the listener to embody their experience in support of healing and transformation.
"I am so grateful to the ccMixter community," SackJo22 shares. "Having free access to source material created by so many talented artists helped me find my voice as a producer of sound and song. Remixing is a beautiful way for our creative sparks to come together anew -- it's a transformative process, particularly when the outcome allows us to experience ourselves from a different perspective."

As one of ccMixter's most remixed artists, her songwriting, poetry and musicianship is woven throughout the entire music library. And still, with all of these gifts she gives us, perhaps her most uniquely beautiful contribution is her VOICE."
