The Stevie Nicks documentary “In Your Dreams,” an intimate portrait of one of rock’s most enduring and legendary artists, an up-close portrayal of Nicks recording her critically acclaimed In Your Dreams CD in collaboration with Dave Stewart, is now scheduled to screen on over 50 theaters across North America on April 2. Tickets will be available on www.inyourdreamsmovie.com.
Co-produced and co-directed by former Eurythmic Dave Stewart, “In Your Dreams” is a portrait of the elusive Nicks as she and Stewart embark on a musical journey to write and record the critically acclaimed album In Your Dreams.
Nicks called this “the greatest year of my life” and felt compelled to share the joyful experience that she terms “the day the circus came to town” with her fans. The record was co-written by Nicks and Stewart and produced by Stewart and Glen Ballard. Watch the trailer at www.inyourdreamsmovie.com
Nicks, one of the lead singers and emotional catalyst for Fleetwood Mac, is embarking on a world tour with them beginning April 4 in Columbus Ohio. A multi-Grammy Award-winning artist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Nicks allowed cameras inside her magical old mansion high atop the hills of LA with a wild cast of musicians and friends. The inner life of the legendary Nicks has by her design long been kept at a distance from the public. We learn in “Dreams” that her world features, costume parties, elaborate dinner feasts, tap dancing, fantasy creations and revealing songwriting and recording sessions, all of which are captured on film. The film also features cameos by Edgar Allan Poe, Mick Fleetwood, Reese Witherspoon, a massive white stallion in the backyard, owls and naturally, a few vampires who appear in several “home-movie” style music videos.
Along with tracking the Nicks/Stewart creative partnership, “In Your Dreams” has plenty of other cinematic payoffs including rare never before seen personal scrapbook stills from Nicks’ childhood and family life, and a wealth of candid backstage and performance shots taken over the last 35 years. The documentary was produced by Dave Stewart’s production company, Weapons of Mass Entertainment.
Nicks, who has sold millions of records as a solo artist and writer of such iconic songs as “Landslide,” “Gold Dust Woman” and “Edge of 17,” is regularly cited by stars as diverse as Taylor Swift, Kid Rock, Courtney Love, Sheryl Crow, The Dixie Chicks and John Mayer as an iconic favorite and heroine and is a continuous inspiration to the world’s top fashion designers.
“She is really real. It doesn’t matter if she is singing in the make-up room or in the middle of a TV interview. She is who she is, and she doesn’t change,” commented Stewart.
“This is our baby and we give her lovingly into your dreams. From our tribe to yours,” concluded Nicks.
