Rave Reviews from:
MrJeff200: One dad’s music and miscellaneous blog.
SaulPaul calls himself a musician with a message and WE DREAM IN 3D celebrates imagination (the title track), movement (“Texas Two Step” and “Do That Hula Hoop”), and family (“Mama”). The disc checks in a a crisp 27 minutes. The standout track, “Rise,” features 11-year-old vocalist Alexia Finney, although closing tune “Si Se Puede (Yes We Can)” is right there with it.
There’s a whole world in SaulPaul’s music and a goodly portion of it is locked inside the heads of its intended listeners. If your kids have already enjoyed some kid hop or if you want a friendly “gateway” act, give ’em a little SaulPaul for the holidays.
SAULPAUL, We Dream In 3D
Out of the famed musical city of Austin, comes acoustic kid hop artist SaulPaul’s new album We Dream in 3D. SaulPaul is a man with a message and We Dream in 3D conveys all manner of empowerment. SaulPaul’s goal is to help children believe in themselves so they may achieve their dreams. And we all know those little people can dream BIG! Speaking of little people with big dreams (and big voices), SaulPaul’s single off of We Dream in 3D is a remix of an earlier track called Rise which features an incredible 11-year-old vocalist named Alexia Finney whose voice is as big as the song’s message. Holy cannoli can that little girl sing! Other incredible catchy and empowering tracks include Shine Right Now, Encourage Me, Be the Change, Motivation, and Si Se Puede. The title track, We Dream in 3D, originated as a chant SaulPaul would lead in his live shows. This chant grew into a song where he lyrically reminds children they have limitless potential, all they need to do is dare to dream and work to achieve it! And, as if the album doesn’t already rain positivity, SaulPaul dedicates a song to all us Moms out there. He writes about the limitless scope of a mother’s positive influence on a live track called Mama. Yes ladies, its our time to shine, credit is given where credit is due. Put that track on repeat! The album is loaded with hooks that are catchy and will have you two-stepping in no time. In fact, The Texas Two Step and Do That Hula Hoop are two of the most compellingly danceable tracks on the album. SaulPaul’s message on We Dream in 3D is loud and clear, be strong, be proud, dream big and MOVE THAT BODY!
