“There are bands that rock, and there are bands that ROCK! Dreamkiller, falls into the later category without a doubt! I was instantly taken into their world the moment my ears were treated to “Love vs. Dreams”. You close your eyes and let the music begin to play…the sound is smooth, the bass hypnotic, and then comes the crescendo that is Christy Johnson’s voice and you’re falling! Falling into an abyss of delicious vocals, mixed with some of the hottest guitar licks ever composed! The sound is solid, and as you let the song take you away, you know this is a band that has their sh#$ together!”

“Bringing in the sharpness comes the vocals of Christy Johnson and Dreamkiller. Having shared the stage with numerous mainstream artists both in their hometown of Greensboro, NC and beyond, Dreamkiller are no strangers to beating the pavement. Describing their sound as melodic/theatrical rock, their sound is a refreshing blend of bright notes and sharp edges that seems to reminiscent of artists like Pat Benatar, The Donnas and Green Day. Johnson’s vocal dynamics hit the mark in both highs and lows, exemplifying her incredible range, even on the grittier side of vocals. These guys are always on the prowl for their show and never seem to miss the chance to their shot, so you should have plenty of chances to catch them live.”
– Patricia Jones, Sceneazine – Vol. 3, Issue 4
