Cypress Dreams Ty Alford & Erik Leveille

Singer-Songwriter // Indie-Folk

Dreams is the duo of singer/songwriter, Ty Alford and violinist Erik Leveille. Their classical and folk backgrounds blend in a uniquely engaging style. Ty has been playing the guitar, writing, and performing since the age of 13 and fell in love with the mandolin in 2005 realizing it fit perfectly on the back of his motorcycle. His songwriting illuminates the human experience with tenderness and humor. The albums, Heart to Soul, Merry Go Round, and Love Cracked Me Open, can be found both on CD Baby and iTunes under the name B Alford. The Cypress Dreams album, Walking in Love released in 2019 is now available from Spotify, CD Baby and Itunes. Classically trained violinist, Erik Leveille, can be found playing with Appleton's own Fox Valley Symphony. In 2005, Ty and Erik first played together at the Fox Valley UU Fellowship. A common interest in the Sufi poet Rumi sparked a friendship and musical partnership with Ty. Erik is grateful for the opportunity to explore the incredibly rich world of American folk and roots music.
