Awake or Sleeping, the indie-pop moniker of Los Angeles based artist, Joe Moralez, comes to life with his latest EP, Imagination. It's the second project alongside producer Steven Solomon (James Arthur, Christina Perri, David Cook, 5 Seconds of Summer) following their 2015 release, Interstellar Hearts.
Working with Steve is always magical because we always seem to strike gold whenever we write together. This time was no different. We were able to balance the brightness of our first project with something a little darker, honest and more personal.
Production started up in Portland, Oregon with producer, Troy Welstad, who co-wrote and co-produced Hocus Pocus and AM Nights. Moralez and Solomon teamed up with Grammy Award winning songwriter and producer, David Hodges (Evanescence, Blink-182, Daughtry, Carrie Underwood) to compose the title track of the EP.
Somewhere within, I believe we have a limitless ability to create a perfect world despite the manmade limitations set before us. ‘Imagination’ is the soundtrack behind this epic inner battle between the ego and spirit while searching for truth.
