About American Dream
Vintage Rock & Roll Band, The Great Fraud’s second album, American Dream, is a soulful masterpiece of musicianship, storytelling, and songwriting. The band opens with “Life is Good”, a tune about a New Yorker who goes to Hollywood and gives up his local success to seek fame and fortune. A stinging blues rocker with a heavy guitar lead and gritty vocals that will definitely have you singing along. “Ya Ain’t Got Love” tells us about the age-old problem that no matter how much material stuff and money you have, it matters not if you don’t have love. It’s a bouncy cut with slide guitar and lots of backing vocals about the poor young girl who can’t buy love despite her success.
Blues Blast Magazine had this to say about American Dream: “If you like a rocking social commentary with a very deep and dark edge that verges on blues here and there this might interest you. It’s different and very catchy stuff!”
“The Great Fraud has thrilled crowds with their high-intensity performances, exciting stage antics, soulful sound and passionate grooves that are capable of turning any kind of listener into a new fan. Their vintage sound continues to captivate audiences both young and old everywhere they go.” – New Jersey Stage
