The new single off Johnson's forthcoming EP Heart, it's a free-spirited ballad with a breezy Stevie Nicks vibe, and, as she puts it herself, "I hope to create timeless music, not trendy." Considering the singer has opted against major record deals and is instead producing her EP from fan support, it's clear that the independent vibes run way deeper than the notes resonating in your headphones. "I moved to NYC with nothing in my pockets and no Visa, determined to tour and play all over the world," the Brooklyn-based musician explains. "No matter what... this song is a reflection of my time here living in NYC so far."
Filmed in collaboration with her friend Jessica Earnshaw, the "American Dreamer" lyric video might be straightforward, but if the gorgeous shots and equally rich vocals don't give you the urge to get in the car, roll down your windows and just go, then we don't know what will.
