The Mary Dream is the American alternative pop/rock indie duo of Elise Bellew and Blake Ryan Dayton, and are known for their dreamy melodic sound. From a profound and moving dream Elise had about the Virgin Mary comes the name The Mary Dream. Elise’s distinctive ethereal vocals and impactful lyrics join together with Blake’s lush orchestrations and unique guitar layerings to create moving, melodic alternative pop/rock.
The Mary Dream have had numerous songs placed in film and television, and are best known for their songs: “Beautiful World”, “Burning Bridges” (from MTV’s Real World D.C., 2009), “Stay” (from MTV’s Real World Hollywood, 2008), “More” (from MTV’s Real World Denver, 2006), “How You Love Me” (from ABC’s All My Children, 2006), “Beautiful World” on the Canadian TV series Heartland (2010), "All My Life" (from MTV's Teen Mom, 2012), etc. Due to its success on animoto.com, the song “Beautiful World” is continually spreading through youtube videos, and is steadily becoming an optimistic and sentimental pop anthem around the world.
“The Mary Dream have combined all the best elements of pop with a sentiment that runs deeper. It would be a beautiful world indeed if more musicians followed suit.”
