With their 4th studio album, Inside a Dream, which was released on November 20th, genre benders The Werks take listeners on a track-by-track musical voyage through the heart of a dream; into their own hopes, fears, and aspirations. The seasoned jam-centric quartet brings a sonically superior mix of otherworldly explorations and revelatory lyrics to this artistic and mature musical statement.

The journey begins with a quest for “The Answer” to life’s most tantalizing questions. To decide ‘what is right’ requires introspection, expressed through passionate lyricism and emotional guitar work.  After this dive inward, the group brings the funk with the auspicious track “Drop”. Light, bright, and full of bumping bass, “Drop” is brimming with the endless possibilities of what lays ahead. Read more
