Fernando Perdomo Bio

Born in Miami Beach, Fernando Perdomo showed an interest in music at an early age. As a child he would spend Sundays scouring flea markets and pawnshops for old records and musical instruments deserted by their previous owners. His allowance money was well spent as it helped him develop a vast knowledge of all styles of music and a mastery of various musical instruments he still uses today; whether he is writing, performing, or recording,

Fernando had the good fortune of participating in Miami Beach Senior High's prestigious rock and classical guitar ensembles under the direction of Doug Burris. This rock education gave him all the experience he needed to become a professional musician; and at age 18 sneaking into Miami's popular rock clubs, recording at Criteria studios, South Beach Studios, and Middle Ear Studios. In 1999, his powerful guitars were featured in a nationwide ad campaign for Pier One Imports.

At 22 he recorded most of the guitars for Christian Castro's platinum "Amar Es" album, including the number 1 hit "No Hace Falta." He would go on to tour with Christian for 3 solid years, visiting 15 countries and playing countless TV and radio performances. Fernando was also lead guitarist and pianist for Soraya on her final tour.

Currently, Fernando is the bassist and acting musical director for Hilary Mcrae, who is the newest signing for Starbucks/ Hear music. His Bass and guitar is featured on all the tracks of her forthcoming release. He is also busy producing the new English debut for Grammy award winning singer/songwriter, Jorge Moreno.

Dreaming in Stereo Bio

Dreaming in Stereo is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist singer song-writer,and record collector, Fernando Perdomo. Perdomo is one of Miami, Florida's most in demand sidemen and this project lets him make music that defines who he really is with a happy marriage of Power Pop and 70's era Art- Rock Perdomo calls, Progressive pop.

Recently signed with New York based label Dying Van Gogh, Dreaming in Stereo is putting out a special collectors edition 6 song E.P. in March 09 called Six Track Mind with a full length scheduled for early Summer release. Songs like "Steal this Song" and "Im not going to move to LA" are blatant social commentary set to a universal mash up of modern alternative with 70s nostalgia rock hinting at echoes of Todd Rundgren's Utopia, Supertramp, and Frank Zappa. "LA" has been heralded as Miami's new musical anthem critticizing the lack of support Miami has for live music disguised in a defiant battle cry proclaiming "I'm staying right here!". Songs like Lazy and Smile represent a softer poppier side of the music heavily leaning toward the influence of LA power pop legends like Jason Falkner, John Brion, and Micheal Penn. One unique aspect of the E.P. is the presence of 2 instrumentals focusing on Fernando's melodic and powerful guitar style. "Secret Sound 72" is a tribute to Todd Rundgren who Dreaming in Stereo has opened for in front of thousands. "Orlando's Song", penned by Fernando's older brother in the late 70's was heralded by Guitar Player magazine's Michael Molenda as breathtakingly beautiful, full of surprises, and absolutely stunning.

Live, Perdomo is augmented by Roger Houdaille on bass who is Fernando's band mate in the nationally acclaimed alternative band Transcendence. Roger also fronts the critically acclaimed pop band Ex Norwegian who is also on Dying Van Gogh. On drums is Derek Cintron who fronts arena rock band DC-3 of which Fernando is also a member. Flute virtuoso Cynthia Kivlan rounds out the band with her unique Ian Anderson inspired playing. The Musical incest is a good thing, this band has made music together for almost 10 years now. Solo shows are a spectacle of sound, as Fernando uses a rudimentary looping pedal to loop his Vocals, and guitar in a very musical way. "Im the only solo performer with 5 part harmony backing vocals" Perdomo proclaims.

Dreaming in Stereo is Progessive Pop.... Sweet Dreams!!!
