Exclusive Music Video Premiere: "Dream Catcher" by Mandy McMillan

Canadian country-pop artist Mandy McMillan is celebrating the release of the official acoustic video for her newest single, “Dream Catcher”.

“After a decade of dreaming, chasing, embracing, and growing, ‘Dream Catcher’ defines my sound and my life. Today – as an artist and as a person – I am exactly where I want to be,” says McMillan.

Co-written in Nashville by McMillan and Andrew Beason and produced by Simon Gugala, “Dream Catcher” was inspired by McMillan’s own love of dream catchers that started when she first made them at a festival. The song is both an honest reflection of her unwavering belief in the cultivation and manifestation of goals, and a compelling snapshot of her own journey towards fulfillment.

The acoustic video was produced by Moncell Allen Productions.

A performer since age 5, the Edmonton-born McMillan gave up her day job in Stony Plain, Alberta to move to Nashville after winning a 2008 Country Music Television Canada contest. This bold choice has led to an array of moments, like opening for the likes of Trisha Yearwood and Blake Shelton, releasing her self-titled debut 2014 EP, appearing on stage as part of Kenny Chesney’s 2014 CMA Awards performance, showcasing at the 2018 Diamonds in the Rough series during Canadian Country Music Week, making the Top 10 of ole’s “Play for Publisher” for her 2018 single “Chasin’ the Ace”, playing in a Fleetwood Mac tribute band, and showcasing at Whiskey Jam.

Now dividing her time between Canada and Nashville, McMillan wants her new music and her journey to empower others to act on their own ambitions.

She says, “Every dream is worth catching and when you can turn them into reality, it is so worth it in the end. I want everyone who discovers ‘Dream Catcher’ to pursue whatever their souls desire. With the right manifestation, we can all be the little dream catchers that our hearts want us to be.”

“Dream Catcher” is Mandy McMillan’s first Canadian radio single release. To celebrate, she will be hosting a virtual “Dream Catcher” release show on her Instagram and Facebook with fellow Canadian artists Mariya Stokes, Ben Chase, and Olivia Rose on July 13th at 6PM MT.

She is also supporting the single with several unique initiatives, including:

• “30 Days of Dream Catchers” – a blog series highlighting inspiring people.

• An ongoing weekly “Dream Catcher” podcast with co-host Carli Kahl.

Mandy McMillan’s “Dream Catcher” adventure will continue with this fall’s anticipated release of the album of the same name. Until then, she’ll just keep on dreaming – and catching.

Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
