Hamilton Leithauser at Union Transfer on 11/02/2017 08:30 PM EDT

1026 Spring Garden St.

    Hamilton Leithauser - Tickets - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA - November 2nd, 2017
    'I Had A Dream That You Were Mine' is an album of songs Hamilton Leithauser and Rostam wrote and recorded together between July 2014 and February 2016. In the spirit of collaborative albums, not unlike those of David Byrne and Brian Eno, each musician's individuality remains in tact, while in fact, on this record, both Hamilton's identity as a singer and Rostam's as a producer seem to reach new heights.
