About

Quang Ly of Delta DreamsWelcome to Passport – The Official Delta Dreams Website. Delta Dreams, the music project written and directed by Quang Ly, explores the boundaries of atmosphere, emotional melodies, poetic imagery, and hypnotic grooves. It is dramatic as it is electronically orchestrated.

Delta Dreams is a form of emotional communication. The combination of rhythmic patterns, melodic progressions, and lyrical content communicate and express feelings that we share through common experience. A pop song is a three-minute fix of an emotional drug. We are connected through our humanity and most successful songs speak to this. It is our shared human failings and aspirations that connect us. Whether it’s telling a story, expressing a feeling or idea, it’s the honesty with which we communicate our inner most self that allows others to share in the moment.

“…Everything surrounds me and good works rise from me of their own accord. It is not my head that functions but something else, something higher. Something somewhere remote. I have great friends there, dark as well as bright. They are all very kind to me…”
