3 February 2010 marked the inauguration of a dream. On that evening, Ricardo iamuuri and Barrett Black were invited to do a LIVE performance on WPPJ – 670 AM – Point Park University Radio, hosted by Sarah Powers. The radio broadcast allowed the two musicians an opportunity to reintroduce themselves to Pittsburgh listeners, to speak intimately on how their musical paths converged, and to also share a taste of what was to be expected. The interview/performance went over so well, the people responded with phone calls of appreciation and esteem. The chemistry was obvious, the sound unique, the delivery sincere; it was described by a WPPJ listener as “a breath of FRESH AIR!”

Three days later, the duo opened for Pittsburgh’s Hip Hop Award Winning Band, Formula 412. To say the least, Ricardo iamuuri’s and Barrett Black’s debut was HOT, and heat (as well as a shovel) was definitely needed during the Blizzard of 2010. Today, nine months later, (the baby) now known as “Dream Job,” sometimes a duo, but most often a trio (drummers that have accompanied Dream Job include David Harris, Fletch, Brandon Butler, and currently David Neuhart), is still blazing a trail, with its unforgettable melodies, lyrical gravity, swelling anthems, honest passion, and POWERFUL harmonies!

These are exciting times for Dream Job, its fans, and for the planet (THE ROCK)! With a plethora of heavy weight shows under its belt, opening for national and international recording artists (DBR, Aloe Blacc, K-OS, just to name a few), Dream Job has proved its staying power.

Ricardo iamuuri and Barrett Black are determined musicians, with a creative purpose, ready to invite and inspire the hearts and minds of music lovers the world over. Dream Job is steadily collecting more fans with each performance and giving the music right back to THE PEOPLE! I encourage you to stay connected, and get to know Dream Job, through its creators’ art, their music, their videos, their fans, and their DREAMS. . .

Here’s a link, to a video recap of that night. Please feel free to leave comments.
