Columbus Ohio - Central Ohio’s Premier Progressive Rock group releases new single featuring vocalist J.D. Freeman.

Picasso’s Dream has released their new single Notion, their first vocal song featuring guest artist J.D. Freeman from the well known act Blend.

Notion also welcomes on lead guitar fellow friend Jay Ott. Jay Ott and Anthony S. Anselmo were both involved in the highly successful and award winning Blue August rock band.

“Jay had a song he had written years ago that he had a specific keyboard part. I loved it the moment I heard it, very Rush like. We just had to make this song a reality!” says Keyboardist and Anthony S. Anselmo.

A song of this magnitude required a magnificent voice, so the band tapped local vocalist JD Freeman from the Columbus Indie-band Blend to help.

“J.D.’s golden voice was perfect for helping to bring the lyrics to life,” says Jay Ott. “He really studied the song and they day he came in he knocked it out of the park.”

Also included on the track are Picasso’s Dream regulars Max Bigalow on Bass and Vincent Simon on Drums. The song was recorded and produced by the legendary Paris Hollins at Blue Moon Recording Studios in Central Ohio.

The waters are white, the birds have taken flight
I am on a boat headed for the shore
Rough seas ahead I can almost see my homeland
The thought of being there is grand
One path to take but the tide is surging
Pushing me out to the sea

Help, what's to become of me
Will I be lost without you
Help, what's to become of me
I will be lost without you

The anchor has been dropped
Regression has not stopped
The wheel it keeps on turning
Burning in the fire, the fire of desire
Confused by the notion the may live...

Without you, what's to become of me
Will I be lost without you
Without you, what's to become of me
I will be lost without you

What has become of me?
It is not what I wish to be
Work your way in me
Guide me through the rough, rough seas

At port bow I welcomed aboard the captain
I can no longer mediate your wishes
Something has gone wrong
It's out of my hands
I can not make this journey...

Without you, what's to become of me
Will I be lost without you
Without you, what's to become of me
I will be lost without you
