Reveries was initially started between founding members, Jonathan Avila and Jesse Flores, as just something to pass the time and maybe book a few local club and winery gigs to exercise their creative outlets.
As the writing continued, and with difficulties in finding other members, the duo took time to reflect on the project as a whole. They decided to quit chasing down such a specific demographic and just start writing what comes naturally. In doing so, the sound of Reveries shot off into a totally different direction. Avila and Flores soon after, recruited Ryan Cuillier and Jose Zaragoza just a couple short months before their debut house-show gig in May 2017. The freshly formed 4-piece then sat down to record a demo which was later released as their Self-Titled EP, "Reveries" that emerged in April of 2018.
"Reveries" grabbed the attention of many within the Shoegaze and Dreampop community. Achieving play time on many respectable blogs and radio stations. The Self-Titled EP was successful for Reveries and eventually led to them signing on with Cardigan Records in early 2019.
With the signing, Cuillier left to pursue other interests. And in the final days of 2019, Shawn Stalberger joined Reveries.
