Davey Dreamnation

Davey Dreamnation (born 1989) is an Australasian musician, vocalist, pirate and record label owner who lives in the third person.

Dreamnation is best known for his musical output between 2002 and 2004, which included a series of digital LPs and EPs released through his own Tribesco-based label, DNRC Records, and which redefined several musical genres.

His incendiary debut album, Islands In the Stream of Consciousness, reached number 2 on the MP3 charts, despite never actually being released.

In fact, DNRC Records released and then deleted over 100 records over its short but colourful lifespan. This database of remarkable records is now being reissued.

Early life

Davey Dreamnation (not pictured) was conceived during the playing of a Genesis LP in April 1989.

Described by others as a legend in his own signature drawstring jarmies, a colossus of lo-fidelity, a harbinger of jitches and drum fills and ‘the Skylab of his generation’, he is also fluent in Esperanto and enjoys ice hockey and Joy Division.

Originally presenting himself as a pixel-sized superstar, this once humble mime artist now operates a fully-automated and interconnected international web portal and hyperstation through which he has, over the past decade or longer, sought to document his own troubled psyche

See and hear the results for yourself by visiting Davey’s comprehensive discography complete with links to his astonishing recordings, from the barnestormingly successful Islands In the Stream of Consciousness LP right through to his swansong LP, The Silence of Untold Sound.


In 1994, Davey graduated from the de Burgh Institute, receiving a Bachelor of Music with Honours in Norman-Era Balladry. In 2004 he graduated from the University of Australasia, receiving a Master of Australasian Bush Studies. At present he is in the final stages of his PhD candidature at Renaissance University, Melbourne. His exegisis is an exploration of the lyrics of Chris de Burgh, focussing on the early albums right up to (and including) Into The Light.

Published works

Over the past decade Davey’s own incredibly incendiary music and lyrics have been distributed (often in secret) via a totally random range of Australian and international organs including The Page, Speech Factory, Coat, Bush Telegraph, Islet, Meandjohn, tilt (USA), Couch, MARMITE (NZ), tallpoppies, Bowing Out Gracefully, pole position (UK), Southerland and various journals.

In addition his political views and rants have appeared in The Weekend Hibernation, Southern Tuna,Meritocratin, The Big Fish, Herpes, New England Ravers, Wakers Seance, Crosstown and Fabulous Tasmanians.

As Davey would say, ‘Get ready to seethe’.
