Jenn Grant finds her dreams "hanging around" her long after she wakes up, so she decided to celebrate these dreams in her latest album, Paradise.

"I feel like the more attention you give your dreams the more elaborate they become. Then they become lucid dreams and incredibly vivid or kind of maybe psychic dreams. They're like visits from people, so I think that's tapping into another layer of creativity for me that I want to access," she tells host Tom Power.
