Drama is a dark and passionate musical collaboration between Na'el Shehade and Via Rosa. The Chicago-based duo are each established artists in their own right. She as a solo vocalist and member of the THEMpeople collective, he as a producer and engineer having collaborated with artists such as Chance the Rapper on his breakout mixtape "Acid Rap" and Kanye West's GOOD Music on the Cruel Summer compilation, the latter debuting at number two on the US Billboard 200.

Drama's moody sound has been described as soulful electronic combining influences of house music, indie, neo-soul, pop and R&B. Their melancholy lyrics are a reflection of their own personal experiences relating to love and heartbreak. Together they make what they love to call "Happy-Sad Music."

Drama is an independent band. They self-released their first EP, Gallows, in November 2016.


Lightmare is a six-piece soul-punk arrangement out of Washington, D.C making songs about love, death, and revolution, in any order and definitely overlapping. Over the past year, they have quickly moved from playing small bars and house shows to some of the mid-Atlantic's top club venues, all while independently recording and releasing their debut album "Dream Glitch." Smooth and sharp, warm and galvanizing, punchy, political, and personal, their set is guaranteed to get your body moving and feelings flowing. Featuring Shady Rose (they/them) on lead vocals, Vitamin Dee (she/her) on keys, Matty K (he/him) on sax, Beck (he/him) on guitar, Josette (she/her) on drums, and Yung Mike (he/him) on bass.
