When asked about her musical style, she likes to call it “coastal soul”. A lot of her life was spent on the coast of cape cod listening to influences such as Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys, and Whitney Houston. Her sound is very acoustic and calming, like the beaches she would write on, yet layered with an emotional vocal performance and sincere lyrics. Drea's talents go beyond just singing. She is now learning to craft her songwriting skills in hopes to get a publishing deal, with dreams to write for artists such as Adele, Sam Smith, Sia and Ariana Grande.
Toronto-born singer-songwriter and producer Casey Yugo is a self-professed music geek who got his start in music by making beats, inspired by a DJ competition he saw at the young age of 11. Thereafter, Casey began cultivating his musical aspirations – singing in youth choirs, rapping in schoolyard ciphers, plucking on his father's classical guitar, and performing anywhere that had a stage.
His music is influenced by many things: his upbringing in Hip-Hop culture; an admiration for music outliers like D’Angelo and Stevie Wonder; an appraisal of his Filipino-Canadian identity; and a creative ambition to develop his own pop aesthetic.
His recordings MAYBE IN TIME YOU’LL SEE and BOOMBOX BRAVADO are available now on Spotify and Apple Music, with new music on its way.
