Album Review by The Dramedy's First Fan!

We're just four days away from the release of the new record "And The Light Goes White," and the first review is in! I'm honored that it comes from an important individual in the world of The Dramedy by the name of Francisco Ezequiel. I officially christen Francisco as The Dramedy's first fan (aka public enemy #1) because he was someone who's been there since beginning (at least, who I didn't already know). Given our history, it's only fair that he writes the first review for the new record. So read on! If there's anyone that knows theDramedy it's this man right here!

New Music Video: Waiting On You (01/22/2021)

I proudly present to you all the brand new music video for the new song "Waiting On You." The version of the song is an exclusive "Ballroom Mix" and will not be available anywhere else.

 

The video was beautifully illustrated by the wonderful artist Anne Dandan who hand painted each scene. We are thrilled to share this piece of work to you. It's a simple little thing but a lot of heart & soul went into the making of it. I truly believe that it represents the song well. Enjoy!

theDramedy x Janine Driskill: August 23rd 2020

Our friend, the FABULOUS Janine Driskill, knocked it out of the park again with her latest photos of theDramedy! (I think it's safe to say that Ms. Driskill is theDramedy's unofficial "official" photographer!) The shoot was a race against the heat and sun (hello L.A. summer...) so the whole session lasted a whopping 20 minutes! Not only that but the entire band each had places to be directly after. Luckily—being the professionals we are—were able to get to business and really explore some fun shots. Sometimes the best things happen when it's crunch time, and these shots are proof of that. Enjoy! You can view the shoot here.
