Ep. 22: Drea - Pop Artist
I'm so excited to share my chat with pop artist, Drea. She takes us on her journey beginning with piano lessons taught by her mom starting at age 5, to performing in her dad's church, to being a hip hop and break dancer in London, to graduating with a degree in Women and Gender Studies, to releasing her debut album in July of 2016, entitled No Vacancy.
Drea's is a story of getting to the core of who she is as a person, of staying true to herself, of embracing herself as a sexual being, of being an independent woman making a life and a career as an artist in the city of Los Angeles.
I asked Drea to email me a few fun facts about her that we didn't cover on the show. Here's what she sent:
1. I am terrified of alligators. 2. I met my album's producer on Facebook and my DJ on Instagram! 3. I always have a book and a notebook in my purse. 4. I had my first kiss when I was 20 in a pub in England with a Yorkshire man named Steven. 5. I stepped on a pencil when I was five and the lead mark is still in my foot. 6. I am the only person in my family with green eyes. 7. I've been to Macchu Picchu and have eaten the Peruvian delicacy: guinae pig. 8. Missy Elliott is my go to motivation music. 9. I have a fear of riding bicycles. I can do it, but I don't like to. My mom once took my car keys away until I rode a bike around the block. 10. When I'm really stressed, I have intense zombie apocalypse dreams. I'm always wielding a machete. Hiyah!
During our conversation, Drea opens up about some of the things she's seen in her three years of working in the music industry in LA. She's got solid advice for women in the business. And, she treats us to a beautiful, stripped down cover of the title track from her debut album!
I'm so excited to present to you my chat with pop artist, Drea!
