Who is DRAE?

DRAE is an alternative artist who draws genre-blending influences from Rage Against The Machine, grandson and Linkin Park - combining elements of hip-hop, electronic, and blues rock alongside observational, insightful songwriting. The result is a high energy melting pot of sound that translates to an engaging and frantic live performance.
He boasts an impressive resume that includes performances at CBC JUNOfest and RBC Bluesfest, as well as showcases at Canadian Music Week and Northern Touch Music Festival. His accolades include a 2017 Toronto Independent Music Award for "Best Urban Recording" and a 2020 Capital Music Award for “Group Of The Year”.
His hit single “Take Cover” has received commercial airplay and widespread critical acclaim from the likes of Apt613, Tinnitist, DJ Iceberg (Hot 97/Shade 45) and more, and was most recently featured on grandson's #XXLIVE stream. His followup single "Sleep" quickly charted in the top 5 on Cashbox Radio, and the official video has over 20,000 views.
His full length album TARDIGRADE is just around the corner.
For now, you can hear both "Take Cover" and “Sleep” on all streaming platforms.
