Fronted by the dynamic vocal duo of South African Soul singer May Parley and rising Melbourne emcee Sinks, 9-piece Dub, Reggae, Hip Hop outfit Echo Drama push the boundaries of Jamaican and Urban music from traditional Roots to new school Ragga flavours. The result is a sound at once steeped in the traditions of Dub and Reggae but also unafraid to draw on modern manifestations such as Hip Hop, Dancehall and DnB.
In 4 years of existence the band has developed a refined live show performing regularly across local stages, residencies, festival appearances and international supports with highlights such as Easy Star All Stars (USA), The Skatalites (Jamaica), NYE On The Hill, St Kilda Festival, Rainbow Serpent, The Hills Are Alive, Panacea Festival, Blenheim Fest, Inca Roads Festival and Folk Rhythm & Life.
In addition to storming the live circuit, the last 2 years have seen Echo Drama release both their debut EP “Bury The Weapons” and follow up remix album “Remix The Weapons”. Both records continue to amass radio play across Australia on Triple J, PBS, RRR, FBI and 4ZZZ to name but a few and were both featured in PBS top 10 records across 2014.
With Echo Drama and their sound continuing to evolve and grow, the band entered the studio in late 2015 to commence their first full length album slated for release in 2016. While recording and producing the record, Echo Drama will continue to build on it's reputation for incendiary live shows across Australia.
