The Drakes: News

We just realeased two singles!!!! - June 19, 2014

Well, we've finally released a couple of singles we've had in our back pocket for awhile. Combing through past recordings we decided to release a couple of fan favorites.


Ophelia, a Drakes original, was recorded with Matt Giles on vocals and guitar, Michael "Cornbread" Traylor on guitar, Ron Flynt on keyboards, Vicente Rodriguez on drums and Tom Gillam on bass. Everyone contributed backround vocals.

Darling Be Home Soon is a cover of the great John Sebastian song. Same line up on this song.
We are perilously close to releasing our second full record. We'll keep you posted!
