Drachel is redefining her genre with a fresh blend of classic country and southern rock. The combination of the two in addition to her powerhouse vocal delivery sets her apart, creating a sound far removed from the countrypolitan trends of mainstream radio. Her sweet southern twang, crystal-clear belt, and pure-toned head voice are balanced out by the evident rock influence in her darker lower register, making her a dynamic vocalist and a captivating storyteller.
Raised on 90's country, Drachel Pereira was drawn to music at an early age in her hometown of Greensboro, North Carolina. Growing up a dancer, she was no stranger to the stage and knew before grade school that she would be an entertainer. In addition to singing in church choirs and local talent shows, Drachel was trained in musical theatre at Bishop McGuinness Catholic College Preparatory High School and classical voice at Triple Threat School of Dance, Music, and Acting.
Although she was always a passionate performer and thrived as a stage actress, her love for music remained in the raw honesty of an acoustic guitar; and her strength in her ability to deliver a lyric with timeless elegance.
At the age of eighteen, the singer-songwriter left the theatre behind, and entered the music scene with something to say, and a mission to be heard.
Dressed in her signature ripped denim and four-inch high heels, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee, determined to make music on her own terms.
“Authenticity is the most important thing to me: I want my music to not only be a representation of where I’m at in my life, but also capture the universal experience of being a twenty-something that doesn’t quite have it together, but enjoys the process of getting there.”
Today, Drachel is attending Belmont University School of Music as a voice major studying commercial music with an emphasis in music business. Currently 22 years old, Drachel is in the process of recording her first studio album; and plans on graduating with a Bachelor of Music in 2021.
