Amy Dorman, professionally known as Drea, is a songwriter and recording artist living in Los Angeles, CA. Born and raised in Minnesota, Drea remembers writing her first song at age 7.
It soon became clear that a move to Los Angeles was on the horizon, and shortly after college, Drea drove 2,000 miles to a city where she had no friends or family, no job, and no place to live.
In 2016, Drea released her debut EP No Vacancy. A collection of power pop songs, No Vacancy garnered buzz in Huffington Post, Impose Magazine, and several other blogs, podcasts, and dance videos across the globe.
No Vacancy was followed by Drea’s debut music video for her song “Take Me Home”. Choreographed, casted, and co-directed by Drea, the video was premiered by the Women’s International Music Network (WiMN). Drea was invited to walk the red carpet with The WiMN for the 2017 She Rocks Awards.
Drea's single “Hometown” premiered with Inspirer Magazine on February 2, 2018, and was followed by a second single “Parachute” which premiered with Women’s International Music Network and Indie Music Women on October 26, 2018.
A survivor of sexual assault and a lifelong dancer, Drea launched Reclaim Movement on January 31, 2018, an open level dance class working to empower women who are survivors of sexual assault and abuse to reclaim ownership of their bodies through music and movement.
In May 2018, Drea launched her first event as creator of the For Her Concert Series, a live music event organized, staffed, and performed by women that benefits women in need.
Drea serves on the board of directors for The Ladybugs Movement, a non-profit campaign which works to bring feminine hygiene products to homeless women in Los Angeles. In October 2018, Drea was voted in as the youngest board member for LA-based non-profit Project MuszEd which works to provide opportunities and resources in music education for underprivileged youth.
Currently applying to graduate programs in public affairs, Drea is continuing to write and record new music, which is slated to release in 2019.
