About Dryspell

    Formed in 2014, Dryspell was founded by Blake Andison and Evan James as a project that endevoured to combine creative ideas from two veterans of Victoria's music community. Their unique sound comes from a blend of the narrative story-telling of Andison and the image-driven conceptual song-writing of James.

    Darren Scott joined the project a few months later on bass guitar and the initial core of the band was born.

    2017 was a major turning point for the band with the addition of vocalist and percussionist, Katherine Beckett joining the group. Katherine's contributions helped in creating rich vocal harmonies and a much welcomed female presence.

    2017 also marked the release of their first album. Recorded & Mixed by Noel Anstey at Quadratic Sound and mastered at Victoria's renowned Baker studios.

    2018 looks promising for this emerging band as they have some exciting upcoming show announcements and a BC tour in the works for the summer.

    Dryspell will also be releasing its first ever music video, produced and directed by Rob Willey of Tall Grass Films. Rob's music videos are gaining attention as he has worked with some of Victoria's finest musical acts such as Illvis Freshly and Croatia.
