Drax Project

Bio

While studying jazz at college in Wellington, Drax Project — Shaan Singh, Matt Beachen, Sam Thomson and Ben O’Leary — took what they learned in class and applied it to another pursuit, making pop their own. The group gained a following after re-working vocal hooks of famous pop songs into saxophone licks. Their cover of Kimbra's track Goldmine went viral and caught the attention of an influential producer, giving acclaim to the newly-introduced group.

Signing to 300 Entertainment stateside as single Woke Up Late took off everywhere, they accompanied Famous Dex on the standout single Light from his chart-topping 2018 debut Dex Meet Dexter which bowed at #12 on the Billboard Top 200.

As Drax Project continued to make their imprint in the US music scene, they gave hit single Woke Up Late a fresh take with a feature from Hailee Steinfeld. As the single climbed to the top of the radio charts, they released a music video featuring YouTube sensation, Liza Koshy. The video took off everywhere reaching 1 million views in a mere 24 hours.

Drax Project added to the momentum with the release of All This Time, an eclectic anthem with elements of jazz and pop blended perfectly with a saxophone beat. As both the track and video made waves, the guys took to the stage, performing alongside Christina Aguilera on the European leg of The X Tour as well as standout performances at Rolling Stone's Coachella party and the Good Day LA stage. An unstoppable musical force, the guys of Drax Project are pushing pop to new heights.
