There’s evil and wonder in them dusty hills…
Draudiga is the psych-folk/Americana project of Maine musician Reesa Wood (longtime vocalist of heavy noise metal band Cadaverette). Reesa’s songwriting draws equally upon folk tales, occult rock, and the Americana music of her youth. Reesa’s fingerpicked acoustic guitar is accompanied by her high ethereal voice, which dips occasionally into a Neko Case -like barroom drawl.
Draudiga’s debut was an EP called "Paranormal Romance", a lo-fi collection of guitar and loops that showcased her refined vocal approach that conveyed more subtle shades of lust, love, and longing. Since 2020, Reesa has been playing with a backing band.“Phosphorescence” was released in 2021, manifested as a dreamy goth rock album, while "Persephone", released in October 2022 was the first record to harken back to her country roots.
Lead guitarist Caleb Aaron Coulthard’s (Tarantula Brothers, The Coalsack in Crux) searing Gretsches and Telecasters flavor the songs throughout with a black magic western twang while upright bassist David Yearwood (Foret Endormie, Hex Kitten) lends his years of luscious classical expertise and unique experimental approach to the band. Draudiga is currently performing as a three piece.
For fans of Kate Bush, The Gun Club, and Fairport Convention.
