Jeff Draco will be debuting his new single “Last Night.” with us live!!
Jeff Draco is the moniker of twenty-year-old Jeff Gilman. Jeff writes and records all songs on his own in his childhood home in Maryland. Jeff blends dream-pop and surf rock, to create songs filled with nostalgia and “that will make you want to sing and dance to them with your best friend’s in the world.” Jeff has been playing music since age six and played guitar for Nashville group The Willies on several occasions and featured on Diamond Youth’s EP “Don’t Lose Your Cool” in 2012. Throughout high school Jeff fronted garage rock group STRANGER and joined Baltimore rock group The Dune Flowers on drums in the summer of 2017. Jeff began writing songs for Jeff Draco in the fall of 2017 and released his first single, “On My Mind,” in March 2018. He then released his most acclaimed track, “Don't Keep Me Waiting Around,” two months later and released his debut album in September of 2018. Since then, Jeff has put out two more singles, toured the east coast, and played at Firefly this past summer. Jeff plays with a consistent live lineup of friends Roberto Capoccia (Drums), Josh Poggioli (Keys), and George Turner (Bass). Jeff released an EP this past fall, featuring his critically acclaimed track entitled “For Too Long.” Jeff currently lives outside of Washington, D.C. where he studies marketing at University of Maryland.
