Biography

DREMANA was created in 2000 by songwriter Grace Sharington and Russian-born composer/producer Spam. The duo laid the foundation for DREMANA by writing and recording 11 songs in the studio they built together. Sharington and Spam wanted everything DREMANA to be under one roof. Today, DREMANA Inc. includes a recording studio, production company, CD/DVD manufacturing, web design/hosting, and anything else a band needs to be self reliant. In December 2004, the band held TWO positions on XM RADIO’S “TOP 20 MOST PLAYED UNSIGNED BANDS.” DREMANA”S do-it-yourself approach is working.
While constructing the business end of DREMANA, they also began the process of assembling a full band for future writing, recording and performing. Karl Geckler, internationally accomplished sculptor and composer in his own right, soon joined DREMANA as a second guitarist. Jamie Principle (aka Gypsi), one of the nation’s premiere house music artist/producers, currently experiencing success with a resurgence of his song with Frankie Knuckles, “Bac N Da Day” (Billboard Magazine Dance Chart NUMBER ONE July 2004) was added shortly thereafter to perform programming and vocals. Bassist Jason Habbley, formerly of Chicago funk band D-Funct and drummer Ziggy from Mississippi metal band Minor Chord, rounded out the line-up and solidified DREMANA as a strong musical force in both the studio and live setting. DREMANA is also known for their network of revolving guest musicians including their latest experimentation with Leah Beabout, a female rapper from Brooklyn dubbed "Feminem" by Spin Magazine (April 2002). Although Sharington's past includes numerous national print and commercial dealings in modeling, she has also worked as a songwriter for Nash Publishing/Los Angeles and a handful of noted international record labels. Her resume includes writing for artists such as The Scorpions, Gillette and Maximillion. "Hacker Rock" is how they describe their sound (a term of their own invention) but it would suffice to say that DREMANA is a kind of punched-up, edgy, pop band that, in addition to the traditional drum/guitar/bass lineup, uses programming arrangements reminiscent of a rock opera. The Chicago-based sextet has captured this unique sound on their self titled debut CD "DREMANA" which has been described as "dangerously addictive ear candy" by Soak Magazine and "A mini-orchestra" by Chicago Tribune. The fusion helped the band develop a loyal fan base and ultimately attracted the attention of Columbia College’s AEMMP Records, the label that released "DREMANA" in April 2003. DREMANA, now self-managed, released EP (August 2004) “Aroundsomanycornersnowlookwhatwevebecome." Spam and Sharington moved to Austin, Texas in 2006 and are currently recording the new DREMANA CD to be released in 2007. Continuing to do-it-themselves - they've purchased a house to convert into the new recording studio and duplication business. Although DREMANA has evolved into a duo, when the CD is completed, they plan to invite guest musicians to perform live shows with Spam and Sharington .

Paris Hilton

I’m so patient that I could lose my mind anytime
I keep smiling
Are all these teeth just a waste of time

Yes I know
There’s people that say good guys finish last
Yes I know
There’s people that say good guys finish last

Dear GOD where’s the finish line anyway
Dear GOD I’m beginning to think I don’t care

Is it here is it there
Is it here is it there

I keep walking step by step am I gaining ground
I keep giving
I hold you up even if I’m down

Yes I know
There’s people that say good guys finish last
Yes I know
There’s people that say good guys finish last

Dear GOD where’s the finish line anyway
Dear GOD I’m beginning to think I don’t care

Is it here is it there
Is it here is it there

Happy

Hey baby
Can we talk for a moment
Can you tell me just what you’re thinking
My heart is sinking and I’m some kind of mess
I’m not getting younger
But I’m getting wiser
I’ve got to give my everything carefully
‘Cuz time’s a precious thing

All I want is you happy
Even if I’m not the one
All I want is you happy
Even if I’m not the one

Hey maybe
It will hurt for a moment
But you know I think we’ll make it through
That’s what we do
But our lives are gonna change
I’m not getting younger
But I’m getting wiser
I’ve got to give my everything carefully
‘Cuz time’s a precious thing

There’s a feeling in my heart that’s not going away
It’s asking me some questions and I don’t know what to say to me
I know that’s not how it’s supposed to be

All I want is you happy
Even if I’m not the one
All I want is you happy
Even if I’m not the one

Mandarin Martini

Written By: Sharington, Spam

MANDARIN MARTINI

Tell your friend to keep walking 'cuz he's giving me a headache
Seems to me he shouldn't be allowed to impregnate
Whatever the case, I'll talk to the man in front of me
You're looking so fine, like a mandarin martini

I've got a crush on you and the crazy things you do
I want your hands on me so you can feel my stability
Be my stability... feel my stability

I'll leave a lasting impression in the flesh of agression
Leave your problems behind
Seek to define
I'll leave a lasting impression in the flesh of agression
Leave your problems behind
Seek to define

Tomorrow you'll be telling all your friends about your stiff neck
Tonight we'll plug it in to the proverbial outlet
Keep away from talking if your mind is in limbo
You're looking so fine and the evening's screaming, let's go

I've got a crush on you and the crazy things you do
I want your hands on me so you can feel my stability
Be my stability... feel my stability
Feel my stability

I'll leave a lasting impression in the flesh of agression
Leave your problems behind
Seek to define
I'll leave a lasting impression in the flesh of agression
Leave your problems behind
Seek to define

What's your name and what's your sign
Show me yours, I've got limited time
Blah blah and a yea yea yea
Turn around and give me a view of that back half

I've got a crush on you and the crazy things you do
I want your hands on me so you can feel my stability
Be my stability... feel my stability
Feel my stability

(guitar solo)

Blah blah and a yea yea yea
You'll be screaming let's go
Show me yours, I've got limited time
Blah blah and a yea yea yea
Blah blah and a yea yea yea
What's your name and what's your sign

I'll leave a lasting impression in the flesh of agression
Leave your problems behind
Seek to define
I'll leave a lasting impression in the flesh of agression
Leave your problems behind
Seek to define

Blood And Chocolate

Blood & Chocolate

I could love you till moonlight turns to day
I want you like heaven on a bad day
You know I know how to be good & bad the right way
You know I know how to see you
The right way

Let’s mix blood and chocolate
You know I love you baby ‘cuz you know how to rock it
Let’s mix blood and chocolate
You know I love you baby ‘cuz you know how to rock it

I can hear you from miles and miles away
I’ll just touch you in my own special way
You know I know how to be
The perfect little girl in a big girl body
You know you can’t stop me
This screwed up mess making you so naughty

Let’s mix blood and chocolate
You know I love you baby ‘cuz you know how to rock it
Let’s mix blood and chocolate
You know I love you baby ‘cuz you know how to rock it
