Biography

Exeter's anachronistic wunderkind, The Dramadies, are a female fronted four-piece dedicated to heavy-grooving rock & roll and psychedelic jams. 17 year-old guitar heroine Chelsea Paolini is backed impressively by a trio of accomplished musicians; Greg Baldi (bass), Tom Power (keyboard) and Evan Lerch (drums). Together they create a powerful and infectious sound.

"They've got a buzz among them that hasn't been seen in years on the Seacoast." "Glimpses into genius" "This chick can rock!" “Kick-ass musicianship”

Paolini is also the band’s guitarist and songwriter. Her playing is astonishing, even more so when you consider she’s still in high school.

Lyrics

Somnolence

Written By: Chelsea Paolini

Somnolence
I woke up in a state of lost devotion
I woke up with my feet above my head
With every dream that floats away
Along that night sky waterway
There comes a reality that kills me dead

Through cracks of cerebellum they will creep
Good feeling in my blankets when I sleep
Memories of you as far back as I can trace
Glass of water on my bedstand just in case

Thank god tonight is lasting longer
The sweet smell of being loved won’t end
I adore every one around me
Thoughts of eternity surround me
I reluctantly wake up again

I realize I’m stupidly attached
Desiring everything my left-brain hatched
Won’t admit that I’ve fallen behind
So I close my eyes, your hand’s in mine

Through cracks of cerebellum they will creep
Good feeling in my blankets when I sleep
Memories of you as far back as I can trace
Glass of water on my bedstand just in case
