Drea Pizziconi Releases "Tryin Times and This Land"


With intellect, passion, and determination, Drea Pizziconi challenges convention to support others with her life-changing focus on music and education empowerment. A multifaceted musician — singer, producer, composer — Drea draws from her classical vocal and instrumental training to seamlessly blend genres from soul and jazz, to blues, rock, and pop into her unique style.

Drea began her career as a soloist performing across Europe at the age of 14; she has since toured as a featured artist in the U.S., Asia, and the Middle East, spanning venues from classical concert halls to international jazz festivals. This experience seeing the world planted the seeds for a career as a social entrepreneur focused on expanding education access in Africa. This exposure to daily life around the world in all its struggles and triumphs reignited her storyteller musical roots.

In 2015, she recruited Grammy Award-winning trumpeter, producer and composer Keyon Harrold to co-found Compositions for a Cause to create music that raises awareness around the most pressing human rights and social justice issues of our day. Together they wrote and produced “Running” (aka Refugee Song) featuring Grammy Award winning artists Gregory Porter and Common, which Billboard named the top single to inspire hope and change in 2016. She went on to executive produce songwriter Harrold’s 2017 album "The Mugician”. On that album, she wrote “Circus Show” featuring Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr, which has been recognized internationally by media and music tastemakers as a leading protest anthem in our current political climate. In 2019, she released several singles she wrote and produced including “Let Us Dance” with the Dap Kings featuring Maimouna Youssef and "This Land", an honest reaction to Woodie Guthrie's popular anthem premiered by Jazz Times and BBC Radio London to critical acclaim for its social consciousness.

Her latest single release "Tryin' Times" is a remake of a Donny Hathaway and Leroy Hutson protest song, which she premiered with Billboard Magazine with updated lyrics to capture today's political climate. Her next album is due to be released in 2020.
