International music, television, and film star Drake Bell (Drake & Josh) will digitally release his new EP, A Reminder, on June 28. The EP’s melodic/pop-driven first single, “Terrific”, is available today!
Drake commented about the EP, “I have so much going on right now with my acting, and a full album will probably not happen until next year. I wanted to release these four tracks for my fans. They haven’t had new music for a while.”
Who are some of Drake’s biggest musical influences?
“I’d say my main influences are The Beatles (of course), Harry Nilsson and The Beach Boys, but I’m also hugely influenced by Rufus Wainwright, Nick Drake, Elliot Smith, Francois Hardy and a lot of Brazilian music.”
Drake can also be seen as the star of this summer’s Nickelodeon live-action/CG adaptation of The Fairly Odd Parents, A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! opposite Daniella Monet (Victorious). Additionally, Bell will embark on a summer music tour in Latin America from mid-July to the end of August, a select few US dates in August and his first European tour in September/October.
