The final chapter of the ‘Drake the Robot’ music video trilogy. Witness Drake the Robot exploring the city with interpretative dance in ‘E Street’ music video. Off of their debut album ‘Timing is Everything’. Listen here.
Directed by Patrik Matheson, who also directed the festival nominated ‘Boots’ video, E Street is the follow up to the enigmatic Life Goes On music video and the final video for the ‘Drake the Robot’ trilogy. We witness Drake waking up in a daze, discovering the city as he dances through the parks and streets, interacting with the people around him.
Inspired by Sia’s Chandelier music video, Break the Robot mastermind Todd Middleman wanted to showcase the incredibly talented performance actor Drew Leatham, who brought ‘Drake’ to life, through interpretive dance. Drew, an Arizona native, has acted with Stray Cat Theatre, Orange Theatre, Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival, Southwest Shakespeare Company and many other theatres. His non-commercial television debut was last Fall on FOX’s Inside the Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes. Other credits include Abraham Lincoln’s Big Gay Dance Party, Arsenic & Old Lace, A Lie of the Mind, See How They Run, Romeo and Juliet, and The Princess Bride & Indecent.
Written as a tribute to friend John Bergen, the song E Street takes you on a journey through music history with nods to Bruce Springsteen, The Breakfast Club, and U2.
