Meet Dacey, the Band

DACEY is a band made up of 4 talented individuals all in their early 20’s. Dacey Andrada is the vocalist while Justin (JT) Tecson is the Guitarist & Keys, Nathan Chan also a Guitarist and Joshua Akow is the Bassist. The band represents Vancouver with soulful sounds, brash production and self-aware lyricism.
