Drew was raised in a family of musicians in Centerville, Texas. He started on the drums as a child, singing headset Garth Brooks songs in talent shows with his father's band. Rolling into high school he played quads, snare, trap set, keyboards, and marimba, eventually picking up acoustic guitar in college -- all the while singing lead, baritone, and bass in several touring a cappella groups. He went on to serve as worship leader for churches in College Station, Dallas, Bangkok, Washington DC, and Baltimore.
Drew's musical influences are vast and diverse, as you'll hear from his set list. No single genre captures all the soul-shaking rhythms and melodies that move us, so he listens to everything, and puts his spin on whatever songs strike that special chord. He's an old soul with young energy -- a mature voice singing ridiculously immature songs like Ice Ice Baby and Smelly Cat.
After a brief stint in Round Rock, he moved to downtown Austin in August 2014 within walking distance of most venues. He has performed at SXSW, Austin Convention Center, Stubb's BBQ, The Vulcan, Cedar Street Courtyard, Fado's Irish Pub, Waller Creek Ballroom, Hotel Van Zandt, The Ranch, Swift's Attic, Hyatt Regency, Lakeway Spa, UT EECC, Rock Rose Hall, Terrace Club, Cooper's BBQ, Parlor Room, Brass Tap, The Vaughn, Lost Pines Resort, and many other places all over Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas.
Aside from everything above, Drew is also an electrical engineer and now sales manager for National Instruments, a big high tech company headquartered in Austin [more info on this in his LinkedIn profile]. When he's not playing music, you can find him at the gym working out, on the tennis/volleyball courts, mountain biking, running town lake, disc golfing, riding motorcycles, eating cheesecake, drinking Diet Dr Pepper, or writing in third person.
