I’ve been long known for covering Folk, Country, Pop and Rock Classics.
Managing to forge a 35+ year career doing this is something I’m very proud of. It’s been one he’ll of a ride and I have no intention of stopping any time soon,
However, during these years , I’ve also been writing my own material, now and then adding a few to my set-list. “Take This Man” has been a constant since I wrote it 20 years ago (Man!?!, how time flies by 🙂).
“The Old Fashioned Way” , ‘Home ‘ , ‘Evolution’ , ‘That Was Who I Am ‘ and ‘Love’ etc, have all seemed to fit nicely in my cover sets.
The response they have received over time has given me a healthy confidence in my song writing ability and I believe has led me to DREW.
“DREW #PROJECT7016 my first album of original songs has been in the works for along time. Release dates March 18th for Cds and Bandcamp then May 18th to all
streaming platforms. It’s a lot more than a dream come true for me to finally send these
songs out in to the world. I want as many people as possible to hear them and hopefully
relate in some small way to their light and shade”
A collection of reflections on life’s losses, blessings, lessons, stop signs and learnings;
DREW #project7016 brings together many years of survival and gratitude. Each song was
written during one hospital stay or another and captures a different time, place and mood.
It also reflects the many musical genres which have influenced him.
