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 setlist. “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 is my way of creating a space for my songs. Giving them an output in which to mature and grow. Kind of like letting your children leave the the nest and face the big bad world ha. 😮 DREW is also a way for me to give myself a proverbial kick in the ass and just GO FOR IT.
Many of my family , life long friends and colleagues have for years been telling me that my songs are good enough and should be heard by more people. I suppose it’s ‘normal’ to second guess your own abilities and have a sense of doubt and insecurity. I’m not sure how normal it is to be that way for most of your life tho!?! Ha. So finally , I’m ready to give my songs the space and airing apparently they deserve 🤠.
DREW will be me, with a group of amazing musician friends playing shows of original material. Recording & making a videos. You could say I’m finally fulfilling a life dream of putting my heart and soul out there in the knowledge that they could be accepted or rejected. Either way #ithastobedunne. Should be fun!!! Andy. 😎
