Drew was trained in jazz saxophone, but is also a mostly self-taught pianist, his primary instrument for his songwriting. In high school, he wrote songs for the jazz band to try, and it prompted him to pursue writing. While other 16-year-olds were listening to the worst Top 40, he was listening to Steely Dan, Billy Joel, Eric Clapton and Lee Konitz. Drew’s music combines mellow personality and intermittent angst with a jazz background, melodic indie arrangements and pensive lyrics. His new music pays its regards to the enigmatic David Bowie and the intuitive songwriting of Duncan Sheik and Leonard Cohen, among others. Drew is also a composer; he wrote music for the feature film For 20.
Not limiting his writing to any medium, he also has written journalism and poetry. Drew published his first book of poems, Drewisms: Poems, Lyrics & Reveries, in May 2015. Drewisms, the compilation album of demos inspired by his book, was released the following August. He released his first mastered EP, Ennui, in 2017 with the help of co-producer and engineer DTronic.
