Drew Mazur is a writer, poet, singer-songwriter, composer and teacher.
Drew was trained in jazz saxophone, but is also a self-taught pianist, his primary instrument for his songwriting.
In 2013, Drew graduated from Western Connecticut State University (WCSU) with a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Writing. He was Managing Editor of the WCSU student newspaper, The Echo. While at WCSU, he was a frequent opening act at the Midtown Coffeehouse and played live on the student-run radio station, 91.7FM WXCI. Drew has also performed at Arlene’s Grocery and The Bitter End in Manhattan.
Drew’s songwriting combines mellow personality and intermittent angst with a jazz background, melodic indie arrangements and pensive lyrics. His music pays its regards to the enigmatic David Bowie, the piano-power of Keane and the intuitive songwriting of Duncan Sheik and Leonard Cohen. He has produced much of his recorded music. His first EP, A Wiser Way, was released in April 2014. Drew also composed music for the feature film For 20.
Drew self-published his first book of poems, Drewisms: Poems, Lyrics & Reveries, in May 2015. Drewisms, the compilation album inspired by his book, was released the following August. He released two singles, “Big Eyes” in May 2016 and “Daughter of the Wind” in April 2017, with the help of co-producer and engineer DTronic.
