Based out of Washington, DC, Virginia native Drew Gibson has been lauded for his finger-picking ability, as well as his heartfelt and lyrical songwriting style. The self-taught guitar player has independently released two full-length albums, gaining national and international attention from music writers and listeners alike. Drew is currently recording his third effort, entitled “1532,” which will be released in late 2014. The upcoming album will encompass themes of gaining strength to triumph over loss while moving positively through life in remembrance of those we love.

“His lyrics carry the mixed poeticism of gesture and definition… moods wherein you know exactly what he’s writing as you reach for more, never to quite quench curiosity ’cause that’s exactly what good poetry is supposed to evoke. More, the guy plays a damn fine guitar with not only killer choices in chords and lead lines but an eerily wistful electronic sustain that starts to pull at the corners of the heart.” —Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange   


One of our favorite Richmond songwriters, BJ Kocen opens the night with another RVA Fave, Charles Arthur!
