Drew brings the full band… touring behind the release of his newest cd, THE SOUTHERN DRAW, DREW GIBSON, guitarist, songwriter and Virginia native, is distinct as a dusty street, as if grown from the earth, rooted in soil and dirt, yet blossoming with flowery heartache: Drew’s music possesses a brand of yearning for the simple things – front porches, letterboxes, and all things folk and blue. Possessing an acoustic foundation with walls of electricity and melodic in its simplicity, his debut release  LETTERBOX brought a level of professionalism and maturity rarely seen in a freshman effort today. Drew reaches into a world of country blues, roots music, Americana, and folk. With influences from Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, and Mississippi John Hurt, and even John Coltrane, spinning melodies with outstanding guitar picking stature is truly this working man’s craft. Of his latest cd, The Southern Draw, “…it’s apparent he counts blues masters such as Son House and Mississippi John Hurt in his list of inspirations.” – The Washington Post 

    “…well worth checking out.”  – USA Today
