DREW DUNBAR

In 2019, Drew decided to conduct a little experiment for himself. He was playing music several nights a week in restaurants and breweries all around Richmond, VA just trying to pay the bills and was growing weary of playing the same old cover songs the same old ways to get a few nods from the bar every once in a while if he played the “right tune.” So he wrote a song with the may-I-please-have-your-attention opening line…

“I’m usually a pretty good guy, but I usually don’t get treated this bad…”

And heads started turning. Drew had discovered something powerful that somehow in over a decade of performing other peoples’ music he had never considered: he could write his own music. So after beginning to throw the fun pop song, USUALLY in the mix, he started writing other songs. Some boasted the same tongue-in-cheek-what-did-he-just-say flair and some hit on much more intimate themes that would become the MIGHT AS WELL EP. The southern rock fueled title track of that EP speaks of growing up in West Virginia and then taking another look at the state after having been gone for several years lamenting…

…it’s just like I remember but I don’t see how I used to see…”

This collection of songs that draw you in with compelling lyrics and carefully crafted melodies features UNAMERICAN JESUS which tackles the complicated relationship between violence and religion in America…

“Preacher, can I get a gun? Well, who do you wanna shoot?”

And the aggressive THE ONE YOU SHOULD FEAR which dares (and warns) the oppressors of the world to underestimate the marginalized…

“I don’t know what you think you see when you turn your head and stare at me but you couldn’t be right…”

Drew is only beginning this journey of song-creation and we’re sure the best is yet to come.
