About Drew Powell
Drew Powell is a young country artist, writing classic songs that fit just as well on the beach as they do crying at home after a break-up. Drew’s music is personal, with an open heart and honest lyrics.“If You’re Up” is Drew’s first big swing as an artist as he steps out from behind the scenes as a touring drummer.
From North Vancouver, BC, Drew cut his teeth playing locally in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland of BC. While attending Capilano University he quickly found himself an in demand freelance drummer where he played in an early iteration of Carly Rae Jepsen’s band. Wanting more challenges Drew then attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. During this time he found the time to hone his skills not only as a drummer, but a producer, multi-instrumentalist and most importantly a writer.
In country music, the Front Porch has long been a place of reflection. A place where you can look at the life you have inside that front door. A place where time almost seems to stand still, where you can get away. It’s also a place where you can go to observe the world as it passes by you. To think about your place out there beyond the driveway.
