BIOGRAPHY

“As a poet who is always trying, unsuccessfully, to write singable yet meaningful lyrics, I can only express my admiration for the talent that Drew displays in these original and moving songs, unerringly centered on the truth of his feelings. In his imaginary cabaret, the lost, the lonely, and the lovers gather to hear a brilliant young master of song tell their stories and his own.”
---Edward Field, prize-winning, celebrated beat poet and author of The Man Who Would Marry Susan Sontag, and Other Intimate Literary Profiles of the Bohemian Era

“...Brody’s performance sounds like a throwback to the hushed, longed for, singer/songwriter days of lore. You can imagine Brody composing his songs in his room, backstage, or in the interminable spaces between studio takes, getting the music, the words just right before committing them to the ages. Lush and lyrical, with enough rolling piano, flute, violin and trumpet for emotional shading...”
---Mike Jurkovic, AcousticMusic.com

“Drew Brody’s ‘Folk Song (When You’re High, You’re High)’ is an enchanting piece of songwriting, with vocals that evoke pain and reflection. The string instruments and piano are well-balanced and draw you in. Throughout his songs, Brody’s use of rolling piano chords is soothing and inviting. Brody is a modern storyteller with folk-rock melodies and lyrical structures that could draw comparisons to Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, and Blessed Union of Souls, among others.”
---Michael Menachem, journalist for Menox Music Mix and contributer to Billboard

Originally from Illinois, Drew currently lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He has worked in many genres and has taken on many musical projects. The highlights:

  • In June 2007, Drew released a self-produced solo album. The self-titled CD is Drew’s 17-track opus, a testament to Drew’s love of folk music. With simple arrangements and lush harmonies, the album hints at contemporary artists like Damien Rice and Patty Griffin as well as traditional folk artists like Steve Goodman and John Prine. Drew released the album on his record label, Baskethouse Records.
  • Drew wrote the music and lyrics to the contemporary musical Cutman, which premiered at the New York Musical Theater Festival in October 2007. The musical was optioned straight out of the festival and is currently in pre-production for a 2009 full-scale run in collaboration with SennovVa Productions. Cutman was Drew’s fifth collaboration with BannerNY Productions. Another BannerNY show, Lightning Field, a play for which Drew wrote and recorded five original songs, won for Outstanding Play in the New York Fringe Festival in 2005 and was recently produced in London.
  • Drew founded the Baskethouse Acoustic Music Series, a summer festival at the Bitter End, at which songwriters performed original songs alongside folk covers. Drew curated and hosted the weekly event for two years..
  • Drew’s song Prove Me Wrong was chosen as a November finalist in the Folk category in the Online Song of the Year Competition.
  • In 2006 Drew was one of 12 artists to challenge themselves to write and record a song a week for the Baskethouse Song-a-Week Challenge, a popular podcast that lasted six months and was featured on iTunes.
  • Additionally, Drew has collaborated on many other successful projects. He plays piano for the Honky Tonk Happy Hour, a hipster favorite at the Lower East Side’s Living Room venue; he fronts downtown rock phenomenon M-LAB, about to release their third CD; and he collaborated with Benny Maze on the song Utopia, released by Curvve Recordings, a dance club hit that climbed the progressive house charts in early 2008, supported by top DJ’s such as Serge Devant.

Currently, Drew is preparing to record his second solo album and performs regularly in New York and on the East Coast.
