– Drew has toured across North America and Europe, performing solo and opening for popular rock artists like Melissa Etheridge and Edwin McCain as well as esteemed folk singers like Josh White Jr. and John Gorka. “Drew Nelson is one of my favorite new artists,” John Gorka says. “His songs sound like the rest of us feel….dazed, angry, amazed and climbing.” Drew garnered further attention in 2009, when he released Dusty Road to Beulah Land (Waterbug Records). It topped the folk radio charts and, caught the attention of the Grammy-winning indie label Red House Records, which just signed him. drewnelson.net
