    It's very tough to find a VO artist who's also melodically very sound! Drew delivered wonderfully! He's a perfect mixture of incredible VO and perfect singing! What a great find!

    Drew recorded two songs that I wrote, and he exceeded all of my expectations. He is a true professional. His guitar work and vocal performances were absolutely perfect. He clearly strives to achieve the end result that you desire, and he gets the job done in the expected time frame. I highly recommend him, and I would most certainly work with him again.

    Drew nailed the style we were after right off the bat, we requested a second take on a verse for some minor improvements and he delivered that, hook, line and sinker. Happy camper here.
