Little Turned on
Drew Vervan has a rather eclectic background, with influences ranging from Mozart to Pete Seeger to Pete Townshend. Drew has earned a Bachelor of Music in Composition, but his musical pursuits have always extended beyond the formal academic world. His interests have centered around Western Folk Music, particularly the following: the singer-songwriter tradition, which began in earnest in the 1960s; the energy and diversity of Celtic music from Ireland and Scotland; and the vitality of acoustic music in the pop and rock genres. Through blending these styles, and allowing their traditions to influence lyrical content, Drew has created his own unique, acoustic folk-rock sound. Drew has performed for audiences in many parts of the world. He spent three years working as a musician in Europe, and, during that time, he performed extensively in Germany and Ireland. Now, Drew lives in Baltimore, and frequently performs in different musical formats: with his traditional Celtic band, Kinsale; with his acoustic, cello-driven rock band, Move Like Seamus; with Kristin Putchinski in the Simon & Garfunkel tribute duo, The Scarborough Affair; and also as a solo artist.
