Drew Davis has been performing live since she was 11-years-old and began writing music when she was 6-years-old. Now, at just 26, Drew has developed her talents to become an incredible singer and songwriter. Throughout her career, fans have compared her talent to that of a young Grace Potter, Patty Griffin, Fiona Apple and Brandi Carlile. The combination of her heartfelt original compositions and soulful power vocals has the ability to make any room instantly silent.  An Austin venue owner says, “I see so many musicians walk through my door and perform. Few have that undefinable quality that makes people stop and stare. Drew has it. She has that ‘it’ that so many people strive for.”

At the early age of 14, Drew was the youngest musician ever to play at National Women’s Music Festival. She released her first full-length album when she was only 11-years-old (released in 2001), and now has three albums and an EP out on iTunes and other online mediums.  Her first, “Traffic,” was released at the end of 2008.  Her newest album, “Old, Old Heart,” was released in November of 2012.  Her third was released in the fall of 2014, and her newest EP was released in the Spring on 2016. All three full-length album contain 10-11 original songs and were funded and produced by Minneapolis sound-tracking company “inthegroovemusic.”  

Her music has been used on several MTV shows including “The Hills,” “When I Was 17,” “Made,” “Snooki & JWoww,” “True Life” and more.  Her most popular song from her first album “Not the Same,” was placed in the season two premiere of Showtime’s “The Real L Word” the French series “Foudre,” and the Mexican series “Infames.” Drew’s song “The B.S. Song” was featured in the trailer for “La Vie D’une Autre,” a 2012 French film starring Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche. Drew has had her music featured on other television stations as well, including Bravo TV and ABC Family.

Throughout the years, Drew has traveled all of the world to perform, playing many shows at many reputable venues across the United States and beyond.  Currently, Drew is based in Austin, TX and identifies herself as an Austin musician.  She has a stellar 6-piece band she performs all over town with and holds a residency with a four-piece at Whisler's every Wednesday night. Because Drew is still so young, it’s hard to say the direction her music will take in the future. What is not hard to predict, however, is the success and recognition her music is sure to achieve if placed into the right hands.
