Drew Schofield was surrounded by music from his very beginnings. Born to a singer/songwriter mother and a church-going, hymn-singing father, Drew developed a love for music from his earliest years. His first instrument was drums, and he became passionate about percussion and the rhythmic elements of guitar early on. In college, Drew began experimenting with songwriting and quickly discovered a love of the craft.
The years since those early days have brought a maturity to Drew's music, and "Away We Go," his first full-length studio album, is a testimony to his sharpened skill as a singer/songwriter. The tunes are an acoustic-driven mix of folk rock with a pop sensibility that drive Drew's melodic hooks to the forefront of the listener's attention.
Soon after Away We Go was released, Drew was hand selected by Grammy Award winning producer John Shanks as a top 10 finalist out of 12,000+ entrants in Guitar Center's Singer Songwriter 2 nation-wide competition. The competition brought national attention to Drew's music, and he has begun to explore performances across the US. Drew shared the stage with John Mayer in May of 2013 during a special appearance at Hotel Utah in San Francisco, CA, and the future looks ever brighter for the young artist as doors continue to open for his music career.
