Drew Rouse is a fiercely independent musician and writer who has toured extensively throughout North America and Europe. He has captivated audiences from coast to coast and across the oceans with his songs about environmental and social justice. Drew has a unique propensity for meshing smooth rhythms with driving melodies around deeply relevant issues, never preachy. Often described as “Conscious Soul music”, his music is soulful, powerful and keeps you moving. His extensive touring, energetic live performances paired with his solid charismatic presence have earned him a very diverse and loyal following.

Drew began writing poetry at age 7 and composing professionally at age 14. He has released six independent albums so far: Rage, Flowers, Live From Bearsville studios, In My Movie, The Flesh and The Spirit, and Singing To The Choir.

Drew performs solo or with many different arrangements of musicians and instrumentation. Thus, “the Gathering” is a blend of those musicians who come together at Drew’s performances to celebrate live, original music. This provides for an exciting and ever evolving live show.

Drew follows in a long tradition of great Canadian songwriters and story tellers. He is the real deal, a troubadour with a gypsy’s soul. If he’s not on tour he is planning the next one. Keep an eye out for Drew Rouse and his latest CD. Love and Respect to you and yours…
