Drew Gibson is a songwriter with a heart for the simple things – dusty streets, back porch exits, letterboxes, and all things folk and blue. With influences from Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, Mississippi John Hurt and other songwriting greats, spinning stories and fingerpicking tunes is truly this working man’s craft.

Like romantic dust Drew Gibson’s music draws on influence from the American days of country-blues and songwriters of the recent past. Since releasing his debut album “Letterbox” in 2007 the finger-style guitarist from Virginia has garnered attention from USA Today, The Washington Post, The Washington Area Music Association, RVA Magazine, and No Depression, for his intensely personal songs and stagecraft as a live performing story-teller.
Gibson recently released his third effort entitled “1532.” The latest offering was born from the healing journey on which he embarked after the loss of his father on the Fourth of July 2012. “Fifteen Thirty-Two” traces stories of Gibson’s family from its roots in Scotland to the branches across Canada and the United States. The album was considered one of the top releases in 2015 by No Depression. In 2016, Drew began work on his fourth album entitled, “Shipbuilder,” which will be released in early 2018.
