Singer/Songwriter Drew Nelson

Drew and I chat about his recently released album, Tilt-A-Whirl, his signing with Red House Records, the amazing visuals his lyrics paint and the stories they tell for the listener, the characters he writes and sings about, the guitars he makes, his touring in Europe, growing up in Kent City and how it laid the groundwork for his music, the creative process for his songwriting, and more.
