Drew Barrett is a singer / songwriter, producer / engineer from New York. He has been writing, recording and playing music live for over ten years.
Drew began his music career fronting the hard rock band Barakade. Barakade released a full length CD "Volume 1" in 1995 on Magellan
Records. Drew co wrote all 12 songs on the disc. Several songs from the CD went into heavy rotation on many college and commercial stations in the US. The band ultimately broke up in 1997, and Drew has been working
on his solo album ever since.
Drew Barrett's debut CD "The Strolling Minstrel" contains 11 fully produced songs. It took two and a half years to record because Drew
plays all the instruments himself except for two bass guitar tracks. With infectious hooks and a just-slightly-less-than-metal-edge, Drew's music weaves a sonic tapestry of powerful rhythms and sweeping guitars
behind strong vocal arrangements. Drew's production techniques, and an emphasis on strong songs, catchy melodies, and meaningful though at times humorous lyrics, all combine to create his own unique signature sound.
