Michigan to Launceston
MICHIGAN songwriter Drew Nelson is an artist with an international reputation and several critically acclaimed albums under his belt.
The folk/Americana artist writes as a witness to the lives and journeys of those he has met along the way. Mixing Springsteen's roots-rock sounds with the folk storytelling sensibility of Nanci Griffith, Drew introduces us to an eclectic cast of everyday characters that includes out of work war vets, forsaken lovers, migrant workers and other directionless lost souls.
Drew has toured across North America and Europe, performing solo and opening for popular rock artists like Melissa Etheridge and Edwin McCain as well as esteemed folk singers like Josh White Jr and John Gorka.
You can see him on Friday, November 30, at No 8 Café, Launceston.
