Born in New York City, now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, singer-songwriter Drew Harrison is one of those rare recording artists with the ability to translate life into song. His passionate, honest, and intense style resonates in the vein of Bono, Ritchie Havens, and John Lennon.
In the Spirit of Lennon is his tribute to John Lennon. In the show, Drew goes beyond just sounding like Lennon, but captures the intensity and delicate honesty that Lennon brought to the Beatles music, and later to his own post-Beatles creations. In 2018 he performed this show at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool, England, helping raise funds for the restoration of the as famous, Strawberry Fields.
In Love is the Answer, Drew leads the 9-piece Plastic Fauxno Band in a rock and roll concert encompassing Lennon's post-Beatles repertoire; a concert the world unfortunately was never able to witness.
Drew also leads The Sun Kings, a critically acclaimed Beatles tribute band.
He has enjoyed a long career in original music including the bands New Religion and Ted 302. The Honesty Convention, Ted 302's album, was produced by Keith Olson (of Goodnight LA & Sound City Studios) and Troy Lucketta of Tesla.
As a solo artist, Drew has performed throughout the US, in Europe, and South America, having been invited to open for such elite artists as Richard Thompson, Lyle Lovett, Steve Miller, and Huey Lewis & The News. His 2007 solo acoustic release, Go it Alone, has enjoyed robust success. In recent years, Drew has been a special musical guest on the celebrated Dave Koz & Friends at Sea Cruise.
Drew is a popular guest at the Abbey Road on The River Beatles Festival and on Beatles-centric radio and internet broadcasts, such as Chris Carter's "Breakfast with The Beatles'. He has also performed as an actor for stage, TV, and film productions.
His abilities as a multi-talented performer have earned him fans throughout the world.
Drew adheres to a simple, sustaining philosophy of living life fully and giving back when one can.
“Drew Harrison is dynamic, entertaining and he draws you in. If you hear him performing his original work you are entranced by his storytelling and passion. If you see him perform his Lennon tribute, you feel like you’re in the room with John.”
