We recently had a chat with London, ON’s own Chase Drew for our newest segment of Five Questions With. Chase has recently released a video for his single, “Airlines” which you can check below along with our interview. Enjoy!
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Chase Drew. I’m a musician from London Ontario. I’ve lived here all my life. I’m currently playing shows around London and recording my full-length album, set to release in the late February/ mid-March time frame.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
My music is mainly self-reflection. I write about things within myself and things that happen to me. I try to convert my emotions into sound, like what a feeling would sound like if it were a song. I have thoughts, feelings, and sounds, spinning around in my head all day, and some of them make it onto paper and become a song.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
My next show is February 25th at Norma Jeans with Breakloose Entertainment. For someone who hasn’t seen me live yet, I would describe my performance as an engaging, emotional, reenactment of my psyche. It’s easily enjoyed, and a couple of my songs will get everyone moving.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
A song that I recommend to new listeners is my single “Airlines”! It’s a good capture of the general vibe of my music and the video complements it very well. It’s deep and I believe you can all find your own meaning in it.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Some of my favourite Canadian musicians would be Billy Talent, City and Colour, Feist, and IllScarlet. They all had an impact on me growing up and had a hand in shaping me as an artist.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
