JustDrew

JustDrew

Headline Act

With a decade of Guitar knowledge behind his belt, artist JustDrew will be taking to the stage at Pontypool takeover. His work is inspired by ‘the passionate’ the person getting a coffee on his morning commute to work, the person who plays in the leaves in autumn, the motivated who believe in a better future; it was through this that Drew found his personal passion and began private guitar lessons at the young age of 10.

‘Music is important to me because it keeps me going, music is always there’

Using his love of music to fight through hard times Drew wishes to continue to inspire passionate people to find their personal love.

‘JustDrew’ was born from the connection between one man and his guitar - focusing on the acoustic raw sounds of the instrument.

JustDrew has put together a medley of favorite and iconic sounds ranging from pop to Disney to celebrate and encompass the festival experience.

I am a cosplayer who has been performing in various forms all of my life, from Dance to solo signing. My favourite is straight singing and musical theatre. I sing a variety of songs from all sorts of genre but I love disney songs, a bit of jazz and also rock. I am even known to write the odd parody on occasion too! One or more you might here me perform when I am asked to sing live.
