Washington DC. Queer. Country. Fabulous. That’s what Drew Beckman’s band encapsulates in ‘Blue Ridge Mountain Boy’. It’s a classic country/bluegrass single that is hearty and it is fulfilling in all of the right ways.
A pop injection of subtle swagger, rings true in this ear-worm contentment. And as the slide guitar, guitar solo, resonating from the consistency of Drew’s vocal goodness, the song is something to take back to your memories of days gone by. Like so many before Drew, the Blue Ridge Mountains is a beautiful stretch of geographic phenomenon that continues to inspire, as we humans struggle, survive, and thrive on this thin crust of the earth.
Drew offers up some delicious hymns, for us to absorb, and enjoy.
Simple. Direct. And expansive. Ol’ style bluegrass, enticing as the style does so well.
Drew keeps that tradition, moving and shining.
Drew is joined by bandmate talents, Sean Hopkins (Bass/Vocals/Beard), Dylan Fitchett (Guitar/Vocals/Hair), Reed Doherty (Guitar/Vocals/Booty) and Patrick Gunning (Drums/Body).
