Sashi Gandarum (vocal, guitar) was asked to be a regular performer doing acoustic cover version sets at a cafe in Kemang. Sashi then asked her old band mates Putra Praditya (guitar) and Aji Yudo (drum) to back her up. Drew, a unisex name, was also chosen due to an admiration to Drew Barrymore. Thus, a band was born. During three years when they played in bars and lounge around Kemang, they had a chance to release an original single, "Unromantic". From here, they became more enthusiastic to release their own original works. Then in 2009 they recruited Shanda Singgih (bass) to join the team. Finally in late October 2011 their debut album, Sing With Drew, was released. It consisted of 11 songs, the compositions are basically easy listening pop songs but more deep and meaningful, yet based on non-fictions. Two well-known guys also participated behind the scene for Drew debut album: Tommy P. Utomo as the sound engineer, and Andi Rianto as the music director. Their first single, "Radio", has currently played heavily on national radios. Go to MySpace and type "singwithdrew" to listen to their songs and find out more about them.
Edition: October 19, 2011Rock-n-Roll-Exhibition: WENING GITOMARTOYOBest Days:: Playlist, intro, song descriptions, and photos, handpicked and written by Wening herself :: HALO, KAWAN Pertama-tama, terima kasih untuk yang tersohor Rudolf Dethu atas undangannya untuk membuat pameran musik ini. Saya kerap merasa gugup saat membuat playlist atau mixtape/CD, karena pasti saya akan berlaku ceroboh alias ada saja yang terselip atau malah menyertakan lagu yang nantinya saya sesali. Berhubung saya sudah jarang membuat mixtape/CD untuk kawan-kawan, ini saya buat untuk (ceritanya) kawan baru alias sebagai sarana berkenalan sekaligus untuk kawan lama. Kurang lebih inilah lagu-lagu dalam keseharian saya, yang membuat saya menangis, terkagum-kagum, sampai bergoyang halus di balik meja kantor. Ada beberapa nama kegemaran yang tak tercantum, seperti Cocteau Twins atau David Gates, tapi tak menyebutkan bukan berarti tak mencintai (walau bukan lantas berarti saya suka Nicki Minaj). Semoga menikmati. Radio streaming live:
