Drew shares, "Wildflower" was inspired by two strong women in my life. My good friend who was going through a tough divorce at the time and my niece who was discovered in foster care at age 8 and DNA tests proved she was part of our family and given to my parents to raise. Her childhood struggles grew into a risk taking teenager. Through these troubled years of striving for independence she grew, learned to love, forgive and rise above her pain but always a wildflower never to be tamed." states Drew.
In addition to Drew's solo career, she has embarked on another project and has recently joined the all female fronted country band, The Highway Women.

Fearlessly forging her way down Music Row to the beat of her own drum, Drew has now chosen the very best of over 300 songs in her catalog for her upcoming release. “This EP is 100% honest, raw and created based on some of my personal experiences of being a mom, a wife and the highs and lows that go along with this crazy, messy, beautiful, ever changing thing we call life.” says Drew. "Songwriting has and always will be my therapy, my safe haven where I can really tap into what I'm truly feeling within and express it. I wanted to be very intentional about what songs I chose to put on this EP because I think of my songs as arrows and I want them to bring light, hope, love, peace and healing to people. Music has been extremely healing for me during my hardest times and I want to spread that to others through my songs, ultimately. That's my "why".
