Drew Kennedy

Drew Kennedy wasn’t born in Texas but as the old saying goes, he got here as fast as he could. Born in Philadelphia in 1980, Drew grew up with his sights set on baseball and a degree in American History. He was a music fan but had never sung nor played an instrument. In his sophomore year at Hampden-Sydney College, his mom asked what he wanted for Christmas. Wanting something not school or sports related, he asked for a guitar. 

“I was just 20 years old,” explained Drew. “I thought I’d learn a few Dave Matthews songs and increase my chances with the ladies. When I got the guitar, I fell in love with it and started writing almost immediately.”
