Drew Danburry is a singer-songwriter who has toured and released records independently for approximately eight years now. It is debated whether this itinerantly musical lifestyle began in high school under the small but groundbreaking rap career he supposedly chartered or if it really started when a band was formed in college with some friends in the summer of 2002. Nonetheless, the facts are simple and straightforward, and to avoid any celebritizing of normality, here are the unfettered facts regarding Drew Danburry.
