Drew Erwin has signed a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music and Southern Pacific Music.
A Memphis native, Erwin ran front of house and managed production for The Band Camino from 150 cap clubs around the world all the way up to Bridgestone Arena with Dan + Shay in 2020, before the pandemic. During that time off the road he settled into a creative routine and got back in touch with his songwriting and artistry. He subsequently toured as bassist for Nashville-based indie rock band Goldpark and electric guitar/back ground vocalist for indie folk artist Hunter Metts in 2021, while continuing to freelance as an audio engineer between runs for acts such as Restless Road and Dylan Schneider.
In 2022, Erwin toured as bassist for American Idol season 19 winner Chayce Beckham, and opened for acts including Luke Bryan and Luke Combs. He is currently collaborating and recording with producer, artist, and guitarist Sadler Vaden, and plans to release new music soon.
“Drew has some kind of magic that’s hard to explain. I’m such a fan of him and can’t wait to watch him take flight,” says Christina Wiltshire, Senior Director of A&R, Warner Chappell Music Nashville.
“I watched a live performance of Drew on Instagram and invited him to be featured at The Pitch Meeting’s weekly songwriter night,” shares Erland Wanberg, Co-founder and CEO, Southern Pacific Music. “When I saw him perform in person, I knew I had to make something happen. Drew can silence a crowded bar with heart-felt storytelling and raw emotion. His artistry is honest and immensely captivating. I’m honored to partner with Warner Chappell Music and officially launch Southern Pacific Music with such an extraordinary artist.”
“My plan when I left Memphis was to keep my head down, and just try to learn as much as I could about the industry. The lessons and experiences I’ve learned from the road have been invaluable. The plan was to give myself five years to sharpen my skills and be a sponge within my environment. Those five years are up now, and I feel so grateful and ready to put all my efforts into my career as an artist and a songwriter,” says Erwin.
