Based out of Washington, DC, Virginia native Drew Gibson has been lauded for his finger-picking ability, as well as his heartfelt and lyrical songwriting style. The self-taught guitar player has independently released two full-length albums, gaining national and international attention from music writers and listeners alike. Drew recently released his new album, 1532, co-produced by Gibson along with Marco Delmar with additional production from Bobby Read.  1532 was written in memory of Drew’s father with themes of moving forward through life in remembrance of those we have lost and love.


In 2007 Richmond, Virginia native and Washington, DC resident, Drew Gibson, released his debut album, Letterbox. Upon its release the self-taught guitar player started to get some attention. With its roots and acoustic blues sound Letterbox definitely struck the right chord with critics. “An independent release deserving mainstream attention,” wrote David Kleiner of “An artist with enormous writing, picking, and vocal chops.” Letterbox also garnered positive reviews from USA Today and the Washington Post. In 2008 The Washington Area Music Association nominated the record for Best Debut Album and Drew was nominated for Best New Artist.

In December of 2011, Gibson released his follow-up to Letterbox. The album, entitled The Southern Draw, was slowly crafted over a period of four years. Produced by longtime friend and musician, Paul Curreri, The Southern Draw, was recorded in Charlottesville, Virginia, mostly in Curreri’s home studio, and skillfully blended indie sounds of blues, alt-country, and folk. With more guitars, more drums, more vocals, and more keyboards, The Southern Draw featured a wall of sound with a more electric feel than Gibson’s debut, but still drew from the same songwriting well.

In early 2015 Drew released his third full-length album, 1532, this time around will take credit as co-producer. The project began at Small World Music Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia, with producer Bobby Read, and was completed in the DC area with producer Marco Delmar at Recording Arts Studio. Delmar also helmed Drew’s debut album, Letterbox.
Fifteen Thirty-Two is dedicated to Gibson’s father, who passed away in 2012. The album focuses on family members and their stories with an overarching theme encompassing the memories of loved ones and the triumph over loss.
