Drew Peterson’s Melodic Journey: Spreading Joy Through Music

237

For Drew Peterson, the journey to music is like a soft river, carrying a passion and melody together. Music has been his beacon of light ever since he was a child, invoking, in him, a lasting spark that shines as bright as ever. In an interview with Barbie Edonia, Drew opens up about what drives him, his dreams, and the story behind “A Thousand Years”, his recent cover single.

Music has been Drew’s long-standing companion since his childhood. Beginning his music lessons during early period , by the age of thirteen, he had felt peace and serenity among the strings of a guitar. On the other hand, music serves also as a source of deep pleasure to him that he thinks needs to be shared with others.

The friends and family members are the conductor and key players in Drew’s symphony of life. Their irrefutable backing and mental creativity has a profound role in his musical career and makes his pursuit more able and passionate. Drew found his artistic uniqueness as he listened to other artists, who conveyed the richness of the world through their melodic compositions.

“A Thousand Years” has a particular meaning for him. Through listening of the sounds produced by this instrument, he realized the importance of depicting the love of the audience for it in his own way. The tune is simply breathing a ray of hope and love, striking a chord deep in the heart of the listeners.

He plays his guitar whenever he tries to create his musical fabric of happiness and calmness. He generates sounds and melodies aside from the music, having messages and emotions that appeal to the soul.

While Drew continues looking to the future, Drew hopes to collaborate some of his favorite musicians like Sungha Jung and Eddie Van Der Meer. For him, the goal is to compose melodies that surpass the limitations of cultural diversities.

What we can see is the fact Drew has nothing like his peers; he has own stamp he gives to each cover with his unique style. He takes proven tunes and converts them into something that is special to the musician himself, which is proof to his musical inventiveness.

Drew is all fired up and has premiered a new song “Call Me Maybe”; to captivate fans across the globe this release is similarly a reflection of the artist’s ceaseless passion in music making.

For Drew, however, success does not come from having a lot of fame or money. His long-term goal is simple yet profound: not only to to bring joy to a world that yearns for such, but also to make it an opportunity for social contact. He won’t stop till his pieces have been remembered by hearts that are far away from each other, he’d keep creating the little symphonies of romantic bliss that will be with us for endless years of our lives.

Drew Peterson’s musical journey becomes an example of what kind of function the music has. It can help people change their lives! Through every chord he makes and every note he sings he paints the portrait of hope and melody and thus invites the listeners to join him in this alliterate travel.


Can you tell us about your musical background and what inspired you to pursue a music career?

From a young age music has always been something I was passionate about. I took music lessons from a very young age and fell in love with guitar around the age of 13. I’ve been playing ever since. I was inspired when I saw the joy that music can put into the heart. Music and Guitar bring me joy, and I want everyone to feel that joy.

Who are your biggest musical influences and how have they shaped your sound?

Friends and family. They have always supported my music and give me new cover ideas and help me contruct a song. My older brother once showed me a video of a super cool Fingerstyle Cover of the song “Believer” by Imagine Dragons, and once I heard that, I knew that was the style of music I wanted to play.

Could you share the story or inspiration behind your release A thousand of years ?

I have always loved that song and watching people light up when I play it. So when I had the chance to record and publish it, I knew I had to take it.

Are there any specific themes or messages you strive to convey through your music?

I make it my goal to bring joy and peace into the hearts of my listeners.

Are there any collaborations or dream collaborations you hope to pursue in the future?

I think it would be so cool to collab with artists such as Sungha Jung, Eddie Van Der Meer, or Tommy Emmanuel. Their music is incredible.

What do you think sets you apart from other musicians in your genre?

I am able to put my own unique twist on the songs I cover. I can take it and make it my own.

Looking ahead, what are your long-term goals or aspirations as a musician?

For me, it’s not about how much money I can make or how popular I can get, my long-term goal is just to spread some joy in a world where joy is not as welcome as it should be.
