Drew Danburry: Memorial Day
Drew Danburry is a musician who has toured independently and released records independently for approximately five years or so. He can’t remember all the specifics of his wack life, otherwise we’d know all the embarrasing details. We know that he grew up in Southern California and in high school he released a cassette tape of Eazy-E inspired gangster rap tunes recorded with keyboard and an organ. He was notoriously known as White Chocolate and his cassette release of “4-eva” still remains to be found along with many of his many other freestyling sessions and mix tapes that at some point unabashedly circled the underground hip hop scene like wildfire. They were not good. They weren’t even laughable. After high school he moved to Utah for school and at some point in the summer of 2001 or 2002 he met Micah Dahl Anderson and was pretty spellbound by his songwriting and convinced him to let him sing along with him, where within a few embarrassingly honest shows he was nicknamed “Dancing Drew” for his singing and dancing alongside of Micah. This we believe led to Drew’s own songwriting in which he convinced Micah to help him record a few songs.
In 2008, Drew signed to the label Emergency Umbrella and released the album “This Could Mean Trouble, You Don’t Speak For The Club” and had a most disastrous tour in the fall of 2008 with the backing band cancelling last minute and a week stuck in Florida waiting for a new engine for his car among many other financial setbacks, and other stressful situations.
Pushing hard in 2009 with a plan to tour with a band (again), dates at Daytrotter, SXSW, touring with Ryland Bouchard (The Robot Ate Me), Emperor X and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, there is a lot of hope for Drew Danburry’s eventual success and reckoning of debt?
