NEVER SHOUT NEVER
Never Shout Never has been reborn. While the moniker has long referred to 20-year-old Christofer Drew, it is now the name of a full band with the messy-haired singer-songwriter at its helm – and the change couldn’t have come at a better time.”
With six EPs and two albums under h...
is belt, over 2.5 million Facebook fans, nearly 50 million MySpace profile views and over 157 million song plays, it’s clear that Drew has achieved breakthrough success since his first upload. However, the talented guitarist experienced some dark moments following the release of his Butch Vig-produced album, Harmony, becoming “a little bitter towards the music industry” and left shaken by the breakup from his girlfriend of almost two years. But, through his search for a higher consciousness, he found a path of enlightenment that led to a whole new outlook on music and life.
In an almost therapeutic way, Drew has woven his experiences into Time Travel, the first album recorded and produced by Never Shout Never. The band members, who each contributed backing vocals on the full-length, holed up in Springfield, MO, just one hour outside of their hometown of Joplin, and dedicated themselves to making Never Shout Never’s most impressive album to date.
“It’s kind of been a long time coming,” Drew says. “I’ve always wanted Never Shout to be a band, but I’ve always had other people telling me that it’s my thing and I need to keep taking pictures by myself and stuff. But I’m at a point now where I found my core group of guys, and I would much rather go in with this new fresh outlook and as a group instead of focusing all on me. It’s going to be awesome having personalities in the group, because we’re all such different people, but at the same time, we all stand for and represent the same thing.”
