Drew Hottmann is a folk-rock musician, woodworker, small-business owner, husband, and dad. Mellow, thoughtful, and melancholy; he injects hope into sad songs and doubt into songs of celebration.
Drew's early musical influences were 90's megachurch praise music, Uncle Jesse and the Rippers, and the greatest hits of Roy Orbison and Neil Diamond. Later, he would add choral music, John Mayer, and Sufjan Stevens before rekindling an appreciation for artists like Bruce Springsteen and Don Henley.
As a songwriter, Drew has found inspiration in the exploration of his surroundings, relationships, and internal dialogue. His intimate songs feel as though they were only meant to be heard by a few people, because they were.
