Hi everyone, I’m Drew Haley. I have been singing most of my life. From fronting bands, songwriting rounds, co-writing, and recording, I'm blessed to be able to do it every day. I have my own Independent Record Label and Publishing Company, Pink Pistol Records and Publishing. I have a large catalog of songs that span over many genres. I'm also available for demo sessions and backup vocal work. Thanks for checking out my music and in case your wondering what I'm about, I've written a condensed version of my musical journey below: I grew up in a very small town in East Texas which we just called “the sticks”. There wasn‘t much to do on the weekends but ride four wheelers, go to football games, drink beer at the deer lease or wrap houses on Halloween. At age 8 my grandmother, Nonnie, taught me to harmonize and I started singing three part harmony with her and my aunt. We stayed pretty busy each week either singing at weddings, funerals, church or even the national anthem. To this day, they still make me sing backup when I go home for the holidays. I became even more inspired overhearing the record collection of my parents when they would invite friends over. I fell in love with the old albums of Hank Williams Sr., Janis Joplin, Allman Brothers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Willie Nelson, The Stones, Patty Griffin, Otis Redding and ZZ Top. When I was 11 years old I picked up my brother’s guitar and tacked up a chord chart from Walmart in my room and began teaching myself to play his guitar. That summer he entered a rehab facility to treat his drug addiction as my family struggled through the crisis. I found a great comfort in creating melodies and stream of conscious writing style during this time. The first song that I ever wrote that summer was about him called, “I know you better”. From that day on writing was the most therapeutic outlet I’d ever known and I poured my heartaches, crushes, anger and secrets into my hello kitty notebooks. My music has always been a reflection of my personality. I may be as country as it gets but I don’t wanna sing anything unless it’s got a little soul. I told my mom one day that, “It’s not that I want to write songs- I have to write songs”. I formed my first band in 7th grade and by the time I was 15 I was sitting in with a local southern rock band all around the back roads of East Texas and Louisiana. At 18 years old I move to Austin where I played locally for about 5 years. During that time I recorded 2 albums, 3 demos and an EP. I fell in love with Nashville after winning an Austin songwriting competition in 2010, giving me the opportunity to play at the legendary Blue Bird Cafe. I realized after my short visit that I was living in the wrong “music city”. A year later at 25 years old, I relocated to Nashville and am now currently co-writing Christian and Country music.
