Band/artist history
Drew Laird is a solo acoustic musician from Bloomington, Indiana. He uses loop effects to create multi-instrumental improvisations. He was recently dubbed the "one-man jam band". His style of transcendental, or "trance" rock has flavors of acoustic and alternative rock, ambient, neo-psychedelia, New Age and Native American music. Drew uses two Boss Loop Station effects pedals. This allows him to layer guitars, shakers, djimbe, ashiko, talking drum, 5-string bass, vocals and Native American cedar flute. A song may have two bass lines, and a half-dozen different guitar riffs and harmonic notes that wash over the listener in mesmerizing waves of sound. Drew released his latest CD, entitled Wilderness of the Spirit, in 2004. His first CD is entitled Sex, Love and the Art of Dreaming. It was released at the dawn of the new millennia, January 2000.
