Tyrell Drew is a talented singer/songwriter from Quebec, Canada. Currently distributed by Higher Reign Music Group/Sony Music Canada, he started creating waves in the pop scene in June 2018 with his single “Anywhere”. After seeing much success, this was only starting to touch the surface of what Tyrell could become. His influences certainly come from R&B but as an artist, the reflection of his thoughts in music is strongly versatile and touches many genres. Tyrell Drew is currently working on an EP, stay tuned!
Late July 2019, Tyrell Drew released his new single "Beautiful". Featuring an electro-pop flare, we can see his exceptional ability to blend genres. The soundscape gathers momentum, slowly but surely enveloping you in this surprisingly upbeat and beautifully chaotic downpour of layers and moments. The music energizes, you've swept away through a vibrancy during the hooks and throughout the remainder of the track. Tyrell’s voice cuts through the chaos of “Beautiful” with an emotional and attentive sense of confidence and honesty. Rarely do you come across an act that so impressively crafts their music this way. Tyrell Drew is an act that offers the best of the best in both performance and production. He’s consistently establishing his craft, working on those qualities that already come naturally to him, and that’s why every release he presents leads its listeners down an endlessly impressive pathway.
I highly recommend you check out “Beautiful” here and read our interview with Tyrell Drew below!
Hey Tyrell! For those who donʼt know, how did you first get into music? How would you describe your current approach to writing?
Well, music has been a big part of my life since I was very young but I really started producing and learning how to mix when I was 17.
I used to rap a lot but my vibe was mostly about R&B. In fact, I really have a wide musical register. It goes from Ray Charles, Musiq Soulchid & Trey Songz, to The Bee Gees and even Charles Aznavour. These guys and more made me who I am. Fact is that I could probably go on hours naming artists that influenced my craft and that got me into this.
When it comes to writing, I’m a natural. These days, I can topline a song in ten to fifteen minutes easily.
It hasn’t always been that way and I’ll probably get better with time. I mean, the way I structure a song from A to Z now I can releate to an architect drawing a home. A couple of years ago I was only making cardboard houses but I guess I have a lot to say with everything I’ve been through.
What does the track “Beautiful” mean to you? What inspired this song?
This new record is an introduction to the perfect balance between all the different vibes I was trying to bring to my game.
It represents me and my background in so many ways.
"Beautiful" is all about those going home when the sun comes up nights you spend with your crew. I know it might sound pointless to some people..
They’re probably somewhere in a Walmart buying a new set of scented candles for their 8 O’clock bathtime routine.
You have an EP on the way! What can listeners expect from that project?
A dope ass 6 to 7 mostly electro-pop records.
It ain’t finished and I have some other projects going on on the side but you can expect a lot of emotions with a side of thrill. Something you can flex on and then the other minute wonder why you keep pulling up with Bianca or Sara or some other girl name that ends up with the letter A.
Let me rephrase, you can expect a little of everything that makes us humans.
Whatʼs one of your greatest aspirations or dreams as an artist right now?
This is way too big to put in words.
For a start, not having to put up with some 9 to 5 work anymore.
What do you hope people take away from your music?
Whatever they can hold.
