The Maryland native spent his childhood singing in England in church and choirs. Music has always been a quiet intensity that has encompassed the path Stevyns continues to follow today. After returning to the U.S., Stevyns sustained his musical development by taking piano lessons, singing in his high school chorus, and teaching himself to play guitar. After graduating high school and spending some time in college Stevyns worked a variety of jobs to fulfill his dream of playing music professionally.
Stevyns song ‘Waiting’ placed fourth in the Adult Contemporary Song of the Year competition in 2008. In 2009 Drew auditioned for the NBC show ‘America’s Got Talent’ where he was selected and humbled to make it into the Finals. While on the show, Stevyns was fortunate enough to work with top music producers Nigel Wright and Shane Keister as well as perform with the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Thelma Houston.
Shortly after the conclusion of ‘America’s Got Talent’, Stevyns was asked to perform with his band at the ‘Whisky A Go Go’ to endorse a new brand of Paul Reed Smith guitars. In 2011 Stevyns opened for Grand Ole Opry member ‘Charlie Daniels’ as well as Nashville Recording Artist ‘Shelly Rann’.
Stevyns was invited by the 'Artist to the Stars' Corey Frizzell to perform at the October 2011 "Lyrics for Lyric" benefit show in Nashville TN to support Childhood Cancer research. Drew also performed at the legendary 12th and Porter Nashville lounge in front of a packed house.
In each song that Stevyns writes he tries to tell his story through the words. His voice is hypnotic in nature and pulls the listeners close in a unique way that allows the audience to feel what he feels.
The response to Stevyns music has been extremely positive and his popularity continues to grow through a wide range of fans worldwide.
