“With a style similar to other surf-rock crossovers Donovan Frankenreiter & Jack Johnson, Drew Bowden writes songs that easily competes with theirs and at times is better. His music is intensely personal and entrancing. He not only has a fantastic voice,but is a talented guitarist as well. “Be Still” is one of those hidden gems that deserves more exposure. Bowden’s music is worthy of recognition for its simplicity and unassuming beauty.
