Graham Drew, from London, UK, started playing bass at the age of 13 starting out in a high school band. After spending several years into his early/mid 20’s playing bass for various groups in and around London he switched to guitar in 1994, playing in the female fronted rock band Jade Fox between 1996 and 2003.
After playing guitar in several bands and then fronting the Pink Floyd tribute band ECHOES for two years in the David Gilmour role of lead guitarist and lead vocalist he returned to the bass in 2011 when he joined the alt-rock band drumfish. This band released an ambitious double live CD/BluRay DVD album entitled ‘FiveLive’ in 2013 and continues to play live.
Graham mostly works as a session bassist in the Washington DC Metro area, and currently plays with singer/songwriter Crys Matthews, a rising star who was the winner of the 2017 NewSong Music Competition in New York City. He played on Matthews’ last three CD’s and will be performing with her throughout 2018.
In regard to the Genzler Magellan 800 which he now endorses, Graham says “I have been getting to know the Magellan 800 and I’m blown away by its sound and versatility. After playing through a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 almost exclusively for seven years I didn’t think I’d find another amp that I would love so much, but the Magellan is everything the Shuttle has been and then some. No matter what bass I play through it, I’m able to dial in some truly amazing tones. As a longtime fan of the Shuttle, moving on to the Magellan 800 feels like a natural progression for me, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I’m grateful to everyone at Genzler for welcoming me on board and making me feel like part of the family”.
