Singer-songwriter Chris LeDrew hails from the culturally-rich Canadian city of St. John's, Newfoundland. A protege of east coast songwriters Lennie Gallant and Ron Hynes, LeDrew has released two award-winning and critically acclaimed solo albums (Too Commercial, 1997 & Stronger Man, 2006) as well as one with the band Brothers in Stereo (self-titled, 2003), which was nominated for three East Coast Music Awards and took home the 2003 CBC Galaxie Rising Star award.
LeDrew's music has received widespread international radio play, and he has performed all over North America in clubs, concert halls, arenas, and on national radio/television shows. He has opened for the likes of Bryan Adams, Blue Rodeo, Tragically Hip, April Wine, The Stampeders, and many more. LeDrew's songs have appeared on over a dozen east coast recordings as well as in Canadian/American TV and film. Also an accomplished pedal steel guitarist, he's been a session player on over 50 east coast albums.
In August 2016 he recorded his third solo album Art of the Confessor in Nashville with producer Joshua Grange, who currently plays steel guitar with Sheryl Crow's band and has worked with artists such as the Dixie Chicks, Dwight Yoakam, and KD Lang. Grange pushed LeDrew into brand new musical territory for this album, giving LeDrew's sound a brand new vision.
LeDrew did select 2017 tour dates in Canada and the US, bringing this offering of songs to a fresh, new audience across North America. As 2018 unfolds, LeDrew continues to promote Art of the Confessor and also keeps busy doing pedal steel recording sessions and playing with numerous bands in St. John's.
