Have you listened carefully to Nora Jane’s original song Travelin’ On? Or seen a live performance of Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line? Who is that guy clapping throughout?
It’s Party Line drummer Drew Lawhorn — a Salem, Virginia-born drummer who started performing professionally at age 13! Drew started out playing snare drum in the high school marching band, and at age 16, he became a drum instructor and taught private lessons to students. At 17, after high school, Drew was hired on by several high schools as a drumline instructor where he wrote, arranged and taught percussion.
He has played with Robert Randolph, John Popper and Tim O’Brien; and his style draws from main influences such as Carter Beauford, Kenny Malone and Buddy Rich. Drew now lives in Nashville, TN and tours full time with Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line. Have a question for Drew? Want to know where The Party Line will be playing next?
