|After much success with his debut EP New Perspective, Drew Schueler is |
back with a beautiful, authentic single.
His new song “I Do” was written as a surprise for his wife Chloe as their
first dance at their wedding in September.
“Chloe was expecting to have our first dance to our favorite Ed Sheeran
song, ‘Tenerife Sea’ but was completely caught off guard,” Drew said. “I’ve written many love songs for her before, but I wanted to write her a timeless wedding ballad.”
“I Do” will be available everywhere January 18th
Nashville Music Guide’s Lucky 13 with Drew:
1. What was the first song you ever performed?
The first song I ever performed was actually “Come Sail Away” by Styx. My father plays in an 80s cover band in Cincinnati and when I was about 4 years old, I went on stage and performed with their band.
2. Did you come from a musical background?
My father plays in an 80s cover band and my mother worked in radio in Cincinnati so I grew up surrounded by music
3. What are your musical influences?
Recently, I’ve been influenced by artists like Lauv, Jon Bellion, LANY, and Justin Bieber.
4. What personal advice would you give to someone wanting to pursue this career?
I would advise them to passionately chase their purpose and persevere through adversities.
5. If you had to do it all over again, would you still choose this career? Would you do anything differently?
I would absolutely do it over again! Every song, empty gig, and mistake has built me to be the person I am now. Every let down was building my character and I wouldn’t change a thing for that.
6. How would you describe your music to someone that has never heard you before?
My music is full of catchy melodies and interesting production sounds. I hope my songs sound familiar but also very unique.
7. As a child growing up, music surrounds us; What type of music did you hear the most back then? How does it differ from what you listen to now?
When I was really young, I listened to 70s and 80s music. Around high school I got into punk music. Then I actually listened intently to OneRepublic and Ed Sheeran and I was instantly obsessed with pop music and writing.
8. What do you feel distinguishes “an artist” from just a musician?
An artist is someone who has a grand vision and something they want, or have to say. An artist can be very successful even if he or she isn’t a great musician. People will be drawn to their story. And an amazing musician may not be a great artist.
9. How do you like to enjoy your relaxation time away from the music?
I love spending time with my wife, family, and friends. I’m a pretty social person so I enjoy surrounding myself with others.
10. What are your up-to-date performance plans? New Releases? Tours ? News?
I’ve got a show at The High Watt on February 20th, which I am so stoked for. I also have a bunch of new songs which I can’t wait to play live.
11. When things seem to go negatively at times, how do you turn things into something positive?
In this industry, more than most, it’s so easy to focus on negatives. I find myself dwelling on them constantly. It’s a daily battle to change my perspective and realize that I am supposed to do music for a reason. Comparing myself to other artists is pointless.
12. As an artists, how would you define SUCCESS?
I would define success as being proud of the art I create. If I love the music I make, then I consider myself successful.
13. Do you currently have an agent, endorsement, record label, sponsor, etc?
I don’t currently have any of these, but I would love to find people who believe in my vision and music.
