Drew Dawson Davis is an amazing singer and also a vocal coach from Utah. I first met Drew through a mutual Nashville song plugger friend of mine and thought he would be the perfect singer for “When I Need You The Most.” As a performer, Drew has opened for SheDaisy and even The Little River Band. He continues to work on his songwriting craft and his vocals and teaches professional vocal lessons on his website. I genuinely believe Drew Davis is a talent to contend with and deserves great success.
One of the things I have learned in my music career, is that part of producing songs that are geared for pitching to artists, is to find singers that will fall into certain genres. I used to sing all my “pitching” songs, but people in general, always heard me as the artist and couldn’t envision another artist singing the song. So unless you are a singer that can change your voice and style to absolutely fit the style of song you are trying to present, it is best to try to “cast the correct character” for your production.
For the song, “When I Need You The Most,” I wanted a singer that was similar to the Country band, Rascal Flatts and Drew’s voice fit this song perfectly. You can find Drew’s music videos on his YouTube channel.
