words by Shabnam Ferdowsi
Drew Tabor, also known as drewby1xo by her dedicated Youtube fans, just released her second EP, In The Garden, today. I've been waiting for this release for months, and the release has already proven my faith in Drew! It's already made it to #14 on iTunes Singer Songwriter charts, and the buzz is very much well deserved.
The EP, along with the all the visual branding that surrounds it, truly captures how far Drew has come over the past years. In three words? Classic, honest and emotional. It's aways exciting to see an artist be able to hone in on a style, and I think Drew hit the spot here.
My absolutely favorite off the EP is "Masterpiece". Aside from Tabor's chillingly poignant vocals, the lyrics show a maturity and honesty that proves Drew as more than just another Youtube cover artist.
This EP is only just beginning of an exciting future, especially as Drew heads out on her first tour up and down the West Coast in November!
Take a listen and let us know what you think!
