One of Drake White’s signature qualities is his ability to deliver consistent, passionate performances in both live and album settings. Last week he shared some of that passion with a group of youth in the Notes for Notes® studio, located in Nashville’s Boys & Girls Club. The artist, lauded by Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and Billboard as a “Hot New Country Artist to Watch,” shared songwriting tips, started a song with one of the youth and encouraged each in the group to dive in and create their own style of music.
It was a complete blast. I was encouraged by their talent; their lyrics and energy were off the charts! I can’t wait to do it again,” said Drake.
“I thought Drake was really cool, made amazing music, knew he was local and wanted to get him into one of our studios for a chance to connect with our youth,” says Phil Gilley, Notes for Notes® Co-founder and CEO. “Everything I knew about Drake was confirmed and surpassed by his artist visit. He interacted with the youth as though they were family. He did an incredible lyrical freestyle on guitar where he included a fun fact about each artist from our signature Notes for Notes® poster wall, performed originals for the youth and began a collaboration with our teen artist Sara that he has committed to returning to finish. Drake clearly has his heart in the right place and is using his music as the universal language that transcends all differences. We’re honored to have him in the Notes for Notes® family.”
In addition to partnering with Notes for Notes® this week, Drake also announced a full run of tour dates in the U.S., UK, Germany and Ireland.
“We spent a few weeks touring the UK at the end of last year and as soon as we got back to Nashville, we started planning our return,” Drake says. “I love writing and recording but connecting with audiences on the road is a rush unto itself. We’re looking forward to sharing our music with everyone this spring!”
