Since Jenny Lou Drew and the Damage Done released their self-titled debut in 2015, tracks off of the album have been in rotation on several Maine radio stations and beyond. Her songs have been making finals in songwriting competitions including the semi-finals of the global International Songwriting Competition, and the finals of the Maine Songwriters Association. But Drew is no newcomer to the Maine music scene. Between 2005 and 2010 her work with A Moving Train received several nominations in the Portland Phoenix Best of Music polls, including Best Female Vocalist, and hit international radar with mentions in Jazz Times and Keyboard Magazine. With a voice once praised by the likes of Jack Johnson and Ben Harper, Drew considers herself a songwriter first and foremost. She has never followed a release with a tour, preferring to stay close to her hobby farm in Maine.
In 2015 she launched a successful Kickstarter project resulting in an unconventional collaborative music video for the track, ‘For What It’s Worth’. The project drew international support, taking over a year to complete, and requiring Drew to build a carnival in her front yard.
Her latest endeavor, the organic/electronic group, Troubled Girl, will finally take Drew off from the farm, as the trio plans to tour in support of a piecemeal release in the Summer of 2018.
Utilizing homemade computers and synthesizers, Troubled Girl is a dub-style, electronic and organic fusion that utilizes live-looping both live and in the recording process.
