I’m Drew Thomson, I like flip flops, adidas track pants, collecting guitars and Okkervill River.

I like other things but right now that’s what I really like. I have too many guitars that I can’t play all that well but I like being around them. I like the way they look and they feel and they sit on their stands against the fireplace in my apartment that doesn’t work. I’ve always liked touching a guitar, having it hang off me from it’s strap like a dead limb – I’ve never been that great of a guitar player but that’s fine and every day I keep picking the things up and making noise and writing words to that noise. I’ve done it almost every day since I was in grade 7 and I was given a Harmony Bobcat from my stepdad and mom in lieu of a drum set (which I really wanted) and I’ll probably do it in some function until the day that I die,. It’s just part of who I am. It’s how I process life and diagnose feelings that like to hide wander around in those areas we don’t like to go so much. Some songs are good and some songs aren’t – but that shouldn’t stop them from being written. I write. And if writing makes you a writer then I am a writer.
