R&B ARTIST “DRU” … THE MAN AND HIS MUSIC ARE ONE
DRU (Andrew Grange) is an International Certified Gold-selling R&B recording artist who knows who he is and his music reflects that. The artist is unafraid to give a glimpse into his soul. Watching Dru perform on stage live or on television, you get a sense of the man, not just the performer, pain and all. DRU keeps his music honest, with lyrics that express heartbreak, moving on and the peace of finding what’s real.
DRU has worked with industry heavyweights including the hit-making writing and producing team behind the award-winning group In Essence. As a member of In Essence, DRU gained the experience and industry respect that motivated the now, certified Gold-selling recording artist to begin his own journey as a solo R&B artist and songwriter. DRU released ‘his first album The One’ in 2008. The album’s first three singles garnered top chart positions that made radio stations across North America pay attention to the newly minted solo R&B artist.
Dru’s versatility as a vocalist has garnered him several Juno nominations. The first as a featured artist on Doman & Gooding’s, “Runnin” for Dance Recording of the Year. Dru followed up with hit singles “She Can Ride” and “Gettin It In” off his second album, “On the Brink” selling over 100,000 digital downloads. With the third single, “Love Collision” nominated for Reggae Recording of the Year. The busy year included opening for Sean Paul on his Canadian Full Speed Tour.
DRU released R&B hit “Déjà vu” earning him a Juno nomination for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year, followed by “Don’t be Afraid” with over one million streams on Spotify and 500k video views on YouTube. The successful artist performs on stages in venues around the world, having just wrapped a European promo tour of 15 dates. The tour hit 10 cities in 7 countries, with a stop in Russia for a stint on “The Voice Russia.” Hear the music of the artist and the man.
