Indie-soul singer-songwriter Dru Chen delivers melodic odes to the inner audiophile in all of us. His music strikes up the senses with a profusion of hooks, accompanied by sensuous grooves that satisfy the mind, body and soul.

Dru is grounded in old-time rhythm and blues musicality, weaving rock and pop sensibilities through compelling songcrafting. A multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter, Dru stands out first and foremost for his stunning falsetto, characterising his dynamic vocal range.

Based in Asia, Dru has graced stages such as SingJazz Festival, which has hosted Joss Stone and Snarky Puppy; Ignite Music Festival; and Mosaic Music Festival. In 2016, he headlined Getai Soul Festival with Charlie Lim, and was also invited to open Soulfest, alongside D’Angelo and Maxwell in 2014.

Dru has gotten radio airplay across the United States (KCRW, KX935), Australia (Double J, PBS, Triple R) and Singapore (987FM, Lush995). He was named LUSH995′s artist for May 2015 with the release of his third single You Got It Babe.

His new compositions speak romantically of themes that encompass modern day struggles and victories. Dru plans to release his sophomore album in 2017.
