From a small town above the Arctic Circle, Abe Drennan writes pensive, inspiring folk songs that give a sense of hope. His band ONE released their debut album, "We All Have a Dream" in 2014. With folk/rock flare and punchy rhythms the album is a good reminder that even in the darkest moments, we are all in this together. His newest project, a folk album titled, the "Iglu Sessions" is happening now and will be released August 1st, 2019. Recorded in the famous Iglu Church in Inuvik, Northwest Territories the album was produced by LA based singer/songwriter/producer, Jason Manns. The songs are personal accounts of living in the north on the traditional lands of the Inuvialuit and Gwich'in people, they are stories of loss, hope and healing for the future.
Thanks to the Northern Arts and Cultural Center and CBC North, he has opened for two-time Latin Grammy award winner, Alex Cuba, and recent Maple Blues Award and Juno winner, Jim Byrnes. He has opened for Juno nominee Rick Fines, and shared the stage with Juno winner, Leela Gilday.
Here is what his friends are saying;
“You should check out Abe Drennan! He is this artist who actually makes you feel good after having listened to him. His songs are about more than clichéd love, or hate-filled tripe. And he takes ownership of his music. You can’t say that much these days, it seems. I believe in this artist for his artistry, and that’s why you should believe in him." Gene Jenks
