A Change of Outlook
Lead singer and songwriter Drew McManus creates music for his soul, fueled by the ever present task of personal growth and the beautiful life that he found in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana. Commenting on his difficult upbringing in Des Moines and residency in Chicago, McManus says, “I grew up in an environment where aggression, violence, abuse, and addiction were always present. It made me a lot of things; angry, sad, and ashamed. I hated my story and I was a slave to addiction. I tried for so long to hide from the reality of my story and the reality of how beautiful life could be.” It wasn’t until an intense spiritual experience lead Drew to break his cycle of addiction.
“The whole story is what makes it beautiful, not just the good bits.”
“I had changed my entire outlook on everything” say McManus, “I began to realize that had everything not happened to me exactly like it did, I would not be exactly who/where/what I am right now.” In an effort to share his revelation with others who may be in the same predicament, Drew began to write every day. “I was flooded with the urge to write down the lessons that kept revealing themselves in this surrender. And the connections I began making with other people by making this music vulnerable and open, began to change everything.” These songs are a statement of lessons learned and a further understanding of self. “The whole story is what makes it beautiful, not just the good bits.”
A New Chapter
Satsang released their sophomore album, Pyramid(s) in March 2017 and saw it quickly rise to No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae charts and No. 2 on the iTunes chart. The band also released a new EP, In Between Another Blink at the end of 2017 and hit it crack the top 20 on iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart. The band spent 2018 selling out two-thirds of their shows on headline tours in the Midwest, Northeast and on the Pacific Coast. Now, fresh out of the studio with their third full length studio album ready for 2019 release, they enter a new year with a quiver of new tunes and poised for more magical moments.
