Graham Drew, from London, UK, started playing at the age of 13, starting out in a school band as bassist. After spending several years into his early/mid 20's playing bass for various groups in and around London he switched to guitar in 1994, playing in the female fronted rock band Jade Fox between 1996 and 2003.

After playing guitar in several bands and then fronting the Pink Floyd tribute band ECHOES for two years in the David Gilmour role of lead guitarist and lead vocalist he returned to the bass when he joined the Washington DC area alt-rock band, drumfish, in 2011 and in the process has rediscovered his first love - the electric bass.

I'm proud to be part of the Nordstrand family.
