Drew McManus is the lead singer and songwriter for the band Satsang, which is a Sanskrit word meaning “in the company of truth.”
It’s a beautiful moment when music from the heart and poetry from the soul truly connects with its intended audience. For Drew, that moment occurred on a 2018 tour through the Midwest, Northeast and Pacific Coast in which two-thirds of the band’s dates sold out. That’s when the truth hits home for McManus that his soulful, reggae-infused blend of folk-rock and melodic hip hop and its message of strength, growth and resilience is his testimony to the world – and the world is finally listening.
Satsang, in its few short years, has headlined or shared the stage with Michael Franti & Spearhead, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Trevor Hall, Wookiefoot, and many others while also playing several Yoga and music festivals like Wanderlust. The band is currently enjoying the success of its 2019 release, Kulture, a collection of songs representing the culmination of all the Satsang’s influences.
