Hello, my name is Drew.

Drew Gasparini is a thrilling young musician equally committed to forging a new sound in the intersection between theatre and pop, to nurturing the next generation of artists, and to throwing one hell of a party.  Drew is an award-winning musical theatre composer and lyricist, a musician and songwriter, a comedian, and a teacher. 

Named one of Playbill.com’s “Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know,” Drew is currently developing a number of new stage musicals including It’s Kind of a Funny Story for Universal Theatrical Group (book by Alex Brightman); Night Shift for Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures (book by Babaloo Mandel & Lowell Ganz); The Whipping Boy (book and co-lyrics by Brightman); We Aren’t Kids Anymore (a song cycle); and The Drum Bridge (with Brandon Ellis). Other writing projects include the infamous, award-winning Super Bowl publicity stunt Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical starring Michael C. Hall (book by Will Eno, lyrics with Nathaniel Lawler, directed by Sarah Benson); Everything in its Place: The Life and Slimes of Marc Summers, a one-man-show starring Marc Summers, and Make Me Bad (both with Brightman); Crazy, Just Like Me (2011 New York Musical Theatre Festival “Best of Fest”); Turn of the Screw and #UntitledPopMusical (both with Michael Kimmel); and songs for Hit List on the NBC television series SMASH, the children’s cooking program “Monica’s Mixing Bowl”, and Hot Mess in Manhattan (“The Text Message Song”).

Drew’s unique brand of musical theatre concerts have been performed to sold-out houses around the world, at venues ranging from the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, to Joe’s Pub and 54 Below.  In Nov 2018 he was invited to present a night of his music accompanied by the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. The popularity of his sheet music has made him a top-10 best selling artist on NewMusicalTheatre.com.

As a singer/songwriter and performer, Drew can often be found collaborating with his talented sisters, Kasie and Chloe, performing their signature brand of original folk pop as the band Saint Adeline; with his mentor Louis Sacco performing re-interpretations of jazz standards under the banner Louis & Drew; or with his three best friends—Broadway’s Alex Brightman (Beetlejuice, School of Rock), F. Michael Haynie (Frozen, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and Andrew Kober (Beautiful, Hair)—performing absurd and obscene comedy as The (M)orons. Drew began his career as a solo artist, sharing the stage with acts such as Jason Mraz, Third Eye Blind, and the Plain White T’s. He currently hosts a monthly series at Rockwood Music Hall titled Drew Gasparini & Friends where he invites this generation’s young solo artists to share the stage with him. Represented by Concord Music Publishing, he has had songs featured on TV shows such as “Gainesville” (CMT) and “The Biggest Loser” (NBC), and written jingles for Hotels.com.

And as an educator, Drew offers private vocal coaching in NYC and has been invited to lead master classes at schools across the country including Boston Conservatory, PACE University, A.C.T., and The Torggler Vocal Institute at Christopher Newport University, as well as the Guilford School of Acting in London.

Teaching

I truly enjoyed being a guest teacher in Drew’s class. He runs his class with great energy and commitment. Not surprisingly, everyone leaves the room happier and stronger in their performance skills than when they arrived.
— Stephen Flaherty

As an educator, Drew helps his students embrace their individuality as a performer through song interpretation and tone, particularly in the pop/rock and contemporary theatre genres. He cultivates a commitment to craft, while having a lot of fun.
