Dru Cutler releases "Bring Closer The Distance" LP

Dru Cutler took the stage at Pianos on April 7th to release his newest LP, Bring Closer The Distance. The record marks a shift in lyrical content and production value for Cutler, who debuted in 2016 with the album Familiar. On Bring Closer The Distance, Cutler reaches out through his words to people who shaped him throughout his life, including his father who lives with bipolar disorder and his estranged stepmother. In songs like the thundering "Oceanside", which has hints of U2 and Bob Dylan, Cutler comes to terms with his reality and place in a conflicted world. Speaking of Dylan: Bring Closer The Distance showcases the mastering genius of engineer Dave McNair, who worked with Dylan and David Bowie, as well as mixing engineer Andy Taub, who has worked with Keith Richards and Ani DiFranco. Dru will host a vinyl listening party with intimate acoustic performance at Noho Sound on April 13. Stream single "Oceanside" below. - Will Sisskind

A NYC Songwriter to keep an ear on: Dru Cutler plays Radio Bushwick on 10.10

Hailing from Tampa, FL, Dru Cutler is an eclectic songwriter that now calls Brooklyn home. His debut single "you and me and the system" (video here) is an extremely well produced, atmospheric mid tempo, featuring an unusual melody that resolves in a hummed, evocative chorus. Side B "train" is a bluesier number that confirm Dru's preference for slower tempos and intimate atmospheres. The more recent single "Familiar" almost veers towards the Pink Floyd ascetic pop of the "Whish You Were Here" years, although the lyrics are kept down to earth - actually focused on day to day life and love in NYC. Dru Cutler will be performing at Radio Bushwick tomorrow 10.10
