In the beginning of their career on 2007, Sashi was asked to play as a regular acoustic cover version band at LOCA! Coffee House, Kemang. Not knowing any other musician available, Sashi Gandarum called Putra Praditya and Aji Yudo from her old band to join her and form a new band. DREW is taken from Hollywood’s Drew Barrymore. Meant to portray a one syllable unisex real person’s name, and of course their admiration of Barrymore herself.
Playing as an acoustic cover band for 3 years, bar and lounge hopping around Kemang, with one single out; “Unromantic”(released by Nubuzz Network in Nubuzz 1.1 Compilation album), DREW became more eager to make their own music. Rishanda Singgih joined the band in early 2009 and they start working on their own music seriously.
