Episode 67: Drew Smith

Drew Smith has a magical voice and is quite the skilled song writer. Playing in The Bicycles, his solo moniker, Doctor Ew, and now his new band, Bunny, Drew has been a staple in the Toronto music scene as a man who can bring the Beach Boys style pop harmonies to very soulful, fun tunes.
