Never Shout Never
Never Shout Never
Youth, as they say, is wasted on the young. Christofer Drew kindly refutes that conceit.

At the ripe age of 24, Drew and his band Never Shout Never released their seventh full-length album BLACKCAT on August 7th, 2015. The concept of the black cat is akin to that of the black sheep, a role Drew embodied as a creative youth with wild hair and tattoos coming of age both in tiny Joplin, Missouri, and then around the world with Never Shout Never performing 3 times as a main stage act on the Vans Warped Tour, Nationally in every venue from small clubs to larger Theatres, and then internationally spanning 5 continents. Drew began writing these songs in 2013, and brought an arsenal of tunes with him to the studio in 2014. Working over several months with producer Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Modest Mouse, The Hives, etc). And now he and the band are excited to put together a tour of great musicians to bring the album to full life for a major market headline tour across 29 cities this coming January and February 2016.

The black cat has learned to accept his differences and embrace his unique place in the universe. And he's thriving.
Me Like Bees
Me Like Bees
Me Like Bees is an indie/alternative rock band from Joplin, Missouri and is made up of Pete Burton (lead guitar), Nick Bynum (bass), Luke Sheafer (vocals/guitar), and Timothy Cote (drums).

Formed in May of 2009, the group has developed their sound with influences from bands such as Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire and The White Stripes. The "Me Like Bees" sound, like many of their influences, is based upon the idea of moving music forward with interesting and simple melodies. Although simple, the band maintains the listeners' attention using irregular dynamics and asymmetric song structure. The group takes a quality control approach to songwriting, with each member bringing their own creative ideals to every aspect of the process.

The lyrics of Me Like Bees music are both thought provoking and entertaining, with a wide range of themes. Many of their songs discuss matters of inner turmoil, and relate to issues like guilt and doubt. Sheafer is known for his creative wording and unique use of syllables; often times giving a positive spin on what would otherwise be depressing subject matter. His singing style has been said to be a cross between Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse and Jack White of the White Stripes.
