Never Shout Never In The Studio With Butch Walker

(Warner Bros) Christofer Drew, the 18-year-old singer-songwriter and guitarist who records under the alias Never Shout Never, is putting the finishing touches on his first Sire Records full-length album with noted producer Butch Walker (Weezer, Katy Perry, Pete Yorn). Recorded in both Los Angeles and London (at the world-famous Abbey Road Studio), the as-yet-untitled album will be released by Sire / Loveway Records in 2010.

Drew will hit the road this fall for a series of headlining dates, culling tunes for his set from his upcoming album, as well as from the three EP's he released on his own Loveway Records, including his latest, The Summer EP, which broke into the iTunes Top 10 Album chart in June. Carter Hulsey and Now Now Every Children will provide support on the bill. In November, Drew will hit the road with Dashboard Confessional for a nationwide support tour. Please see below for all dates.

Never Shout Never is the brainchild of Drew, who was born in San Diego but spent most of his life in Joplin, MO, where he resides when not touring. In 2008, he began writing and recording songs in his basement and self-released The Yippee EP, which has sold more than 30,000 copies and hundreds of thousands of individual tracks. As an unsigned artist, Never Shout Never quickly built a grassroots following via MySpace, where it has been one of the site's top artists for more than a year, averaging more than 100,000 plays a day and racking up more than 77 million total plays.

In October and November 2008, Never Shout Never hit the road with Hellogoodbye, during which time he befriended lead singer Forrest Kline, who produced The Summer EP at his home studio in Long Beach, CA. Never Shout Never then released a second EP, Me & My Uke EP in January 2009 and embarked on a U.S. headlining tour with The Scene Aesthetic, The Honorary Title, and The Bigger Lights with bassist Taylor McFee and drummer Nathan Ellison, followed by the Bamboozle Road Show Tour with We The Kings and Forever The Sickest, among others. Never Shout Never has been on the road all summer including a week on the Vans Warped Tour and on tour with Boys Like Girls and The Ready Set.
