Aug. 5, 2010 - PRLog -- August 5, 2010 (Richmond, VA) — Following the release of a new solo-acoustic set of demo recordings, Richmond, Va.-based songwriter Drew Vass (VASS) has since been featured in several U.K.-based podcast series.

“It was very telling,” Vass explains. “After making my debut album [rudimentary] available I received absolutely no play time or attention from productions. That isn’t necessarily my goal as a songwriter, but you would like to receive some interest from this segment.”

The prospect of performing on a solo-acoustic basis led Vass to rethink many of his arrangements. The resulting acoustic demo tracks, he says, are a more accurate representation of his goals as a songwriter.

“The day after I added this acoustic set, which is many of the same songs [found on rudimentary], but arranged and performed quite differently, I was suddenly being played,” Vass says.

After adding his new versions to an international database, the very next day Vass says he woke to a message notifying him that he had been aired on the popular U.K.-based Dalecast series. Subsequent airings followed, all in other U.K.-based productions. Vass says he accepts this interest as a sign that he is headed in the right direction.

“I had an incredibly positive feeling when I got done with these re-writes,” he explains. “When I went back and listened to them, I felt like I had finally discovered myself in some weird way. I’m much more comfortable with this sound.”

About VASS: In a world where alt. country borders on formulaic, Drew Vass is a good dose of real. The Va.-based songwriter offers an organic formula that's all his own. He has been described as a "living double entendre," and his lyrics have solicited such critical comments as: "Never take anything this man writes at face value. His work always warrants a second glance - preferably over a glass of whiskey."
