Bio

Janet Drew and Hamp Brockman’s original songs make the world a better place if only by making it a more comfortable place to be. Having been raised by folks who went to the cellar for food instead of the store, Janet’s songs offer a reminder of how unencumbered life can be. Together, they stroke the deep longings of our collective unconscious and confront such monsters as addiction and mental illness with brave simplicity. Janet and Hamp are both formally trained, accomplished musicians, but Hamp’s chops are superior. Even the best players turn their heads and notice when he takes his ride. Hamp Brockman and Janet Drew posses more than 40 years of combined performing experience. They display a heartwarming synergy that gladdens the heart and offer the delicious sound of two voices that blend like tea and honey.
Hamp is an excellent side man, having appeared on Kerrville’s main stage with Tom Prasada Rao, and on recordings with Jim Keaveny, Mike Cooper, and Janet Drew. He is also a frequent “sit in” with San Antonio’s Circle Band (Celebration Circle).
Janet is a seasoned folk singer, having played Texas folk venues for 20 years. She has opened for Steve Seskin, Christine Albert, and Michael McNevin and performed with the new thought band, The Light Travelers. Hamp and Janet have opened together for Shake Russell and appeared with Jack Motley and Friends on Kerrville’s Threadgill stage during the 2011 work weekend.
Their favorite collaboration by far both in music and in life is each other.
