Drew Landry: Cajun Heartbreaker



Drew Landry, crawfisher turned oil field worker, steals the show the first Town Hall meeting of the Presidential Oil Commission. In the song he pleads about just wanting a job and how hard it is to make a living. Well Drew, I don't t'ink you need to worry 'bout dat no mo!

VIA Gawker

UPDATED: Well it turns out he's more of a musician than he is a crawfisher/oil rig worker. This doesn't make him any less of a songwriter/singer for a cause, but it does make the story a little less genuine when it seems he might have been using the platform to actually get himself a record deal and not JUST for the people of the Gulf Coast. I'm still gonna check out his music though. The song i'm listening to right now is about the WWF and the chorus is about the Junk Yard Dog, so it can't be all that bad. The Dirty Cajuns

Drew has not had a steady job in the 10 years I've known him. He persistently shows up wherever there are national cameras in hopes he will be "discovered"....a ploy he's been using since Hurricane Katrina. He never has any solutions...only points out the problem, says he wants to help and then whips out his guitar. He cannot headline a gig in his hometown anymore because club owners know that only a handful of his friends will ever show up, so he gathers up name talent for "causes" in order that he can be the opening act for artists that people actually want to see.

Truthmeister said...

....even if he WAS a crawfisherman, his plea for their cause is an empty one. Crawfish farmers in Louisiana (for the most part) are not affected by the Gulf. They gather their quarry well in-shore. Since the media has taken over the Gulf shores, Drew has been there in hopes of getting NOTICED...his main intent, always. He's hustled himself on to CNN and other networks over the past weeks for this very purpose. Would have respect for him if he did this sort of thing without dragging his guitar around.

I smell haters. Some of what you are spewing may have a grain of truth, but you sound like some jealous, green-with-envy pussies to me. Get a life and be happy for Drew. He now has a voice that can reach the masses and hopefully make a difference for the people being decimated by this spill. Let me guess Truthmeister, you are an aspiring singer/songwriter from Lafayette who deep down knows that you have no chance of success, and Drew's accomplishments make you insecure....

i agree that there could be some truth w/ "truthmeister's" thoughts, however some of your logic is a bit backwards.

if i were a singer songwriter (or had a craft that i was equally passionate about), there's nothing that would prevent me from "draggin' my guitar around" w/ me everywhere i go!!

contrary to any of drew's intentions in the past, i believe that his actions are sincere, and that his heart is in the right place.

to me, anything that comes from his recent brush with fame is a direct correlation between how he used to be as a human being, and how he's transitioned (thinking less of himself, and more of others).

you ought to try it sometime "truthie"...use drew as a positive example, instead of tearing him down. it might change your life for the better.

I'd like to address the haters ... If you are interested in hearing about what's happening on the Gulf I'd like to post an update on this blog.

First, I am obviously a songwriter & have spend the last decade of my life struggling between touring, booking shows, working in the Atchafalaya Basin, and this past year helping my friends on the Gulf coast..

For most of the last decade I worked for long time friend & mentor Greg Guirard in Catahoula, La. My time there is spent running crawfish traps, pulling sinker cypress, and helping tend to the thousands of trees he's planted over the years. It rare when you can work for one of your heros.

The problem with the crawfish in the basin is that companies never fixed the spoil banks when digging canals. Because the natural flow of water is limited, countless crawfish die in traps due to low oxygen.

This year most of the water that would be in the basin has been sent down the Mississippi to keep the oil in the Gulf. So, the issue is not oxygen in the water, but that water levels are historically low

BP has settled with many who crawfish, so the fear is we will get no water this year.... That's a complicated issue.

I've had some success in music and was "discovered" long before this TV spot... turning down recoring contracts, touring the country at major venues, playing jazz fest,& charting twice in the UK.


As for media ploys and the Oil Spill Comission- I signed up to speak in the public comment section and was thrown out of the meeting for asking questions & having a back pack. My friends there had heard my song & suggested I go back with my guitar. So, I dropped off my pack & left the guitar case in the car. I told the young lady from Colorado in charge of the speakers my problem. She got me back through security to deliver my message and song.

I was contacted by most of the major networks after the hearing & had no interest siding with either political faction. What I did do was sign a deal to record the single & give 75% back to the Gulf.

I will continue to fight for coastal citizens that have the courage to stand up for the truth and deal with the long term effects of this spill. Our main focus is dealing with the health issues associated with COREXIT and making clean air and water human rights...
PS- you will hear this again, "the Solution to Pollution is you and Me"

Thank You,
Drew Landry

The old-saw contractual principle of music "delivery" often finds the artist required to hand over documents to the label, as well as physical materials such as the album itself in the form of masters, digital masters, or "glass masters", in order to get paid. By virtue of a contractually-delineated procedure vetted by and between entertainment attorneys, the label may be entitled to hold some (or even all) monies back, and not pay those monies to the artist until "delivery is complete" under the delivery clauses and delivery schedule in a contract.

Keto Extreme These days, people take unhealthy fast foods that affect their health badly and thus increasing the fat level to increase everyday. Junk foods and spicy foods are dangerous to your health. They increases the fat accumulation process in your body and will harm you in the long run. When the fat level increases, it affects the normal systems of your body. The blood pressure level of your body fluctuates if you have excessive fat in your body. It also affects the normal blood sugar level. It even causes cardiac arrests and cerebral strokes if the fat level goes to a certain level. You must be conscious about the major ill effects of increased fat level in your body.

Once you know what foods to avoid and what to include in your diet, you will be eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle altogether.
