Drury is the songwriter's songwriter. While I'm a dabbler in writing stuff myself, the pros I spoke with afterward agreed with me -- as I listened to Drury's set I kept kicking myself for not writing these songs first. Not that I think I can approach her skill, but because she's just so damn good at capturing universal experiences. I know that, writing that out, that's a stupid thing to say about a songwriter -- I think you'll just have to listen to see what I mean. I don't know if anyone ever feels this way, but there are times when I hear a song for the first time that resonates with me so much, I feel like I already know the words. That was my experience during the entirety of Drury's set.
If you want to get an idea of her music before you listen, I hear influences of folk singer-songwriters like Ani DiFranco and the Indigo Girls, with, of course, some New Orleans swagger. But the music feels like a backdrop to Drury's real talent: connecting with other people.
