The Eye of the Storm, Maintaining Serenity in Times of Chaos
with Drew Womack
August 1, 2021
This is Live and in person at the Center
AND Live-Streamed on YouTube
Drew Womack is a lifelong singer and songwriter. He was born in Fort Worth, Texas. He left at the age of 20 and traveled throughout the US and Canada, playing guitar and singing “wherever it was fun”. He settled down somewhat after he met his wife Carla and began a family. They lived in Idyllwild, California prior to moving to Hawaii in 1999.
Drew discovered New Thought Center of Hawaii soon after his arrival, and has been part of the “music ministry” intermittently since that time. His musical style is unique. It sounds kind of like country western, but with upbeat lyrics. He has made several trips to Nashville, Tennessee, to enjoy the musical scene and make recordings. He is also a master of the Hawaiian slack key, playing his own style since 1969.
Most recently he has been exploring the music and culture of New Zealand, although the pandemic has required him to cut back on his travels temporarily. He and his wife live in South Kona in an old church which he renovated and converted to a home. He enjoys spending time with his two grown children, Kiara and Cheyenne, who also reside on the Big Island.
