Local singer-songwriter and burgeoning country star Drew Six
has been trying his luck in Nashville lately: writing and performing; going to label parties; watching fashion shows with Tiffany and the LoCash Cowboys; and generally doing his best to promote his music, his brand and himself. Six has soul for days. "Country and soul are close cousins," he says. "This is the kind of music that you feel. It's just in me. I don't have to look for it. I just have to let go and feel it." Fortunately for KC, Six still hangs out and plays his guitar, and sings dreamy music influenced by Chris Isaak, Keith Urban and John Mellancamp. See him at 8 p.m., and the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, at 77 South (5041 West 135th Street, in Leawood, 913-742-7727). "I play to the crowd but I also make a point of piloting the plane rather than just riding along," he says of his three-hour set. See youtube.com/drewsix
