Drew Sisera is a singer, songwriter and photographer with a wanderlust which has brought him all over the world. He has incorporated his art throughout all of his travels. For the past five years traveling across Canada, Taiwan, and currently Thailand, the Oakville, Ontario artist says he wanders, “… to gain a deeper understanding of all things that offer more potential for artistic expression.”
In addition to amassing a stunning portfolio of photos (available on his website), through his travels Drew Sisera has composed and performed music with musicians around the globe. One song in particular became a canvas upon which Drew set a scene and then he and an international cast of musicians added color.
“Coming Home” is the debut single from Drew Sisera, released worldwide to all major streaming services on April 11, 2022. Over two years in the making, the song evolved in both structure and meaning as the singer continued on his journey. Originally written as an anniversary present to his partner at the time, after the relationship ended the track transformed lyrically into a wistful look back at all things ‘home’, both good and bad.
The track opens with Drew alone performing a melancholy Dark Pop piano ballad. He sings both parts of a haunting harmony as an ensemble of bass, drums, guitar and strings enter the mix. The narrative is broken into two parts. Through the first half of the song, Drew is homesick and happy to enter what he thinks is a trusting relationship. After a particularly nice Clapton-esque Blues/Rock guitar solo we enter the relationship post-mortem in which ‘coming home’ becomes a metaphor for returning to a toxic space.
