Last month, I had the incredible opportunity to attend the 27th annual South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin, Texas. Started in 1987 with around 700 attendees, the music conference has now grown to become the world’s largest festival of its kind. More than 2,200 official performers play in 100+ venues within five days, attracting 82,000+ attendees. SXSW unites bands, brands, artists, journalists, industry types, street performers, opportunists and music enthusiasts from all over the world.

In 2002, a bright-eyed, 22-year-old singer-songwriter decided he needed a new name: A stage name. He gave himself the moniker of Drew Danburry, hit the road with his guitar and never looked back.

Twelve years touring the United States and 700 shows later, a lot has changed for Mr. Danburry. He got married, became a father and settled down in Utah County. He bought a house and opened up a small business.
