Singer and songwriter Drew LaPlante a barefoot troubadour.

Singer and songwriter Drew LaPlante a barefoot troubadour; he is originally from Ohio and has recently landed in Costa Ballena. When LaPlante calls himself he turned 30, he decided it was time to move on. In 2012, he arrived in Costa Rica for the first time and, with his backpack, he spent some time in the Corcovado National Park. While he was there, surrounded by pure nature, he made up his mind to let go of all his past frustrations and insecurities, including the music he had produced before moving to Costa Rica. On his website, you will find free downloads of three of his albums.
His move to Costa Ballena prompted a new and exciting era for Drew “the music maker.” In no time, he became a surf enthusiast, and when he is not surfing, he is writing new songs, working with graphic design, and video productions.
Drew and his fellow musicians entertain the audiences with their lovely creations. We asked him about his music style: “Currently, I am shifting from folk rock to folktronica, a genre incorporating dance rhythms. We use computer technology when we record music in our studio,” he said.
He feels his infectious music allows him to mold the moment and uplift his listeners’ vibrational field.
This summer you will have the opportunity to experience Drew’s music at Tortilla Flats, Jolly Roger, and several other venues. He came; he played, he and conquered the appreciation of his public along the coast.
Pura Vida, Drew!
