If you’ve ever watched Twitch, you have almost certainly heard of Bishu, one of the top 0.1% most-watched and highest-earning musicians on the multi-billion-dollar livestreaming platform. Having started down the path of a more traditional music career as a touring musician releasing on labels such as Mad Decent, Monstercat, and Dim Mak, Drew quickly realized his passion was for creating music and content and less so for running through airports and sleeping in motels on the road. He decided to take a bold step and forgo his touring career to instead focus on streaming live on Twitch and uploading videos to YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, and other digital platforms.
With recurring shows such as Fake Genres and Bishbattles, sponsorships from top tier brands in the music software and gaming industries, and a rapidly growing presence across all major digital media platforms driven by a combination of consistent content distribution and regular viral moments, Bishu is pioneering a new business model for the independent artist that promotes an artist’s physical and mental health, financial security, and career stability, all without having to leave his front door.
Now, he’s back with a sun soaked single “No Rush”, teaming up with iconic vocal collective Nevve. The song feels like a summer anthem through and through, with glistening melodies and a uplifting arrangement sure to move your feet and spread a smile across your face.
“I started this song with a completely different vocal, I was stoked on the production and really wanted it to see the light of day. However, something happened with that vocal (it was already taken or used), so the song was pretty much dead in the water. Until I received the Nevve vocal. I pitched it up a little bit and it somehow just worked. Pumped to have this out!” – Bishu
