Drew Ellis has been in his fair share of bands in and around St. Joseph for more then a decade. Since first picking up the bass and joining Vital Revery in 1997, he has gone on to be a part of Bear In The Ball Pit!, Same Sick Feeling, I Will Strike You and upwards to 20 plus bands and music projects. His latest experimentation, Str816, is a departure from his pop punk past but one listen to ?The Most Beautiful Girl in the World? or the just released ?Under The Stars? shows that young Mr. Ellis may have indeed found his calling.
