Originally, Kevin Drew set out to put together some songs, maybe even an album, of children’s music, featuring songs about stuff like not being afraid of the dark. As he worked on the songs, however, he found that they pointed to some heavier issues, including love, loss, and the deterioration of his mother’s body and mind. In this interview – and it is an interview despite Kevin wondering if it’s actually a therapy session – we explore mental health, music, and why Kevin had to do this show once he heard it was called Depresh Mode.
