Dr. Draw is the stage moniker of Eugene Draw, a Canadian experimental electric violinist. Dr. Draw often plays with his band composed of a guitarist, an electronic keyboardist, an electric harpist, an electric cellist, a rock bassist, and a drummer. Dr. Draw is known as the first ever violinist to venture from rock and classical into electronic club culture. Dr. Draw is recognized for his energy on stage and his transcendence of musical boundaries. Recently, his reputation has grown eastward. Performances have included playing in Singapore and a spate of Louis Vuitton events in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and South Korea. During the World Expo in Shanghai, China in the summer of 2010, Eugene was asked to represent Canada. His performances wowed audiences there, and translated to a major success for Draw while furthering his exposure worldwide. Performing in such frenetic locales energizes the performer all over again allowing him to “creatively interact with cultures all across the world.” The result is a constantly evolving musical style that brings together the seemingly disparate elements of classical violin, jazz-rock fusion, folk and pop into a riveting masala that feeds the soul and invigorates audiences.
