Steeped in the traditions of roots music, the journey of country songwriter Sterling Drake has taken him from the Big Cypress of south Florida to the mountains of western Montana and everywhere in between. With a penchant for honest storytelling, Sterling weaves his own perspective into the American songbook, often highlighting a strong sense of place through both natural imagery and cultural context.

With influences ranging from Willie Nelson to Lead Belly, the wells of inspiration for this young artist are as diverse as American music itself. Sterling’s live shows are a kaleidoscope, often reflecting the countless styles that have colored his repertoire. 

Spurred on by a passion for the cowboy lifestyle, in 2024 Sterling is teaming up with nonprofit land conservation and mental health advocacy groups to help address issues impacting the ranching community.

As a risk-taking traditionalist, Sterling seeks to bridge the old and the new through his art. Sterling’s artistic journey is one of continual personal growth and self-discovery, served for those who seek to carve their own path.
