"Hello, this is hard for me to say. As of today, I (Drew) am leaving behind a important thing to me that can not be what it wants to be or continue to be any longer. I am leaving Navigator. I leave it at that and thank you for your ears. Be on the look out for continuing projects. thanks. -Drew"
Josh Levi: How did the band come together?
Drew Gowran: Originally it started as Curtis Tinsley with just an acoustic guitar later using an electric and adding me doing brush work and light playing. It started as a two-piece last winter and grew to be more full of pop and louder material. Curtis asked me to join and I was very interested since we knew each other for years and have never done anything before other than heavier projects growing up playing Lemp Arts Center a lot.
What does the future hold for you and Curtis, separately?
This is my end in Navigator, but the band will continue with Curtis Tinsley and whoever he may use to accompany him. I plan to stay busy with Little Big Bangs this summer in full effect. I suppose that is all I can add to that.
What advice do you have in regards to the general inner workings and relationships of a band?
Communication is key to hold a band together. Always let each other know how you are feeling about what you're doing. Share records with each other and compliment each other after shows. It's like having a relationship. Never avoid each other.
