nevershoutnever!Christofer Drew, the brainchild behind the Joplin, Mo. Cinderella story nevershoutnever! is a prime example of how the internet has become the kind of marketing tool today that MTV was in the 1980’s.

Averaging 20,000 hits a day for streams of music from an EP recorded in his basement, Drew showed the world that with the help of MySpace and great word of mouth, anyone with worthwhile work ethic can start a monumental snowball effect towards success. Drew went from from self recording to headlining midwest tours to having his tracks featured in radio markets like 107.7 The End, based out of Seattle, Wa. Of course, playing dates in support of Meg and Dia and Jamestown Story probably haven’t hurt his numbers either.

nevershoutnever! appear to be aimed in the direction of a bright future. The group plans to launch it’s Yippee EP in July, followed by a tour in support of the release. Fans of The All American Rejects and Dashboard Confessional will love this EP for its poppy structures and reaching vocals, while supporters of the Augustana movement will be able to get behind the cut’s catchy piano work. But you don’t have to take my word for it, as Popwreckoning has been blessed with the ability to launch an exclusive stream of Yippee‘s final track “dare4distance,” for fans of the band and our site to discover. You can find it here:
