Drake grew up on 40 acres of land that had been in his family for three generations. While studying Sacred Music at Union Un­i­ver­si­ty in Jackson, Tennessee, he became interested in sustaining the church’s hymnody, and developed a love for poetry. In 2001, he went to pursue postgraduate studies in Musicology at the Un­i­ver­si­ty of Glas­gow, Scot­land, where he graduated with a M.Mus. in 2003. As of 2006, he was pursuing his Ph.D. on late 15th Cen­tu­ry Latin motets. He teaches Humanities and Music Theory at Grove City College, Penn­syl­van­ia, and worships at the Rocky Springs Pres­by­ter­i­an Church in Harrisville.
