Christofer Drew Ingle (born February 11, 1991), better known by his stage name Never Shout Never,[2] is an American acoustic pop musician.


Ingle began making music as NeverShoutNever! in September 2007. His first exposure came through the internet, where he achieved success on MySpace before issuing the The Yippee EP on July 29, 2008.[7] On July 30, 2008, he was featured on TRL, where he performed his single 'Bigcitydreams'.[8] He toured with Hellogoodbye and Ace Enders in the fall of 2008.[9]

As of November 17, 2008, the official spelling of Ingle's alias became NeverShoutNever! It had previously been listed as Never Shout Never on iTunes and his management company's site.[10] An official statement regarding the reason behind the spelling change has not been made available. In an interview, Ingle revealed that there is no longer an exclamation point after his name and that he will spell NeverShoutNever as one word when he is feeling happy, but three words when he isn't.[11] Warner Bros. Records spelled his name as "Never Shout Never" for the release of What Is Love?.

Never Shout Never started touring with The Scene Aesthetic, The Honorary Title, and The Bigger Lights in late February 2009[12] and then toured with bands such as Forever the Sickest Kids, The Cab, and Mercy Mercedes, among others in spring 2009 as part of The Bamboozle Roadshow 2009.[13] He played at both The Bamboozle Left 2009[14] and The Bamboozle 2009.[15]

The next EP from Never Shout Never was released on June 23, 2009.[16] The first single off the EP was released on iTunes on March 3, 2009.[17]

It was announced on May 29, 2009, that Ingle had signed to Warner Bros. Records, ending a major-label bidding war.[1] As part of the deal, Ingle will run and make releases on his own imprint label, Loveway Records.[18]

The debut mini-album from Never Shout Never, What Is Love?, was produced by Butch Walker.[3][19]

In October 2010, Christofer announced in an interview with Phoenix New Times that he would like to drop the name 'Never Shout Never' and become 'Christofer Drew and the Shout' because he is "sick of this band and the negative connotations with the band." He is also planning to switch from acoustic to more "feel-good rock-n-roll" music. [20]

Ingle follows a strict vegan diet.[21] His music career caused him to drop out of his high school, Joplin Senior High, before graduation.[22]
