Swear and Shake bring an experience to the stage—a combination of truthful lyrics, passionate performance, and a warming narrative. We hope you can add their upcoming show to your online listings/calendar and possibly cover it in a pre or post show article, blurb or review. If you would like to conduct an interview or host a ticket giveaway, I would be happy to put you in touch with the band or offer you tickets.
Nashville represented change for the band, and enabled them to write their second full-length record, The Sound of Letting Go. During the writing process, the band was heavily influenced by the intricate marriage of band and orchestral arrangements found in baroque pop (think: Beach Boys – Pet Sounds, or The Zombies – Odessey and Oracle) and discovered Richmond-based production house Spacebomb (Natalie Prass, Matthew E. White, Julien Baker) to help realize their musical ambitions.
Funded by the overwhelming support of their fans and friends on PledgeMusic to create a 10 track LP (13 track deluxe) that speaks to the band’s experiences of being on tour, and growing as an independent artist. Swear and Shake will release the full album on June 2, 2017.
Providing direct support for a number of notable acts including The Lumineers, Ingrid Michaelson, Delta Rae, American Authors, G. Love and Special Sauce, and ZZ Ward, Swear and Shake are poised to take America by storm.
