Swell Daze / Bio

"Simple Fix" - Available now! -
Produced by Jim Ebert
Engineered by Sean Russell
Mastered by Vlado Meller

The “Swell Daze” sound is a crisp three part harmony-driven blend of classic and modern rock. The band maintains pop sensibilities while staying true to their rock and roll roots. On their debut album, the band draws influences from artists across multiple genres and decades. Swell Daze crafts a signature sound with strong lead vocals, melodic lead guitar solos, and a tight and intricate rhythm section. Their live shows are explosively energetic, however the band portrays the cultivated class and distinctive stage presence you would expect from seasoned veterans. Since 2011, the band has been gigging relentlessly in the mid-atlantic region playing festivals, bars, and private and charitable events. Live, the band prefers to play cuts from their debut album, however they also draw from a repertoire consisting of over three hours of classic and modern covers.

What's New with Swell Daze:

Several songs from their self titled debut album have been used in episodes of "Best Ink" on the Bravo, Oxygen, Universal and Cloo TV networks.

Their song "Hooked" has been used extensively by the Discovery Channel on episodes of "Saint Hoods" and "Gold Rush the Dirt".

“Hooked,” with its driving guitars and infectious wooo-ooohs, is a hit single that is sure to get stuck in your head. It has all the components for a rock song that will be embraced by fans of all ages and genders and screams to be placed in an EA sports video game soundtrack.”
