Swamp Music Players are a retro futuristic swamp band with a passion for the Swamp genres of music and Cosmic American Music. We especially enjoy the crossroads of the late 70’s and early 80’s when good ole time Rock’N’Roll was cool again and co-existing with transistor technology.
We like the authentic and honest music of the past and attempt to move it forward in a cinematic style influenced by how past generations envisioned the 21st century in both movies and pop-culture. We are a diverse group and collaborate with both local and international artists. Our music art projects have a strong thematic and theatrical edge. We aim to entertain and provide lots of depth to our projects and bring both seasoned artists as well as outsider artists aboard.
We started out July 4th 2010 as a rotational lineup putting on a few charity shows or to raise work-retraining for our Louisiana penpal "Swamp Girl". SMP as a collective slowly put together a self-titled album by December 2012 and by July 4th 2013 what would become a band began to gel.
On May 12th 2015 we launched our sophomore album "Timeless Cool" and launched a new live show at the release party at the historic "Railway Club" in downtown Vancouver. RJ Comer a Los Angeles music insider and notable swamp musician flew up to perform in Victoria and Vancouver. RJ is just one of several VIPs that were willing to be on the album "Timeless Cool". VIPs such as London UK musicians Wily Bo Walker, NatGeo TV personality and humorist Jason Murphy.
Timeless Cool album has gone on to be on the Canadian charts in Hamilton and Kingston Ontario. We released in late 2015 our single "Warrior" recorded and produced by award winning Wynn Gogol which has been on the charts in The Netherlands.
