Singer songwriter Justin Swafford formed The Sapwoods with guitarist David Suchan as a device to tell stories about life, love, and the wandering spirit; not to mention to pursue his love of sound and to examine music through the visceral moments of life that become stories that stick with you. The Sapwoods hail from Iowa City and the music they make has a focus on song-writing, catchy melodies, guitars that go from jangle to full out fuzz, punchy organ and keys, classic pop inflections, and vocal harmonies. They unapologetically float between musical styles while maintaining their pop sensibilities, the influence of mid-2000's indie music on their lives, and their roots growing up in an era where razor sharp rock guitar was king.
