Swig / Bio

Hailed as "the sexy stoner rock band that Indianapolis has been missing..." SWIG offers a unique blend of Alt Rock and Blues permeated with deep grooves, impassioned vocals and smoky, sultry, undertones.

Remember that feeling you got, when you discovered a new band or song that made you feel so excited that you couldn't wait to turn your friends onto it (and claim the bragging rights for finding them first!)?? We do... and hope Swig listeners will feel the same!

We call our sound "Indie-blues", but we've also been described as Alt Rock, Indie Rock, Rock/Blues and even Stoner Rock... that made us smile! The simplest way to describe it? We're a power trio who rock by integrating and adapting all of the various styles of music that we love (and grew up on). We ARE music lovers after all! So it just feels natural to draw inspiration from all of the genres we enjoy – be it honkey tonk or blues, classic rock or funk, jazz or indie rock.
We listen, study, and (as many a blues musician) 'borrow' from the music that, as Stevie Wonder would say, "makes our hips move"!

The best way to sum it up? SWIG plays the blues with an indie rock attitude, therein the "Indie-Blues".
