Swilly is an indie rock band (fronted by singer/songwriter Steven Williams) who record, produce and master all our own material. We believe in laughing our asses off and having fun first and that’s quite evident by our lyrics. As the saying goes, "if you love what you do you will never work a day in your life." A good work ethic doesn’t hurt either. With that being said, this is one expensive business and most investors would laugh at the cost of bringing a music project to fruition.
The majority of our music is blues-based, classic rock and we’ll often collaborate with different artists from around the world. We recorded two songs with Klaus Passegger, an instrumental guitarist from Austria. He’s a hell of a guitar player so look out for him! Kevin Campbell also contributes a lot of lead guitar and he has a real talent for bringing Swilly songs to life.
After attending Berklee, our drummer Carl Holz was part of the Washington, DC music scene, playing with some excellent bands and touring a lot. Since moving to Colorado in the '90s, he's continued to tour some, including Asia, record a lot and play with some other great bands. Presently, he's an online session drummer and freelance gigging drummer.
