Swimming with Bears
Through a little trial and error Swimming With Bears was established as a side project to another band the guys were in around 2011. With Joe Perry now on lead vox (and also bass) SWB inspired by a new style of sound, along with the guitars of Alec Conte and Jonathan Kerr with Ryan Hannasch on drums, went on to write their first 5 song EP recorded at Droplink studios in Austin, TX 2011, released 2012. With the EP completed and seeing the great response it received, SWB went on the hunt for shows, exposure and possible ways to record their first full feature album which they accomplished after meeting Matt Noveskey of Blue October who offered to work with the band as producer of their first album. After successfully raising $20k from their debut album's kickstarter campaign in 2012 and getting Matt as their new producer, the guys hit Austin's own Test Tube Audio with audio engineer Kevin Butler behind the board. Their debut album "Paw" is due to release Spring 2014 and is streaming at soundcloud.com now. Since recording their album the band has gone on a short Texas based tour opening for Austin's own Language Room and also was afforded the opportunity to also open for Blue October in November of 2014. Recently the band was featured in American music magazine "Alternative Press" in their AP&R section as a special selection by the Alternative Press Reps Austin, TX. Looking forward to 2014, SWB is looking to go on tour in support of their first album and keep pushing forward to spread their alternative soul sound across the nation.
