Daryl Swartwood




All-original pop rock recalling the days when solid, simple groove and melodic pop sensibility held more value than flash and formula, when feel meant more than perfection, when thunderous drums and pounding bass were the true measure of excitement in a live band, when guitar solos were mandatory, the lyrics were understood, and just a touch of self-indulgent free-form jam never hurt anyone.
