Swansgate formed in High Point, NC, where the band members grew up together. They are led by the incredibly talented composer and pianist, Art Draughn.
Swansgate relocated to Charlotte, NC in 2017 and are currently recording new music. Their style is described by many as Art Rock, as it is hard to pin down more specific sub-genres due to their diverse song set. It's easier to describe their sound as jazzy, progressive, psychedelic, and rhythmic. Swansgate are rapidly gaining more & more recognition in the NC music scene due to their super musicianship and unique compositions. Their most recent single, "Dusk Forever (Hazel Eyes)", features synthesizers, pianos, horns, and more to create a diverse sound that really evokes the themes of the song.
