With two full time jobs and multiple business ventures, Orion Swift is probably the busiest person you know. Despite a full schedule, he is disciplined and committed to creating music, recording vocal tracks to his 2020 EP, “Wage Peace,”* in his car on an iPhone XR during the time between his working hours. *Wage Peace produced by MPM Producer   Born in Seattle in December 1990, no one was surprised when a 13-year-old Orion co-formed Seattle death metal/grindcore band Immortal Divination with his father. By 14 he was playing his first show with the band at Seattle’s El Corazon.   After 15 years of making music Orion embraced his given name and started playing dark rap in 2019. In his first year, Orion released a handful of singles including “Invocations” and a song inspired by a ride home with his grandpa after leaving his grandma’s hospital bedside. “Road to Freedom” which came to him as a way to start a conversation and shine a light on a growing problem in America.   Today, he’s taken his expertise of various genres and molded them into what he defines as Dark Rap. In this subject, he notes, “There is a small pioneering class of artists doing a similar thing, but my unique POV, musical background, and business/marketing sense cultivated in the growing Natural Products industry allows me to stay fresh and innovative from a holistic perspective.’   Orion is ready to make an impact on the global music scene through diverse underground music.
