– Our Extended Bio

The Swifts are an edgy pop-punk quartet from Denver, Colorado. The group formed in 2013 when Mike, Jim and Rob started talking about their musical influences and their interest in performing together. The original concept of the band focused on covering music from the 80s and 90s, and rearranging the tunes in an up-beat, punk style. The band has since changed gears a bit and focuses mainly on original material, these days. Their first recording, “The Swifts EP” came out in 2016, and their first full length CD, “All Sunshine” was released in 2018. The original three founding members are still part of the group, while the fourth member (the drummer) has rotated over the years. For the record… The Swifts insist that there is no Spinal Tap curse on the drummers and that spontaneous combustion almost never happens. The four members of The Swifts have very diverse musical backgrounds, but have found a common interest in original pop-punk. Mike plays guitar and is the lead vocalist with the band. He is the original “punk rocker” of the group and is still occasionally seen at the local skateboard park. Rob is the lead guitarist, and despite his calm demeanor, has toured and shredded with notable metal bands back in the day. Jim plays the bass and is occasionally found at the local hardware store, picking out his latest guitar strap (a 20lb chain). Dwayne is the latest drummer to not have spontaneously combusted. His musical background includes drumming in a bagpipe band, as well as having been a percussion instructor for a local Denver high school. So, there you have it…
