Biography

Shwill was born in Washington D.C. and grew up living in Virginia. He chose to pursue an interest in music, starting with Surf Rock on a 12 string Fender Acoustic, later developing a taste for distortion and sounds like Nirvana and Silverchair.

Shwill's style is a cross of good ole rock n' roll, grunge, 60's brit psych-pop, blues, punk, hip-hop and groove, matched with catchy melodies and experimental styles. His songs excel in production quality and talent, as well as song structure and editing.

Shwill uses an array of electric guitars, a Fender 12 string, a Silvertone 6 string acoustic, a Carlo Robelli Jumbo 6 string acoustic, rackmount effects units, Congas/Bongos and hand drums of all sizes, drum and beat machines, loop sequencers, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, GarageBand, Logic, Fruity Loops and Nuendo, experimental editing methods, Mary Jane and many other, more confidential techniques and boxes.

Lyrics

Man Invisible

Written By: Shwill

To be a Man Invisible
To not be seen
To be a Man Invisible
As you walk over me

As i slowly fade form view
As I slowly slip from you
My only happiness is my ignorance
Fall in a hole for a while and
I'm happy again

To be a Man Invisible
To avoid the ridicule
To be a Man Invisible
To not know the truth

As i slowly fade form view
As I slowly slip from you
My only happiness is my ignorance
Fall in a hole for a while and
I'm happy again

To be a Man Invisible
To not be seen
To be a Man Invisible
As you walk over me

As i slowly fade form view
As I slowly slip from you
My only happiness is my ignorance
Fall in a hole and get high and
I'm happy again

To be a Man Invisible

(ranting at Jason from Chicago)

Written By: Shwill

Well I'm down to the very end
Of my Bottle of Whisky
And i spent every last cent I had
Tryin to forget about you baby
And those things that you did

Feelin better yeah

Got my Whiskey Whiskey Whiskey yeah
For good luck

Every red cent and all my bread
Just to get you outta my head

Of my Bottle of Whisky
And i spent every last cent I had
Tryin to forget about you
And those things that you did

Got my Whiskey Whiskey Whiskey yeah
Got my Whiskey Instead
Got my Whiskey Whiskey Whiskey yeah
Got my Whiskey Instead

When The Rain Comes Down

Written By: Shwill

(oh my baby love)

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you be
When the Rain Comes Down
Will you be with me

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you be

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you lie
Will you be in the arms
Of another guy

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will You be

I've heard stories
From across town
Making me wonder
Who's arms are you under

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you be

When the Rain Comes Down
Comes down over me

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you be
When the Rain Comes Down
Will you be with me

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you be

I seen the storm clouds
Lightning and thunder
Who's fucking arms
Will you be under

When the Rain Comes Down
Comes down over me

When the Rain Comes Down
Comes Down Over Me
When the Rain Comes Down
Comes Down Over Me

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you be
When the Rain Comes Down
Will you be with me

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you be

I've heard the stormclouds
Lightning and thunder
Who's fucking arms
Will you be under

When the Rain Comes Down
Where will you be

When the Rain Comes Down
Comes Down Over Me
When the Rain Comes Down
Comes Down (comes down) Over Me
When the Rain Comes Down
Comes Down Over Me
