Biography

In 2006, while working on separate projects, Mitch Swanger and Nick Osborn by chance did some collaborative work on some songs with a mutual friend. Immediately realizing that there was a spark they continued writing and playing shows without a solid line up. In fall of 2007 the line up became almost complete with the permanent addition of Bob James on the bass guitar, and the shows continued. Finally in December of 2008 with the addition of Scott Swanger on lead guitar, things were starting to shape up. After the perfect members were chosen the band went from playing small local shows and parties to playing everywhere from Seattle and Tacoma to Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, with the crowning achievement being the opportunity to play the 2009 South By Southwest festival with bands such as Metallica, Shiny Toy Guns, The Proclaimers and many more iconic bands. Over the years the band has played with other artists to include Jet Black Stare, Divide The Day, Seasons After, just to name a few. In November of 2009 after a wasted summer and an overwhelming stagnant feeling amongst the band mates, it was decided shake things up and revitalize the group. Taking the song writing in a completely different direction, Silent Theory has been refreshed and is now stronger than ever. In 2010 the guys recorded a rock solid demo, made an appearance on MTV Cribs, and headlined the Whisky A Go-Go in Los Angeles. In January 2011, George Swanger was added on the bass guitar and Bob picked up the rhythm guitar, becoming the permanent band line up. The band has recently signed with Turkey Vulture Records and headed to Rockford, Illinois in June where they recorded their full-length debut album, “Black Tie Affair”; the album was released on October 31, 2011, and in celebration of the release, the band played the first ever sold out show in the history of the belltower concert house in Pullman, Washington on November 5, 2011.

Livin' the Dream

Written By: Lyrics by N. Osborn / Music by S. Swanger

I REMEMBER THOSE TIMES WHEN WE WERE YOUNG / SITTING THERE BY THE RADIO JUST HAVING FUN / AND NOW I CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE HERE LIVIN’ THE DREAM / AND NOW I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M HERE PLAYING THE SCENE / AND I TELL YOU THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO DO / AND I TELL YOU THAT’S WHY WE’RE SINGING HERE FOR YOU / PLAYING GUITAR / SINGING OUT LOUD / BANGING THE DRUMS TIL IT ALL CAME DOWN/ AND THAT’S WHY I SAY, I’M LIVIN’ THE DREAM / I REMEMBER THAT TIME WHEN WE WERE YOUNG / WE WERE BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE WITH THAT ROCK N ROLL SONG / AND NOW I CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE HERE JAMMING AWAY / AND NOW I CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE HERE ROCKING TODAY / AND I TELL YOU THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO DO / AND I TELL YOU THAT’S WHY WE’RE SINGING HERE FOR YOU / PLAYING GUITAR / SINGING OUT LOUD / BANGING THE DRUMS TIL IT ALL CAME DOWN/ AND THAT’S WHY I SAY, I’M LIVIN’ THE DREAM
