Southern Pines, North Carolina, USA

Soul Rock Gumbo from North Carolina. We play original music and covers for your entertainment!


Swain started with vocalist Ryan Fantana and Guitarist Clay Singletary just getting together to write and jam.  Both long time friends, they had played music together before, but nothing quite like what would soon be called Swain.  The line up was rounded out with addition of James Jones on the Bass Guitar and Jason Thiele on the Drums.  Jason spent 8 months behind the kit before he relocated to the State of Indiana to work full time.  Since his departure, Swain has used several drummers to fill the void.  If you ask Ryan and Clay what makes this band work, they will both tell you, "we just love creating, and we both have a real passion for playing live, and that keeps us going even when the odds are against us"...

Swain has just completed their first full length record, recorded at Bright Light Studio in Fayetteville, N.C. and should be available on iTunes sometime Spring of 2014'.
