The best kept secret in music


"City Arts Magazine"

"Listening to KEXP's Sonarchy program late one Sunday night, I was shocked to hear what I swore was Phish launching into one of their patented, loose-but-tight space-jam excursions. Turns out I was actually hearing a live set by Seattle band Swindler, an improve-heavy 'funk jazz fusion" quartet that's been playing around the city since 2013. For some people, that mix-up will be a warning; for others, a siren song. Because whatever secret ingredient is inside Phish's special sauce, Swindler is cooking with it too." - February 2017 Volume 11 Number 6


Still working on that hot first release.



Swindler produces a fresh and original sound that integrates funk, jazz and psychedelic rock into a masterful sonic tapestry. Their innovative approach makes each live experience compelling and unique. The band continues to expand an already rapidly growing fanbase with each show. Funk based grooves, tight melodic arrangements and strong instrumental improvisation all create a vibe that brings the dance floor alive.

Based in Seattle, they have toured extensively throughout the northwest and beyond. Swindler has shared the stage with numerous national touring acts and regional favorites. Their new live album release ‘Divide That Into 4’ showcases their strengths through superior songwriting and undeniable chemistry.

Swindler is:
Rob Cochran: Bass
Willow Goodine: Keys
Chris Martin: Drums
Mike Saskor: Guitar
