"Swizzle Tree"

Swizzle Tree's current release "Play On" opened to rave reviews September 9th, 2003 from both critics and fans. The album was released at the House of Blues with good friends Lucky Boys Confusion. WZZN 94.7 The Zone's Music Director James Van Osdol says of the band "Swizzle Tree continues to grow as a band, and their audience grows in size on a seemingly daily basis. I've kept my eye on them for years and think their closer to the brass ring then they've ever been. I love this band."
Following the release of "Play On," Swizzle Tree received airplay on Chicago's WKQX-Q101 and WZZN-94.7 The Zone. They were the only band featured by Q101 during its opening day afternoon drive broadcast celebration for the new Soldier Field home of the Chicago Bears. WGN-TV held a local Chicago Battle of the Bands and 93% of the audience picked Swizzle Tree as their favorite band. Most recently, KIWR-89.7 The River in Omaha, Nebraska added "Theresa". Top 5 Phones, 44 spins a week and more then 600 units sold in 90 days speaks for itself.

Swizzle Tree's live show? Sum 41, Lit, Eve 6, Revis, Ok Go and a list of others a mile long including Lollapalooza 2003 prove the consistency, the drawing power and long term commitment that Swizzle Tree has to making it happen. Chicago born and bred, Swizzle Tree proves that they're a force to be reckoned with; and the only band you should keep an eye on 2004. (Swizzle Tree) - Centerstage, Chicago's Originaly City Guide

Swizzle Tree definitely has an interesting name, which in a strange way defines the style of the band…Interesting. Soaring melodies, crunchy guitars, magnetic harmonies, a solid rhythm section and strange personalities make up the unique sound of this infectious rock band. Born and bred in Chicago/Downers Grove, Il - Swizzle Tree's members are no strangers to music. With influences ranging from the Beatles to Weezer and Alkaline Trio to Material Issue, the band shows no signs of weakness. Steve, Saarang, Todish, and Jiggles all went to high school together at Downers Grove South in Downers Grove, Illinois. Working together at a retirement home, Saarang, Steve and Todish became quick friends - getting high and serving ‘old’ people food is a good form of bonding…and getting high is too. Sooner than later, they did what every clan of tight-knit teenager’s did…started a band!!! After luring Jiggles in, and releasing their self-titled album, Swizzle Tree(2001), featuring the song Green Eyed Fool mixed by Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, Plain White T’s, Avenged Sevenfold), and selling a few thousand copies, the Tree started playing bigger and better shows in Chicago. With the release of Play On(2003), a new-improved music machine started branching out through the Midwest, building up markets and making new friends. After a lot of hard work, a lot of agonizing van trips with no A/C, and a radio add in Council Bluffs, IA/Omaha, NE ~ the Tree saw a steadily growing fan-base and surge in record sales. With the track Marc’s Car becoming a hit on Council Bluffs, IA based KIWR (89.7 The River), the band sold close to 10,000 copies of Play On throughout the Midwest. Which spawned the release of Here We Are(2006) on Areena Records, and the independent release of No Really I’m Happy(2008). Swizzle Tree knows what they want to do in life: Play music!!!
