Hello from Theo, Chris and Rawn of Swaybone.
Swaybone is about turning our back on the ego culture, and showing rock a new way to go. I sing all my songs to bring forth a new culture of prior unity, to replace the old crumbling matrix of ego and death. Swaybone's members are battle-scarred veterans of decades of survival in rock and roll in the Bay Area. Swaybone has survived the darkness of the music industry with its light intact. Swaybone embodies the musicianship and songwriting of the golden age of grunge, and combines it with a lyrical message that explores personal and collective awakening. Swaybone invites its audience into a hard rock embrace of love, light and awakening.
Swaybone has released 5 CD's since 1995's Careless With Matches, including Life on Earth in 2013, and Dissolver in 2016. Our eight best recordings from these albums, as well as one instrumental "jam", are featured on Swaybone's latest CD, called Swaybone's Golden Hits. The CD is available directly through the bandmembers.
Swaybone is also available through youtube at www.youtube.com/swaybonerocks, and via free downloads at soundcloud www.soundcloud.com/swaybone.
You can also read the philosophy of prior unity at http://theocedarjones.weebly.com/not-two-is-peace.html.
Swaybone would like to thank everybody with Bands4Bands for honoring us with awards for Best Vocalist and Best Backing Vocalist at the 15th Annual Awards Ceremony on March 14, 2015.
