Current Swell is Scott Stanton (vocals/guitar), David Lang (vocals/guitar), Ghosty Boy (bass) and Chris Petersen (drums). From appearances at key festivals from Australia to Canada (Byron Bay Bluesfest, Peats Ridge, Rock The Shores, Ottawa Blues Festival and more), to sold-out headline tours of Brazil, to support slots with such established artists as Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K’Naan, The Tragically Hip and even The Beach Boys, Current Swell’s infectious sound and raucous live shows have earned the quartet scores of devoted fans around the word. In 2012, Current Swell earned first place at Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project and headlined a Canada Day concert to a crowd of 45,000.
Music fans across North America first caught wind of the group through “Young and Able,” which became a word-of-mouth YouTube success in 2010. Not long after, the group broke big with 2012’s Long Time Ago, its first worldwide release. These recordings inspired fans from across the globe to create hundreds of tribute videos of the hits – some of which weren’t in English – and opened new doors for the group.
Current Swell is at its strongest before a live audience. There is an inherent sense of confidence in the group, one that comes from its years of shared experience.
