Louden Swain

Over the course of two decades together, Los Angeles based indie rock band LoudenSwain has released a series of impressively accomplished albums, toured successfullythroughout North America, Europe, and Australia, and built a dedicated social mediafollowing—all without the support of a mainstream record label.Taking their name from the plucky protagonist of the '80s film Vision Quest, singer RobBenedict, bassist Mike Borja and drummer Stephen Norton launched the band in 1997,after meeting at a party in Los Angeles. Their early punk-inspired sound quicklyexpanded into a more adventurous and experimental sensibility, while maintaining thetuneful, emotionally open approach that first endeared the group to its fans on the earlyreleases 2001's Able-Legged Heroes, 2003’s Overachiever, and 2006’s Suit And Tie.The addition of lead guitarist Billy Moran in 2006 allowed the band to finally realize thesonic vision that they'd been hearing in their heads.Those epic visions and expanded horizons manifested themselves on the albums A BrandNew Hurt (2009), Eskimo (2011), Sky Alive (2014), No Time Like The Present (2017),and their most recent release - an acoustic re-imagining of songs from their vast catalog- Splitting The Seams (2018). Along the way the band discovered a rabid fanbasepropelled by fans of The CW’s hit television show Supernatural which featured leadsinger Rob Benedict in the role of Chuck The Prophet.Splitting The Seams is a new chapter for Louden Swain, one that reconnects them withtheir past, while forging ahead into new territory as they continue to reach out to bothold and new audiences on the road throughout 2019
