The long-anticipated new album from the BIG MACHINE, Never More Together, is set to release officially October 2nd, kicking off Canadian tour from west to east with Oliver accompanied by BIG MACHINISTS Adam Dobres (guitar), Jeremy Penner (violin) or Trent Freeman (violin). The album is a rich and sublime example of Swain’s personal obsessions. He strays towards the whimsical, the spiritual, and the socially conscious side of what he likes to refer to as “chamber folk odyssey”, and it’s these beguiling and provocative elements that make him unique as an artist and songwriter. Clawhammer banjo, bowed bass and slack key guitar style, combined with pure, multi-octave vocals present the writer’s fascination with ethnomusicology. Modern rock and early R&B are curated within the traditionally-based songs, used as springboard into the imagination.
