Current Swell plays the Performance Works, part of Winteruption!
Current Swell was created 5 years ago in Alberta‚ Canada with three friends Scott Stanton‚ Davers Lang and Louis Sadava. The band relocated to Victoria BC in summer 2006 recognizing that their roots rock reggae sound echoed the spirit of the West Coast surf rock roots community. Three critically acclaimed albums “So I Say”‚ “Trust Us Now” and “Protect Your Own” supported Current Swell’s inclusion as opening act for artists such as Xavier Rudd‚ The Beautiful Girls‚ Ash Grunwald‚ Bedouin Soundclash‚ The Beach Boys and Daniel Wesley. Festival presenters and promoters took notice with Current Swell appearing at diverse national festivals such as Mt.Tremblant Blues Festival‚ Rifflandia‚ Ottawa Bluesfest‚ Open Sky festival‚ 2010 Olympics and Whistler WS2.
“Stories From Home” is a compilation of songs from the Lauren Mann EP and the Lost and Found EP, as well as three unreleased tracks, all of which were written and recorded between 2006 and 2009. These are the stories of Lauren’s beginning, from her first years writing and recording in her parents’ basement. It tells the tales of years past, and is a prelude of things to come, including a cross-Canada tour commencing in early 2011, and recording at the Vanguard Room in Lakeland, Florida in April and May.
