Thom Swift is a multi-award winning singer-songwriter who performs a distinctive blend of roots-blues. He is well known for his “sophisticated guitar-playing”, “earthy baritone voice” and “textured and truthful” lyrics.

The Fortunate Few, Swift’s third solo recording was released on March 5th. Prior to his fruitful solo career, Swift played with blues-folk trio Hot Toddy for 12 years. As a solo artist, Swift has three previous award-winning recordings to his credit: 2007’s Into The Dirt, 2010’s Blue Sky Day and a 2011 children’s recording titled, The Wood Buffalo Youth Song Project.

Hailing from Summerside, PE, three time ECMA award winning artist Nathan Wiley first earned acclaim for his 2002 debut Bottom Dollar, He made good on the promise of that release with the ECMA-winning follow up High Low two years later. His blend of classic sounds with a modern, slightly world weary perspective struck a chord with listeners, as songs full of subtle melodies and lyrics addressing those unquenchable yearnings inside all of us wormed their way into their ears. Next came The City Destroyed Me, (produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin) where Wiley’s two-sided persona of small-town-boy-meets-big-city-desire-and-despair grows a few more sizes.

Nathan has shared the stage with artists like Blue Rodeo, Sarah Harmer, Steve Earle, Billy Bragg, Matt Mays, Ron Sexsmith and many more. His song Bottom Dollar Baby has appeared the last two years in a row in the Charlottetown Festival production, “Come-All-Ye”. Nathan splits his time these days between recording new material and producing other island acts including Gordie MacKeeman & his Rhythm Boys and Drea MacDonald and hopes to have another recording released by the end of the year.
