About Kirby Swatosh & The Moon Rock Patrol

Kirby Swatosh & The Moon Rock Patrol

Singer/songwriter Kirby Swatosh hails from Vancouver,Washington. His catchy pop-rock melodies and clever lyrics introduce a startling original imagination informed by the faith of one who follows his musical dreams.

Swatosh's "Moon Rock Patrol" has been featured at McMenamins Hotel Oregon's Annual UFO FEST for six years running. Called "peculiar and emotional, raw and goofy" by The Seattle Rocket, "the James Taylor of Clark County" by Willamette Week, Kirby's music has also been several times on KINK FM's "Local Artist Spotlight".

The Kirby Swatosh Band once opened for national touring act Dada, and has released four CDs of original music.

Despite his affinity for extraterrestrial themes, Swatosh's repertoire is mainly down-to-earth pop, grounded by a childhood spent listening to The Beatles, Pink Floyd and James Taylor.
