About John Nilsen and Swimfish

Original folk-rock especial

John Nilsen and Swimfish

It's often surprising when a local band writes its own material. SWIMFISHis a unique, colorful band featuring high quality, original folk/rock music.With their focus in first class song writing, the instrument line up is classicacoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, piano & vocals. Certainly theyplay some cover tunes, but they are recording artists with an impressivepedigree who have always written their own material first. Band leader,John Nilsen, has sold well over one million recordings.

SWIMFISH sounds like no other band. Elements of rock, folk andAmericana are woven, spun in different directions, but originality makesthem unique. The debut CD by SWIMFISH, John Nilsen & SWIMFISH, wasplayed throughout the USA on radio to solid reviews. Founding member ofthe major rock band, AMERICA, Dan Peek, wrote, "Major kudos on yourCD. The music is superb, the lyrics inspired and the production/arrangingtop notch. The songwriting hangs together and the tracks flow, carving outa groove like a river carves a canyon. You deserve to be heard."

Consisting of John Nilsen - guitar, piano, vocals / Don Woodward - guitar,mandolin, harmonica, vocals / Mike Snyder - drums, percussion / DaveCaptein - bass / Bob Logue - guitar, vocals, SWIMFISH came intoexistence as John Nilsen?s guitar and vocal band when taking a breakfrom his demanding international piano career. Don "Woody" Woodwardwas the first SWIMFISH member to sign on as the two had grown up asnext door neighbors and taught each other to play guitar as teenagers.Mike Snyder, who has long played with many of the finest musicians on thewest coast and had been on numerous John Nilsen recording sessions,joined the band and it was suggested that Dave Captein would be theperfect, and capable of improvisation, complementary bassist. Guitarist &vocalist, Bob Logue, is a longstanding veteran guitarist of the NW musicscene and seasoned songwriter and performer. John Nilsen's lastrecording, LOCAL OCEAN, features SWIMFISH finding its groove with allnew and original material. That should come as no surprise.
