Album Notes
To say that musician and songwriter Nic Swales, gets around is not an understatement. With his roots firmly planted in Sarnia currently, he has traveled many miles over the last decade honing his craft and getting his music out to the public. His style of song writing and singing is at warm and inviting with a haunting lilt to it that leaves you wanting more.

Known to be one of Sarnia's premier song-smith's, back in 2007, Nic relocated briefly to Halifax Nova Scotia and independently recorded and released an acoustic EP "Sunny River" along with a full length pop/rock album "Bohemian Summer". Both were recorded, engineered and produced by Dennis Field at Denmark Productions. A total of sixteen songs were recorded with a successful CD release party in Sarnia and a brief tour in support of "Bohemian Summer" following.

His hard work was met with much success giving him radio play not only in his home town, but also on the east coast on CBC Atlantic along with other stations. Making the year even more noteworthy, Nic won the 'Runner Up' and 'Suggested Artist' awards in the Annual Song Of The Year Songwriting Contest.

The following year saw Nic being featured on an episode of a television show in Springfield Massachusetts called New Music Showcase as well as having song placement on the national PBS network show called Roadtrip Nation. Once settled back into Sarnia, it didn't take Nic long to become, once again, part of the vibrant music scene of the city. He began hosting the Songwriter's Circle set at the annual Sarnia Artwalk art and music festival and playing regularly at many of the downtown venues.

2012 saw him releasing another full length recording called "Variant" that was a total local production right down to the cover art with photographic work by Hailey McHarg. Recording, engineering and production was done by Adam Miner at DNA Recording Studio. This CD was so successful that Nic was featured on two episodes of a live music show for Cogeco Cable television with his current band, 'The Band Of Friends'. After the broadcast the audio was re-mixed and video was edited to release three live performance videos on youtube

More recently Nic along with Adam Miner, have developed a song writing partnership/collaborative effort which they hope will open the doors for more publishing opportunities. To this end, the songs "Ghosts of History" and "Little Jar" have been added to the song catalogue of U.S. based music publishing company Noteborn Music Inc.

According to CBC Music website... "Nic Swales is one of those songwriters and guitarists you need to keep your eye on in the next little while.... Nic is poised to take his well deserved rightful place on the rich tapestry that is the Canadian Independent music scene."
