ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SWAY are a contemporary country band (with a sprinkling of bluegrass influence in some of their songs) formed by founding members Perry Martin and Gina Quartaro.

Their paths would cross...............

In the office of Doctor Dana Ballerini, good friend and chiropractor extraordinaire, on an unassuming day, Gina and Perry would meet and discuss music. What would happen from there is history in the making and the very beginning of SWAY. Their approach to songwriting is a mix of sincerity and devotion. Their product is a well written song destined to SWAY the listener.

GINA QUARTARO
Vocals/Rhythm Guitar

Born, Gina Josephine Quartaro in Hollywood, CA, and a prolific songwriter since the age of eight, Gina has written and co-produced over 200 memorable songs to date. She has been coined the “Female Elton John….” by the legendary Russ Reagan. Her debut album, "I'll Always Be Your Girl” attracted industry attention and got her a deal on Award Records/ADA and a national release after which she released her second album Josephine Redwing, "Attention"

Gina has opened for such national acts as Rosanne Cash, Nick Lowe, Sweet Hearts Of The Rodeo to name but a few. “Late in 2007 I formed a band called SWAY featuring Perry Martin on vocals and guitar, Laurens Vernot on bass, and Trevor Hands on drums. We're still in search of the right mandolin & banjo player in Orange County, California but remain hopeful. SWAY is an all original group rich in harmonies and thoughtful guitar hooks. Our music is catchy. We've been accused of having that song that stays stuck in your head for day - - - guilty as charged!"

PERRY MARTIN
Vocals/Lead Guitar

At a very young age Perry wound up playing in a country show band, "The Donny James Show" and toured South Vietnam during 1968 -69.

The band were eventually given there own weekly television show on the the Armed Forces Radio and Television Network. The show was called, appropriately, "Nashville Vietnam". "We would generally record four or five shows at a time in the studios in Saigon and then tour for a few weeks."

The female vocalist of the band was Leta Frizzell, daughter of country legend Lefty Frizzell, who later toured with the band himself for a couple of months as a guest star. They also had guests on their Armed Forces Network TV show such as Hank Snow Jr. and Sheb Wooley of "Rawhide" and Purple People Eater fame.

From there Perry toured the Far East finally settling in Hong Kong where he released three very successful albums of original pop/rock songs. He finally made his way to the United States and after a variety of musical twist and turns ended up back in the country genre again - - first as a solo artist and now with Gina and their band SWAY.

LAURENS VERNOT
Vocals/Bass Guitar

Bass player Laurens Vernot has been writing songs and performing since the age of 9. Born in New York to a musical family, he grew up in the tiny town of Yellow Springs, Ohio and was raised on a healthy diet of pop, country-rock, folk, funk and soul.

His college band, The Keepers, was renowned for it's 60's inspired beat and pristine three-part harmonies. After playing throughout the Midwest in the early 80's, they relocated to join the pop explosion in Boston.

Laurens then moved to California and put down his bass guitar for nearly 20 years.

When a small record label released a retrospective of The Keepers music, a switch was thrown in his head and the songs started popping up again. Laurens recorded and released his first solo cd under the moniker "The Lava Province" (www.myspace.com/lavaprovince), writing, producing, singing and playing all the parts but the drums. The album received widespread critical acclaim and he was nominated Best Indie Artist at the 2007 Orange County Music Awards, and was also selected to perform in the 2007 International Pop Overthrow festival.


Without a regular band, Laurens began playing coffee houses and open mic nights. It was there he saw Gina Quartaro and Perry Martin, who had just formed the band Sway, perform. He knew immediately he wanted to play and sing with this talented duo, and soon arranged an audition. As a result he is now the newest member of SWAY!

TREVOR HANDS
Drums/Percussion

Born and raised on a farm in the plains of Southwestern Kansas, Trevor Hands took an interest in music at a young age. He began playing piano at age eight and later studied jazz with the late Frank Mantooth. But he found his real love at the age of ten when he discovered the drums.
He received his college degree in music from Friends University in Wichita, Kansas, where he sang bass and was the percussionist for the internationally known choir, "The Singing Quakers". He currently resides in
Burbank.

SWAY's debut album was released June 21st 2008 - - an album full of catchy, radio-friendly songs. To quote Robert Kinsler, in article in the Orange County Register promoting the CD Release: "Although SWAY was launched a mere eight months ago, the quartets’ masterful debut, "Let It Roll", sounds as if it was honed by musicians who have been working together for years".

Let It Roll
I really liked this album. The vocals were excellent and the music was very professional - simple, tight and very appropriate. This group has a very bright future, in my estimation.
