Current Swell
The members of Current Swell no longer live together under a single roof — as they did years ago,
when the group first came together as a unit — but the bond between the four friends is stronger than

Touring the world for the better part of five years, from Brazil to Australia, often has that effect.

Current Swell’s years of experience on the road can be heard — and felt — in the nooks and crannies 

of Long Time Ago, the new full-length from this rootsy Victoria, B.C. quartet. The record shifts
between upbeat folk (the title track, Long Time Ago) and singalong-ready roots rock (the first single,
Too Cold) with a fluidity and ease that could only come from continual touring.

The band originally wanted to call its fourth record People Not Places, as if to signify its new lyrical
direction. “We used to write about traveling, because that’s all we did for a while,” says singer-
guitarist Scott Stanton. “But on this record, we wrote mostly about people in our lives.”

Friends, acquaintances — even strangers — have been an integral aspect of Current Swell’s personal
and professional development. Decidedly grass-roots, the band has developed a strong online
following over the years, dating back to the independent release and promotion of its previous
recordings, So I Say (2005), Trust Us Now (2007), and Protect Your Own (2009).

Mark's Midnight Carnival Show
From listening to Mark’s Midnight Carnival Show, it’s hard to believe that this Indie Rock band has only been together for 2 years. Formed in September 2009, Mark’s Midnight Carnival Show has played over 350 shows, traveled 100,000 miles, met countless fans and friends, and put out two live radio albums. The release of their self titled album in September 2011 delivers a healthy dose of Original Indie Rock goodness. Comprised of Mark Bush, vocals/bass/guitar, Scott Bein, lead guitar, and Gavin Straub, percussion, this regional touring band continually gains momentum and grows their fan base. From their home in Southern Colorado, they set out to spread their music and bring Mark's Midnight Carnival Show to everyone.
