Every song has a story. With Current Swell’s most recent release, When To Talk And When To Listen (out now via Nettwerk Records), these stories cut deep.
Grammy-winning producer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Cold War Kids, Of Monsters and Men, James Bay) produced the album over four weeks in two vastly different locales: Nashville and Vancouver. During the first night at Nashville’s famed Blackbird Studios, King cut short the sessions and told the band to come back when they had something worthwhile to say. A blunt, band-only meeting quickly cured what ailed them. The four friends returned the following day ready to create.
Current Swell has a proven track record – two singles from 2014’s Ulysses hit No. 1 on iTunes Canada’s rock chart, both landing Top 10 on the commercial rock charts in Canada. A solid fanbase has taken the group across four continents – North America, South America, Europe, Australia/New Zealand. But, all signs point to When To Talk And When To Listen casting a wider net.
