DEEP SWELL is a true rock band rising from the banks of the Potomac River near the historic town of Shepherdstown, WV. Now with their sound crafted, their first album Lore Of The Angler is set to be released on Maryland Rockers CLUTCH's record label Weathermaker Music on October 15th.
In addition to being released on Clutch's label, Clutch guitarist Tim Sult is a member of the band. With a powerful female lead vocalist and precise rhythmic force, their sound is a mix of riff-based rock, funk-tinged psychedelia and mysterious poetic lyrics. Today the band has unveiled the artwork and tracklisting for Lore Of The Angler.
Years of friendship and mutual appreciation for each other's talents brought guitarist Tim Sult into collaboration with drummer Jesse Shultzaberger and bassist Logan Kilmer. Sult earned his stripes as the guitarist and one of the founding members of the popular rock band, Clutch. Shultzaberger is a versatile drummer who currently tours with the Americana band, THE WOODSHEDDERS. Kilmer, who honed his technique and methods with NOETIC PULL, plays five-string with a smooth funky bass style to the depth of which helped spawn the band's name. At the beginning of 2012 they met Briena Pearl and invited her to join the trio. Pearl, a lifelong student of voice, theater, and dance, quickly proved the sheer force of her talent as a singer and songwriter, thus establishing an instant chemistry with the band and a clear direction for their emerging sound. With this final addition in place Deep Swell's dynamic sound was forged.
Guitarist Tim Sult commented about being a part of Deep Swell and the new release: "I'm very excited about working with another group of talented artists and I'm looking forward to introducing the new project to the world"
In February 2013, the band recorded Lore Of The Angler at Magpie Cage Recording Studio in Baltimore, MD. Three months later, they were signed with Weathermaker Music, with the label overseeing distribution, touring and publicity for the album starting this fall. The current is pulling hard and for Deep Swell the tale is just beginning.
