Capturing the essence of R&B and all things soulful, Swayzebane’s sound presents listeners with raw emotion and honesty. While amassing an entourage of resonating fans worldwide, the Canadian songwriter makes a mark in the music realm. Like Prince, 2Pac, James Brown, and Elvis, he’s continuously encouraging several individuals to let their voices be heard. Moreover, Swayzebane shows the power behind vulnerability. After all, he does live by the quote, “A lie dies, and the truth lives on.”
“I am an overachiever, singer-songwriter, weaving together different perceptions in the music I make,” he said during an interview with The Feature Presentation. “I like to create music that will have my audience asking about what they hear or see.”
Set to release his single “Grind On Me” later this month, Swayzebane strives to always “tell stories through songs and share it with the people who can connect.” His other records, like “2 Wrongs,” find the singer putting his pride aside to express how “2 wrongs don’t make things right.” He promises his undivided attention and a better side of love to explore after doing his lover wrong.
With equal parts of introspection and openness, Swayzebane gets the feeling one may feel across through his hazy range and wordplay.
As he reflects on his prior music style, he says,
“In the beginning, I felt like the music I was creating did not match who I was a person. The music I was creating was raw sounding, and more of “rap-singing” whereas now that I rebranded, I have found my niche, my sound, and have tried different techniques that I am comfortable with that reflect who I always wanted to be as an RnB singer. I am more confident now that I can create music for other genres besides R&B, whereas when I first started, I did not know what genre I really fit in.”
Darron Trevor Atherley, known as Swayzebane, found music at 16 years old. His love for music grew as he spent more time with his older friends in the studio. One day, he was complimented on his singing after hitting a note to someone else’s beat. From there, Swayzebane dropped some music of his own.
Swayzebane plans on dropping an EP in the early fall. Also, make sure to keep an eye out for his song “Grind On Me.”
