The Jimmy Swift Band
Halifax, Nova Scotia
We are a band based in Halifax, Nova Scotia and artistically we travel in two directions simultaneously. We love to improvise music – particularly dance music – and we also write melodic rock and pop music. We want to tour the world and make great albums. To date, we’ve self-released 5 albums and a live concert DVD, have two music videos, have won numerous awards including an ECMA for best alternative artists in 2002 and several NSMAs. We’ve had the pleasure of sharing the stage with a number of our favourite bands, and we value all of the insights and friendship we’ve gained from the promoters, venues, bars, festivals, studios, industry people and artists in the Canadian East Coast as well as the rest of Canada and the world. Above all, we value our fans who’ve been supporting us for nearly a decade.
