and his Eclectic Acoustic Maneuvers
Singing Songs of Love and Other Dangers
Including original music based around poetic lyrics and covers ranging from centuries-old folk songs to 21st century rock and roll, Tom Swiss's eclectic acoustic music was once described by a bystander as sounding like "a combination of Jim Morrison and Jello Biafra". Besides numerous venues in and around Baltimore, he has played at events including the Ellicott City Fall Festival, Wisteria's Cornstalk Festival, the Free Spirit Gathering, and the Instant Gratification series of multimedia art happenings.
Tom's demo album of original live music, Lo Fi, No Talent, is now available for free download.

And a new musical project with an entirely different sort of sound:
Tom Swift and the Electric Monk
Experimental electro-primitive improv
A new project, experimentally mixing the high-tech with the primitive. Laptop meets shakuhatchi. Electric guitar meets kubing.
More information coming soon.
