About Swag

A supergroup comprised of several veteran musicians, Swag plays a rousing blend of power pop and indie rock. In 1996, keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden (Sixpence None the Richer) met guitarist Robert Reynolds (the Mavericks) while their two bands were touring together. Their similar interests prompted them to put together an open-ended musical project, eventually ensnaring drummer Ken Coomer (Wilco), multi-instrumentalist Doug Powell (a solo artist on Not Lame Records), and bassist Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick). The group's Nashville recording sessions produced a couple of limited-edition singles in the late '90s and a 10" picture disc EP Different Girls in 2000. Their hard-to-find singles as well as eight new songs were compiled for their 2001 full-length debut Catchall. ~ Zac Johnson
