Biography

Swizzle Tree definitely has an interesting name, which in a strange way defines the style of the band…Interesting. Soaring melodies, crunchy guitars, magnetic harmonies, a solid rhythm section and strange personalities make up the unique sound of this infectious rock band. Born and bred in Chicago/Downers Grove, Il - Swizzle Tree’s members are no strangers to music. With influences ranging from the Beatles to Weezer and Alkaline Trio to Material Issue, the band shows no signs of weakness. Steve, Saarang, Todish, and Jiggles all went to high school together at Downers Grove South in Downers Grove, Illinois. Working together at a retirement home, Saarang, Steve and Todish became quick friends - getting high and serving ‘old’ people food is a good form of bonding…and getting high is too. Sooner than later, they did what every clan of tight-knit teenager’s did…started a band!!! After luring Jiggles in, and releasing their self-titled album, Swizzle Tree(2001), featuring the song Green Eyed Fool mixed by Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, Plain White T’s, Avenged Sevenfold), and selling a few thousand copies, the Tree started playing bigger and better shows in Chicago. With the release of Play On(2003), a new-improved music machine started branching out through the Midwest, building up markets and making new friends. After a lot of hard work, a lot of agonizing van trips with no A/C, and a radio add in Council Bluffs, IA/Omaha, NE ~ the Tree saw a steadily growing fan-base and surge in record sales. With the track Marc’s Car becoming a hit on Council Bluffs, IA based KIWR (89.7 The River), the band sold close to 10,000 copies of Play On throughout the Midwest.
