Louden Swain / Naughty Water
Louden Swain is a four-piece Los Angeles indie group that has been described as a combo platter of classic, alternative, and hard rock. Fronted by lead singer and actor Rob Benedict, Louden Swain also includes bassist Mike Borja, lead guitarist Billy Moran, and drummer Stephen Norton. In 2012, the band released its fourth full-length recording Eskimo on their own 3 Car Wreckords label. Each album has arrived to a lot of early buzz, “The LA pop rock band has a polished sound reminiscent of Marvelous 3,” says Kayley Thomas of Pop Matters, “one that crackles and sparks with wit, humor, and a powerful mix of intellectual and musical playfulness and maturity. Bursting with energy and whimsy.”
Naughty Water is a full-tilt country-flavored rock band. Dreamt by the mind of guitarist/singer Phil Stanley, the thunderous sounds of this quartet will have you stomping your foot and thirsty for more.
