Swim Deeper sounds like a mix of Steely Dan, Paul Simon, and Pat Metheny. Part rock, part jazz, this band can write catchy melodies to accompany their sometimes quirky lyrics. Their first CD "Triangles" is a combination of upbeat grooves, lazy "summertime" music, and some great jazz instrumentals mixed in. We think you'll enjoy this one! Please visit the boys at SWIMDEEPER.COM Swim Deeper is: mike rydene - keys, acoustic guitar john ossa - rhythm and lead guitars, bass ed kumpitsch - drums, percussion jim jaillet - bass guitar geoff cox - saxophone, flute, whistle
Band/artist history
Swim Deeper formed in 1998 as a cover band playing lots of Steely Dan and Dave Matthews, but the members have always written music. We finally decided to make the switch to playing mostly our own stuff and mixing some cover tunes in for good measure. Check out our website at SWIMDEEPER.COM for more samples of our songs.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
We play gigs around Connecticut, but at the moment have been busy recording our next CD at Studio 17 in Waterford. It's a great sounding studio run by a talented drummer.

Steely Dan, Alan Parsons, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Kansas, Government Mule, Allman Brothers, Dave Matthews, Paul Simon, Pat Metheny, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jeff Lorber, George Gershwin, of course Jimi, and lots more.
