SWIDENBANK is a band from Bedford in the South of England, which takes its name from the family name of brothers Joseph Swidenbank (lead singer, songwriter, guitar) and Ben Swidenbank (bass and backing vocals), together with Bud Rogers (lead guitar and backing vocals) and Pete Hancock (drums and backing vocals)
Joe released a solo album "Roads" and when he was asked to do some gigs to promote the album, the natural choice for bass was his brother Ben who has played with many established artists, who then brought in lead guitarist Bud Rogers and drummer Pete Hancock, to perform a live tour to promote the album.
The band wrote the 11 songs that make up the "Scattered" album, with Joe writing the lyrics and the band writing the music together, the release of which had to be postponed, due to complications with the record label the album was originally signed to, but which was finally released on 30th June 2012
They are an originals band, although they did release a cover of Joe Jackson's "It's Different For Girls" which received excellent feedback and has had radio airplay worldwide. (Please note - we are using the band's reverbnation music player which does include that track but we do not own any publishing rights to that song)
Previous gigs have included playing the main stage at the 30th Bedford River Festival in 2008, and they also did a full live internet gig which was broadcast online worldwide. They were invited back to play the main stage of the 2012 Bedford River Festival
Joe writes from the heart and his lyrics are very personal and often deeply emotional, even some of his rockiest songs have a heartbroken undercurrent.
They are a cross-over band encompassing different levels of rock and pop, and their songs range from soft emotional ballads through to pounding heavy rock. Swidenbank songs get a lot of radio airplay and particularly appeal to American audiences.
