A songwriter who pens music straight from the heart, with lyrics equal parts energetic and self-aware.

For New South Wales songwriter and musician Josh Swan, the release of his debut single ‘Lay You Down’ is the beginning of a bright new chapter of music and creative release. Having been around as a performer and songwriter for some time now, 2020 is set to serve as a brand new chapter for Josh, with the Byron Bay-based songwriter launching his solo project this year.

With his music, Josh introduces himself to music listeners to a songwriter who pens music straight from the heart, with lyrics equal parts energetic and self-aware. After spending time abroad writing and recording in Los Angeles and New York City, Josh returned home to pour his efforts into creating a new record - the final result being forthcoming EP, Run and Hide, on which ‘Lay You Down’ features.

A stunning showcase of indie and alternative rock blending together to explore the themes of personal connections and strong desires, ‘Lay You Down’ shows just how versatile Josh truly is. Back on home turf and working with the likes of musician/producer Luke Palmer and ARIA-nominated mixer/mastering engineer Forrester Savell (Birds of Tokyo, Dead Letter Circus), Australian audiences are soon to be receiving previews of the stunning things yet to come in 2020 for Josh Swan.
