Recently we got a chance to catch up with Colton Swon, Singer and Guitarist of The Swon Brothers. There are many places you could have seen him, such as on Carrie Underwood’s The Storyteller Tour and you also may recognize him from Team Blake on The Voice a couple seasons ago. Here’s what he had to say!
Vinyl Record: What first sparked interest in being musicians?
Colton Swon: From day one we were raised around music. Our parents had a love for touring and we just assumed that playing and writing was normal and everyone does it.
VR: Are there any influences that pushed you to stick with this specific pathway in the music field?
CS: The influence from our surroundings growing up had a huge effect on the sound and lyrics of our music. Look at an artist’s environment and you probably can narrow it down to what kind of music they like in most cases.
VR: Did being on the voice and on Blake Shelton’s team teach you guys anything you never knew before about the industry?
CS: Working with Blake on the voice pushed us to a greater level. We thought we were working hard but he taught us that we were just beginning and there is always something more one can do to reach their goals.
VR: What has it been like to be opening up for Carrie Underwood on The Story Teller Tour?
CS: She is a super star. She has shown nothing but humbleness and kindness and her fans have been amazing to share.
VR: Let’s talk about some music; what are some music plans do you have in store for your fans? That you can share of course. Can they expect any singles soon?
CS: We actually have another EP finished. Worked super hard and finally have a project that we think fans are going to relate to greater than they have in the past. It’s a lot more “us”
VR: Is there anything else you would like to share in this interview? Anything you would like to say to your fans?
CS: Thank You. Can’t do what we do without our fans. You won’t meet another artist more grateful for their support system.
