Utica, MI (PressExposure) August 26, 2009 -- When it comes to being and independent Artist, David Swain knows a thing or two. Since 1991 he has been releasing his own music through a self owned record company. His record company is called Gore Infidel Records. Through his record label his music has been able to reach more listeners than he ever imagined through the internet. This includes being featured on 5 BBC radio stations, plus countless internet radio stations world wide. Still, this unique Artist relies on word of mouth as one of the most reliable ways to reach listeners.
The Wire Magazine calls him "The new breed of one man band". However, his work goes beyond just creating the music. Dave Swain takes things into his own hands when it comes to releasing the music on his label, promoting it to radio DJs, selling his albums, and establishing his music career. Along with this effort, David Swain writes, records and produces all of his material from his home studio. The one thing that sets him apart from most recording Artists today is that he does not record with a computer, or use any music production software.
His latest album release "I'm Not Here, I'm Never Here" is scheduled to be released on September 14, 2009. This is the widely acclaimed and much awaited second album from this true maverick of the UK underground scene. Swain's music stretches across many genres including Indie, Alternative, Electronic, Experimental and more. He often uses low tech items like electronic toys, or old keyboards that have been rewired with new controls added to turn existing sounds into a new audio experience. Roger Hill of BBC Radio calls it "Fascinating stuff indeed"!
As an independent Artist David Swain sells his music downloads on web sites like iTunes. However, he does not show a serious interest in making large amounts of money. Instead, Swain simply wants to be able to continue making music to fund his music production and marketing expenses. In 2001 he took a leap of faith to begin putting a full-time effort into his music. This has paid off with music fans around the world that he remains loyal to.
With this latest album, Swain keeps moving forward to live his dreams. Over time, his talents for creating music continue to evolve. He has given himself plenty of time to do just that. David Swain's music is available for purchase through his web site at http://goreinfidel.tripod.com/
