A singer, songwriter, lyricist and producer, the multi-talented Swsh has crafted a distinct and signature sound that’s all her own. Developing her musical palate from the age of five, Swsh would begin learning to play piano in her childhood home in Southern California. Quickly adding guitar and bass to her repertoire, her skills would ultimately culminate in the production of her own music. With her powerhouse vocals and soulful style, Swsh instills a sense of independence and liveliness within each release – waxing poetic on everything from love and relationships, body and sex positivity, and more.
Building upon a steady rise to prominence, Swsh released her singles “Flowers” and “Gone” in 2017 – the latter of which appeared on the Winter ’18 Compilation for Grammy-nominated producer Ricky Reed’s label Nice Life, home to rising female artists including Lizzo and Pussy Riot. This year, Swsh followed suit with the playful “Momma’s Kisses”, in addition to releasing her spirited debut EP SOUP in February via Stem.
Crafted in collaboration with J.KELR, producer for Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, and Anderson .Paak, the four-track EP was featured in Spotify’s Fresh Finds: Fire Emoji playlist and debuted at #1 in the EP Top 5 on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Awarded with the top spot and labeled as one of this year’s essential R&B albums, the announcement also served as Swsh’s radio debut, with SOUP‘s lead track “Shouldn’t” hitting airwaves for the very first time. Continuing her run of success, this spring the rising songstress served as West Coast tour support for Colombian artist Lido Pimienta and is due to release forthcoming singles and collaborations later this year.
