Oliver Swain

Oliver Swain is a folk musician with astonishing instrumental and vocal abilities, though he seldom gives the genre a fully traditional treatment. Oliver strays towards the whimsical, the spiritual, and the socially conscious and it’s these beguiling and provocative elements that make him unique as an artist and songwriter. Devon Leger even called him “The Zen Rock Garden of old time music” No Depression!

“This is genre defying at it’s best…beautifully played and performed, each song a mini masterpiece” Paul Jackson, Fatea magazine UK

“Since I first discovered him, Oliver Swain has been one of my very Favorite artists, especially in a live setting”  Tamara Kater, Director at Folk Music Canada

Oliver has played with some of Canada’s most loved roots bands including The Bills, The Duhks, Outlaw Social and The Red Stick Ramblers. He’s a two time Prairie Music Award winner and a Juno nominee.
