The Big Swamp

The southeastern United States. Cradle of the blues. The pubs and suits of the 50s are hardly a flurry in the mosquitoesque air. That’s exactly what The Big Swamp breathes. The music of the four Hildesheimer is earthy, pulsating, original.

Delta blues. Southern Rock. Swamp Rock.

Slide guitar, blues harp, bass create a distinctive style. “Sharp Juke joint sound from Hildesheim”, marveled the editors of “Guitar & Bass” after the first recordings. The music of The Big Swamp flows through the ear canals like fiery whiskey through the esophagus. The band is swimming in the same waters as Shawn James, Foghat, R.L. Burnside, Jack White, Wucan, Siena Root or Blackberry Smoke.

Over 2000 music lovers like the group on Facebook. Connoisseurs have heard the songs of The Big Swamp alone on Soundcloud 4000 times. Youtube counts for “River Mud” 10,000 clicks. The first work of the group, “Sober And Nice”, is out of print.

The third album “Come Over, Come Home” will be released on September 29th. It was mastered in Nashville, Tennessee. Responsible was TrueEast-Mastering. The same sound artists have already made their predecessor, the acclaimed “Heavy Load”, a listening experience. The recordings of all three pieces of silver were made in the 7V studios of Achim Sauer.

The Big Swamp are no longer an insider tip. The albums of the Swamp Rocker are an indispensable part of the record shelf of every blues fan.
