I live to groove and I groove to live. I put things into perspective. I'm a passionate person who brings it to life and to my own craft. I'm a creative singer, songwriter, lyricist, trumpeter, DJ, producer, composer, arranger, music aficionado, lover, fun-lovin' (fun to love and fun to be loved by) and last but not least, all around cool guy. I'm a musician for hire and am becomin' a name that is dropped both locally and internationally.

Call me Swanky. I'm out here to musically influence the world and to spread love through music.

Open your mind and I'll open your soul...

I am the leader of a hip hop/jazz/funk band called The Vibrasonic Sessions. I currently play trumpet for Veronica Domingues and her band.

I am Octavio Santos (yes, my birth name) when it comes to trumpet work and vocals.

I am Swanky when it comes to mic work and rippin' it lyrically.

You will find me in many projects...lend me your eardrums.

The favorites section here contains works I have participated in (vocals, horn work or horn arrangement).

    @Tiny Dragons: There's no sampling here...it's au naturale horn work that I played. But if you mean you can sample it, then I'm sure it could be done, LOL.

    @CloudSpills: There's no sample...I played a trumpet, a flugelhorn and a muted trumpet on that joint. I arranged the horns after Elaquent dropped the beat to me.

    @Greg Blackman: That'd be wicked! I've got a producer in the UK who's sent me some goodies in the form of beats. When I have it all sorted, I'll slide sum'n by your way ;)
