Swingrowers (pronounced “Swing-Growers”) are a young, dynamic Italian duo from Palermo in Sicily. The pair take their name and inspiration from the farming tradition of their local villages where cultivating plants in the arid countryside is a much-prized art, taking time and skill. So the duo aim to take vintage swing and with respect and nurture, breathe new life into an old tradition.
Roberto Costa a.k.a. “Pisk” and Loredana Grimaudo, melt perfectly together past musical experienced which become fertiliser for the “Swing-Growers”. The idea of electro-swing sound came after discovering new sounds, like the French band Caravan Palace’s ones. Here the brave enterprise to launch on a “dry land” like Italy.
The encounter with manager Giulio Castronovo is a turning point towards the unexpected. Just in few months our artists start their tour around the Europe, passing by famous clubs like London’s Hootananny and La Javà in Paris (performing on the same stage as Edith Piaf and Django Reinhardt), and also important events like Electro Swing Club of London and Milan, the Electro Swing Cabaret organized by Bebop Swing of Lyon and Toulouse, Turin’s Swing Circus, Nottingham’s Jitterbug, Palermo’s Sicily Music Village and Hoppa Fest, Brighton’s and London’s stages of White Mink tour.
At the beginning of 2012 Swingrowers won the contest “Electro-swing People Favourite 2011” as “Best Hope” 2012, with which they take place in the Electro-Swing world chart.
Their first album produced by Freshly Squeezed Music is out from 9th September 2012.
"These guys are complete naturals and a very exciting find for us." said label boss Nick Hollywood. "For me they were a complete stand-out in the world of electro swing, coming out of nowhere with a very polished sound. We are very pleased to have signed them".
The 31st of May, the Swingrowers launched a sold out Parov Stelar's gig at Koko in London, with many UK and European festival appearances over the summer, like The Secret Garden Party.
In November 2012, they had a great and amazing experience: opening Caravan Palace in 3 sold out gigs in UK (21st Nov in London, 22nd Nov in Brighton and 24th of Nov in Norwich)
The latest news that intrigue fans is the newly formed trio of Swingrowers! Alessio Costagliola and his manouche guitar give a blast in the live show! Currently the trio is getting great demand in plenty of international festivals.
In April 2013 they began their first overseas tour around U.S. and Canada, in the major capital cities such as San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Montreal (sold out), New York (sold out), Chigaco, Toronto (sold out), Detroit.
Their new single "Via Con Me" came out the 28th of April 2013, an extract from "Do Not Cover" Ep, released by Freshly Squeezed Music.
