Need a gift for a gifted musician?
The Sweeping Tiles are an ambitious alternative rock/dance duo with electronic elements. Our goal is to write steady, accessible and marketable-music that sticks in listener’s heads, both on and off the dance-floor. We write, record, and perform all of our own music and sounds. As active multi-instrumentalists who are equally comfortable playing guitar, bass, samplers and synths, we are happily and stylistically versatile. The song comes first, but we can play a complex solo at the drop of a hat. Before The Sweeping Tiles, Ian Lutz studied rock and jazz guitar, and then classical guitar at the University of Wisconsin Madison with a BS in music performance. Nate Sweeting is a multi-instrumentalist with extensive experience in sound engineering for live sound and studio production, working with notable Musicians, Churches, and Studios.
Our instruments are extensions of our beings, and music is the blood and pulse that gives us life. All of our time and energy goes into our music. We are determined to secure a record deal and reach as many people as possible, embracing and adapting to the music of today and tomorrow. Our dream is to turn a career out of our music and we are receptive to ideas and influences that will make this possible. The Sweeping Tiles play regularly at local establishments and benefits. We’ve made a name for ourselves and network on multiple online platforms including; Facebook, Soundcloud, Myspace, and Reverbnation- steadily climbing the Local Chicagoland Reverbnation charts, ranking 7 out of 200+ as of 3/15/2013. We are intent on creating a relationship with a label that is as progressive, ambitious, and resourceful. We want to continue to expand our music and our fan base, and form a partnership with a label who wants to grow and succeed along with us. Have any ideas? Please write us back with advice or opportunities, we would like to know what you think.
