New Sweden has been sharing their unique flavor of Americana, Folk, and Indie Rock with the greater Philadelphia region since forming in late 2009. The 6-piece outfit molds their sound using a blend of traditional folk instruments (violin, banjo, acoustic guitar, mandolin, pump organ, bass, percussion) with a modern twist, all backed by energetic live performances. The lyrics are sincere, complex, and powerful; sure to speak to any listener willing to lend an ear. 2011 was a great year for New Sweden; the recording and release of their first studio record, “The Mountain” (Recording Engineer Nick DiDia, Producer Ritchie Rubini) stands out as an exciting milestone and success, but not to be overlooked were: sharing the stage with the likes of The Felice Brothers, Kevin Devine, James McMurty, and all artists at NON-COMM, radio appearances on Philadelphia’s WXPN and Wilmington’s WSTW, competing with local Philadelphia artists and ultimately winning the Beta-Hi-Fi Emerging Artist Competition, and a whole slew of other shows along the away.
Includes unlimited streaming of the Mountain via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
