"Hi everybody, I'm Tommy Swisher."
If you aren't yet familiar with the emerging Atlanta artist consider this your introduction. Just as we took Audiomack Studios on the road for SXSW to lock down exclusive new sessions with Dreamville's Omen, Audio Push, Tunji Ige, Dreezy, Towkio & Joey Purp, and frequent Swisher collaborator Rome Fortune, last month we invaded Atlanta's Defiant Studios (home of B.o.B, Kevin Gates and more) to link up with one of Tommy and cook up a brand new track on the spot.
Presented by Tunecore, "So Alive" is the result of Swisher "finding his song" over spirited, jovial production from rising NYC-based producer T-GUT. With a few actual Swishers being passed around and with FKi doing their own thing next door, we played some beats, adjusted the sound (thank to J Rich) and got cranking.
For more material from Tommy Swisher be sure to visit The Other Side of The Moon when his forthcoming project drops on July 7.
