bio

Astral Swans is the main project of acclaimed Canadian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Swann. After forming in 2012, The music of Astral Swans is a spellbinding portal into the psyche of acclaimed Canadian songwriter Matthew Swann. As the first artist signed to Madic Records (an Arts & Crafts affiliate label helmed by Juno award-winning musician Dan Mangan), Swann’s 2015 debut “All My Favourite Singers Are Willie Nelson” was described by Noisey as “a stark, beautiful project; one that embraces darkness rather than shying away from it.” Astral Swans’ sophomore album, 2018’s “Strange Prison (co-produced by Preoccupations’ Scott Munro) earned even more widespread attention from PasteTiny Mix Tapes, and a live performance on which highlighted Swann’s singular talents at “grabbing listeners’ attention and holding onto it.”
