An in-demand songwriter and gifted vocalist, Sway Clarke is carving out his own path.
One of 8 children born to a Cuban and Jamaican family in Toronto, he was raised on a mixture of hip-hop culture and soul music alongside a fascination with 90’s British guitar music and songwriting. These disparate influences inform his cosmopolitan sound, bringing together elements of soul and contemporary RnB with wittily clever and introspective lyrics under an umbrella of immaculately addictive present day pop.
His first offering, ‘I Don’t Need Much’, inspired by a recent move to Berlin, is a spirited ode to the experience of moving to a new city, with its sensations of liberation, self-sufficiency and the search for a good time, set to an intoxicatingly woozy late-night wall of sound.
Championed early by tastemakers like NME, The FADER and Pigeons & Planes, Sway Clarke is poised to build on his already impressive introduction by continuing to present his brand of crafty songwriting
