The Swansons - Christmas Song (Official Music Video)
From Philadelphia, PA, Joe Finley has had a lifelong passion for music. He has been writing songs most of his life and received his first songwriters award in 2006 for a song that he had written titled, "Keep on Dreamin.". Joe is a multi-award-winning performer who received "National Showcase Artist of the Year" honors in 2009 by the Los Angeles Music Awards. Joe's work was again recognized as his record, "Relevant" received "Breakthrough Album of the Year" in 2010. Joe Finley has had nine independent albums to date and is currently finishing number ten with The Swansons new release, "Country This."
Angie Finley moved from a small Chicago Illinois suburb, ‘Channahon’ to Southern California in search of a dream. Angie had just graduated from the University of St. Francis in Joliet IL, where she majored in Mass Communications with a focus in broadcasting and video production. From 2005 to 2007 Angie worked as Entertainment Anchor on "Exploring Joliet." This was a very comfortable position for Angie and seemed to be a point of interest that she would eventually pursue. After finding limited success in Los Angeles, Angie put her dreams temporarily on hold and took advantage of other opportunities that had presented themselves outside of the entertainment industry.
In 2012 Joe and Angie met and fell in love. Joe Finley was in the recording studio working on a rather painful project that he later titled, "Writing Through the Pain." Joe was using this time in his life to try and heal as he expressed his feelings and emotions through songwriting following the tragic death of his wife Laura.
Angie began driving Joe to the studio and would soon be asked to accompany him on a song that he had written about their dating experience titled, "Beautiful Mess." Joe had sensed something very special happening and asked Angie to team up with him to begin a new musical journey. It didn't take too much persuading to kick Angie's dream back into gear. She was ALL-IN! They had just begun recording their first self-titled album together and the Swansons were born.
With their first album complete, The Swansons took their show on the road. They began performing in Los Angeles and Hollywood and won the favor of several promoters. In the process the Swansons found a solid line-up for their live shows and have formed a bond that is easily recognizable just as soon as they hit the stage.
The Swansons have had the great fortune to open for many national acts some of which are legends. From Wayne Newton to Berlin to Missing Persons to Tommy Tutone & the list goes on. The Swansons have shared the stage with the Legendary Latino Rock band Malo as well as Regge Superstar Pato Banton. They have been able to unite audiences of nearly every genre and are now heading to Nashville Tennessee to pursue their dream in country music.
