They are comprised of lead singer Andrew Swayze, alongside high school friends Hendrik Wipprecht (guitar), Zackary Blain (drums) and Ben Simms (bass). Lead single 'Suddenly' is backed with the epic, 10 minute jam-fest known as 'Reciprocation'.
Tasmania is known around the world as The Island of Inspiration and it's no secret that the albums that have inspired A.Swayze & the Ghosts came from classic artists such as Iggy & The Stooges, Television, Fugazi, The Ramones and Australia’s kings of punk, The Saints. Elements of these masterful artists from an earlier era can be found in the band's DNA and have allowed them to grow into their own world, to create their own scene, on an island that also has much deep and meaningful history, with potential to have some new rock n' roll history too.
