Swimmer is an experimental rock-fusion quintet based out of Burlington, VT. Their music transcends convention by fusing the band’s roots in rock, funk, jazz and electronica to create a unique and powerful sound. Conceived in 2014 at New Hampshire’s Plymouth State University, Swimmer has cultivated an intimate fanbase through captivating composition and distinct live performances.
