Swan Dive: William & Marlys

| November 4, 2010 | 0 Comments

The cool, breezy sounds of Swan Dive are created by singer, songwriter and guitarist Bill DeMain and stunning vocalist Molly Felder who formed the group in Nashville in 1995. The duo have released nine studio albums, and their 2004 William & Marlys is a perfect showcase for their tremendous talent.

Swan Dive has appeared on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, opened shows for Norah Jones, Over the Rhine and Sixpence None The Richer, and their music has been heard on television shows including Felicity, The L Word and Unfabulous. They have attracted fans both in the U.S. and in Asia, particularly Japan, Korea and Thailand, where they’ve earned four Top 10 singles along with television appearances and multi-city tours. In early 2002, Swan Dive’s Circle won in The 1st Annual Independent Music Awards for Best Pop Song.
