Crowd Pleaser ⛽☢ country rock “retro futurism” by Swamp Music Players. Featuring and co-written by Virginia Americana artist Joseph Gearheart. The Swamp Music Players are an international collective of artists with a passion for swamp music and Cosmic Americana. ‘Crowd Pleaser’ is so retro it’s now!
Special guest on backing vox, Hollywood’s “Sugar Parks”. Produced and mixed by Wynn Gogol. Mastered at 1 Ton Studio.
Transistorized Southern Roots Rock with authentic plate-reverb, retro tech synth inspired by John Carpenter and customized effects.’Crowd Pleaser’ is a fun retro track of Swamp Rock and Cosmic Americana. The song was inspired bythe literature of Hunter S. Thompson and Philip K. Dick as well as mirroring of events between the 1970s and current day. The new cold war, the rise of populism and the cry for freedom. We live in interesting times.

Roddy Piper WWE legend and star of the cult John Carpenter film “They Live”. Swamp Music Players put up for auction his movie costume worn in his last film “Portal To Hell”. Our manager Crushwb was gifted the item by the production company for helping to promote the film on social media. We’ve kept some memorabilia sent to us but can no longer store the costume so now have it up for auction in California.We are raising funds for our next EP “Urban Crime”.
Exciting fun for Swamp Music Players as we have this October some of our American friends fly in to record an Americana track with us! Joseph Gearheart is an underground folk poet from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and Sugar Parks is a singer from Hollywood California.
We co-wrote a track with Mr Gearheart and was so pleased with it we invited him to Victoria BC to record with us in a real studio! Titled “Crowd Pleaser” ☢⛽it’s both lyrically and musically rich. Drawing upon that feeling of listening to late 1970s Americana and dug into upon cultural themes that have proved cyclical (oddly retro) but relevant today. Most of all we really wanted to make a song our fans would really enjoy and had them in mind. It’s exciting that we have made so many friendships with artists that we can invite them to work on such a project.
