|Tema: J SWAN DOOLEY - tranquilo pero muy bueno Jue 31 Mayo 2012, 21:28|| |
My name is J Swan Dooley, and I am a songwriter and performer from Tennessee. My performances are solo and based around the guitar, with the additional use of keyboards, harmonica, loops, and other live instrumentation. J Swan Dooley is mostly my real name, with J Swan being the fictional part in place of where the name Jason is normally present. This name was given to me by two of my closest friends after an obsession I once had with a black swan that lives in our hometown.
I have a D.I.Y. (do it yourself) approach to most of the projects I take on, whether it’s songwriting, recording, printing CDs, making merchandise, etc. I do not believe that this means a lack in quality; I see it as a challenge to use what is available and at hand to create something uncommon or unusual. I cannot fully express the love I have for this challenge. Maybe that sounds a little cheesy, but the daily attempt to make something remarkable out of nothing or very little is what gets me out of bed early every morning.
