Shwayze's story of success is considerably short, taking in mind that gut was all he needed to achieve his dream.
In 2005, Shwayze made his own destiny by jumping on-stage with Cisco Adler during a Whitestarr show and free-styling. That defining moment was followed by regular meetings between the two and the result of their creative sessions was more than they could ask for. A bunch of fresh tracks serving as a melting pot of hip-hop rhythms, acoustic guitars and easy-listening melody created a wave of success for both. Shwayze was then signed to Geffen/Suretone Records where he recorded and released his self-titled debut in 2008.
Following the success of their first album, Shwayze and Cisco released two more albums together; 2009's edgy, experimental electro-rock release Let It Beat and last year's more contemporary Island In The Sun.
With the mixtape he just released in collaboration with Sky Blu and Mark Rosas – known all together as W.E.E.D. (We Evolve Every Day) – Shwayze is taking in all aspects of music, experimenting with new sounds and working on creating his first solo album -- due out in fall 2012.
Keep an eye out for what's to come, but in the meantime… sit back, relax and have yourself a Shwayze summer.
