I have been calling myself an artist ever since I began to write and produce my own music at 14. I learned how to play the piano, viola, and cello at a very young age, I picked up how to play a drum set in high school, sang in various choirs, danced, performed in musicals and theatre productions, and even taught myself how to play guitar. Despite having a widespread love for music, I have always thought of myself as a singer before everything else.
On my 14th birthday, my parents bought me a Mac laptop and a 49-key MIDI keyboard to start recording and producing my own music. I loved the feeling I got from transforming a song I heard in my head into a tangible work of art that I could easily share with anyone. I was so excited about my newfound passion that I decided it was time to graduate on to live performing. I started by calling up a trusty guitarist friend to play jazz and contemporary music with. We rehearsed weekly until I began booking our own shows around the Chicago-land area. One gig led to another until we had multiple shows a week! I knew for certain that performing and recording was something I wanted to make a career out of.
At 18, I moved to New York to study Recorded Music at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music and have since gotten a full band together to perform with: Katlyn Swanson & The Return. We play at venues like The Bitter End, The Delancey Bar, The National Underground, Ella Lounge, The Iridium Jazz Club, Slane Public House, Bowery Poetry Club, The Living Room, The Hit Factory, and Rockwood Music Hall. Upon graduating, I plan to stay in New York City to focus on promoting myself as a recording artist in addition to working as a booking agent for TurnStyle Music Group. I’m now writing music for my up-coming EP, “Under Cover,” to be released in 2014.

Disable Time delivers a unique blend of rock, funk, latin, and fusion all with a new feel. Based out of Fairfield, Disable Time has taken Connecticut by storm. In under two years they have performed over 50 shows in all corners of the state as well as regular shows in New York City.
Disable Time started as an instrumental band two years ago and successfully managed to cultivate a local following. After some time performing and writing, a desire grew within the group to evolve and they decided to add vocals. In May of 2013 lead singer, Nick Anaya, joined DT bringing the band to a new level. Their creative process is done as a group, incorporating the individuality of the artists while creating a fluid story of intertwining instruments and vocals.
Disable Time recently had their television debut being featured on News Channel 8’s Connecticut Style. Their newest single, “Under African Skies” drops in late July of 2013.
