Swifts And Sparrows was formed by frontman Blake Reade and guitarist Shem Phillips. After trying fruitlessly to put a band together, they decided to focus on writing and recording songs. Soon after recording their second demo Matt Galloway was recruited to take up bass duties. This was soon followed by the entry of Sam Macdonald onto drums. The four piece band continued writing and shaping their 'sound'.
The band made their live debut alongside good friends Two Shots Fired on October 2nd, 2010. Not long after, they were booked for a spot on the Come and Live New Zealand tour. They were privileged enough to play alongside NZ greats, All Left Out, and international acts Ascend The Hill and The Ember Days.
The future is looking bright for the boys in SAS. With offers of radio time and touring, they are excited for what is to come. Stay tuned!
