Sony Music Nashville Signs The Swon Brothers to the Arista Nashville Roster  
     Nashville, TN – (November 1, 2013) — Sony Music Nashville is pleased to announce the signing of The Voice
Season 4 finalists The Swon Brothers to its Arista Nashville roster. 
Zach and Colton Swon – the brother duo from Oklahoma whose signature
sibling harmony and spirited personalities solidified them as a fan
favorite as part of The Voice’s Team Blake – are currently
writing and securing songs for their major label debut album, with a
first single due in the spring of 2014.
“Signing with Arista is literally our dream coming true,” says
Colton Swon.  “My brother and I have been chasing this goal for 15 years
now.  Being a part of The Voice was an unbelievable
experience; there isn’t another show like it.  Our mentor and friend
Blake Shelton gave us the direction and advice we needed to keep this
dream alive.  We feel blessed beyond measure for the chance to continue
to connect with people through our music.  Arista is the home we were
looking for and we have a great team of people helping us on this
Zach Swon offers, “We are so excited to get into the studio to make
new music for our fans.  It’s amazing and humbling for us to have so
many fans supporting us now and asking us when we are going to have a
record out.  We are looking forward to our new relationship with Sony
and making some history together.”

No strangers to the stage, The Swon Brothers have been performing
since they were old enough to talk.  When they were 9 and 11 years old,
they asked their parents to “drop by” Nashville on the way to their
Florida vacation so they could “get a record deal.”  They marched into
every label on Music Row to play for anyone who would listen and
continued making trips to Music City to hone their craft.
Now seasoned musicians, the brothers’ impressive performances on The Voice
included their tribute to the late George Jones with a rendition of his
classic “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes,” as well as Bob Seger’s “Turn
the Page” and Loggins & Messina’s “Danny’s Song,” both of which
landed among iTunes’ Top 10 singles leading up to the close of The Voice
voting the morning following their performance, with “Danny’s Song”
hitting #2 overall and #1 among iTunes’ country Top Songs.  
Recently honored with the Rising Star award by the Oklahoma Music
Hall of Fame, the Swons have been increasingly busy since their time on The Voice,
touring steadily and making numerous appearances, including playing the
halftime show at a recent Arizona Cardinals/Detroit Lions game and
singing at the 2013 Warrior Open golf tournament in Dallas for an
audience that included former President George W. Bush.  They also
enjoyed a rare treat during a recent trip to Washington, D.C., when Rep.
Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) from their home state gave them a private tour
of the U.S. Capitol before their performance at the Susan G. Komen
Honoring The Promise Benefit Concert the following evening.
