Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
What’s up, I’m SBO Swampy, I’m a 20-year-old artist from London, Ontario.
Tell us a bit about your most recent release.
My most recent release was ‘Bad Habits’. Just a catchy song I made one night when I was drunk with the incredibly talented producer, ‘HyzeandLows’. I don’t really write any of my songs, they are mostly freestyles, so that night I would say we just caught a vibe, and I was just saying what I felt in the moment. Everything I say in a song is based on real shit that goes on in my life.
When it comes to the global pandemic, how are you keeping yourself out in the public eye while not being able to perform?
I’ve just been on social media a lot and making sure I stay consistent in connecting with fans. I’m also with all the SBO guys every day so we build off each other’s hype. When one of us has a dope creative idea, we all jump in and celebrate together. I’m excited that everything is opening up in Ontario right now so hopefully this summer I’ll be able to interact with fans in person rather than through my phone.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so if you were able to work with ONE fellow Canadian artist, alive or dead, who would you choose?
Honestly, I only really listen to and work with the guys in SBO, but Jazz Cartier is sick so I would probably work with him if I had the chance to. I remember hearing
his ‘Hotel Paranoia’ tape in 2016 and being hella inspired by it.
