MUSIC (auditions)


The music of SWW includes different styles of music. You'll find on each album and on stage "straight ahead" songs, but also songs for to think about it.  In the center of all is rock. Influences are:

Kansas, Wishbone Ash, also classical music, Trevor Rabin and Yes, Vertical Horizon, Kerry Livgren, Toto.


PARADISE ROAD is a street in Cape Town, Southafrica. The album includes many impressions of the atmosphare of the Western Cape, down on the top of Southafrica. A really nice and magical region on the planet. Easy going songs are in change to heavy rock songs and also folk rock songs. Produced 2006.


MASQUERADE was the second album of the Band. The intension was to make more rock songs on the album. So the band left more an more the influences of folkrock and went to rock until progressiv rock. Also you'll find on the album emotional ballades. Produced 2010.


SILENT OCEAN was a self made challenge to produce an instrumental album. Everyone nows, without vocals ist's much more difficult to create instrumental interesting songs. This album icludes very different songs, from easy going to Progrock songs, a wide range, but always there's an element of guitar within the songs. As an aditional song der is a reproduced song, called "I Don't know Why". This bonus track is the only one song with vocals. Produced 2014.


CROSS CULTURE CLUB is a collection of ethnical songs, created between 2006 und 2018. Influences of different cultures across the world are in worked in the songs. There are african, arabian, asian and european elements inside the single songs. It is no album of the band which you could expect normally, because there are no rocksongs. This album is'nt already listet on internetsides for music download. Just available here.


BEST of the REST

This album contains songs from the years 2009 to 2012. The sung titles were mostly completed and finalized in 2018. Overall, the album has 14 titles, some instrumental, some sung. It represents songs between the albums "Paradise Road", "Masquerade" and "Silent Ocean". With the post-production in 2018, however, also flowed in current sounds and ideas.
