Swats Candy Kitchen
Here's what some people have to say about Kirby Swatosh: 'Hey, that guy owes me money!!!!' Some other quotes: 'Enthralling,luminous,spell binding,astonishing'...but enough about his hair. 'Kirby Swatosh has been called the James Taylor of Clark County. He is adept at blending folk and pop-music to something closer to The Beatles. His new self-released album SWAT'S CANDY KITCHEN smacks of McCartney, and XTC with just a dash of sweet baby James thrown in. His songwriting emulates the FAB FOUR. It's upbeat and generally happy, even when dealling with loss. The James Taylor references come from the fact that Swatosh usually performs alone with his guitar and also from his reflective, well crafted lryics. Case in point: 'She wants her laughter back/After years of wearing black/Surely her debts must all be paid/He wants her new address/to close the book on old regrets/He wants to see her sadness fade'from 'TOGETHER IN TIME' Brad McCray-PDX.com 'Kirby's music is a blend of thoughtful observations on life and love. His songs frequentley have a humorous twist which underscores his basic playful philosophy on life. He also has always been polite and kept his room very neat and clean.' KIRBY'S MOTHER.
