Owls of the Swamp is the creation of Australian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Pete Uhlenbruch. His music holds an earthy humbled innocence focusing around his distinctive guitar fingerpicking which is cushioned on ambient drifting sounds that may feature piano, cello or subtle electronic resonance. There is a gentleness about his music heightened by hypnotic dreamy vocals that lull your mind into blurring the edges of reality.
His latest project has him working with special guest Marketa Irglova (The Swell Season) and Greenhouse Studio’s Sturla Mio Thorisson. The as-yet-unreleased single suggests the new musical territory Uhlenbruch is exploring on the album he’s currently recording in Europe.
He has a number of upcoming tour dates during March/April in the UK and Germany. Check his Facebook for details.
