WHO'S SWANKY?

I live to groove and I groove to live. I put things into perspective. I'm a passionate person who brings it to life and to my own craft. I'm a creative singer, songwriter, lyricist, trumpeter, DJ, producer, composer, arranger, music aficionado, lover, fun-lovin' (fun to love and fun to be loved by) and last but not least, all around cool guy. I'm a musician for hire and am becomin' a name that is dropped both locally and internationally. Call me Swanky. I'm out here to musically influence the world and to spread love through music.

Open your mind and I'll open your soul...

This joint is pretty low key...my thoughts spill on the canvas. You can use your paintbrush to make use of the colours.

I am the leader of a hip hop/jazz/funk band called The Vibrasonic Sessions

I am 1/2 of The International Incident a.k.a. (with Chile's own Max Damage)

I am Octavio Santos (yes, my birth name) when it comes to trumpet work and vocals

I am Swanky when it comes to mic work and rippin' it lyrically

You will find me in many projects...lend me your eardrums.

I was gonna flip multiple tables when I saw this from a distance thinking a cop ticketed my whip. Upon closer inspection I said I’m aight. There a better reason why I smile everyday though…
