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. I² (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’m strapped in the studio and ready to weave up some more playlists for the office of @drfabiantai and Associates. They’re gonna be opening soon from their renovation and they’re gonna need some more music!! I’m gonna be connecting the dots from a bunch of genres. (at The Groove Cafeteria)
@ishykabibbles introduced me to authentic Thai cuisine on the (early) halfway mark of me being old, LOL. I’ve subpar Pad Thai in my lifetime, so she made sure I got the goods. Everything was so good! I left full and content. I love how she’s a generous foodie and an amazing presence in my life. The amount of thank yous I can give her are countless. Seriously…thank you. (at Thai Signature)
