Pop quiz: What do you get
when you have guest artists Ryan Adams, Mark Ronson, Sean Lennon and Wilco’s
Pat Sansone on your CD? In the case of American
singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Richard Swift, it’s magic.

 

 

Swift’s next CD/LP – The
Atlantic Ocean
– is ready for an April 7 release and it’s a lush musical
banquet of danceable sound that moves from Doo-Wop to pop to ragtime to Motown
with plenty of synthesizers sprinkled throughout.

 

 

So
what does all that mean? Swift classifies the sound as “Prince sitting in
on John Lennon’s Plastic Ono sessions.”

 

 

Check
out the sound yourself on Swift’s Web site, where he has a video for “Lady
Luck” posted — Swift
