A Little Story About Swath

Swath came together as a full four-piece instrumental band in early 2004.

Based in Broome County, New York, guitarists Dan Micholychak and Bob Aiken, bassist Kevin Kober and drummer Bijoy Datta combine a blend of diverse influences into their original sound.


The band has established a home studio in the Goodwill Theatre in Johnson City a growing group of performing artists with a strong interest in its communitys local history.

Playing an instrumental style that ranges from ambient and minimal to heavy metal, Swath has become known for its wide and thick sound, moving melodies and counterharmonies, and complex and non-traditional songs.

The band released its second full-length album, “Confluence”, in January 2009.

Swath previously released “A Bygone Era” in April 2006 and a one-song demo, “True Position”, in early 2005.
