Swimmer One are Hamish Brown and Andrew Eaton. They spend most of their time together writing pop music in a tiny attic room on the Scottish coastline. Difficult to categorise, and not fitting into any ‘scene’, the duo’s music has been compared to everyone from the Pet Shop Boys and the Associates to the Blue Nile and the Who.
Hamish is a musician, producer and committed hard-worker who, as well as having played in various bands, has written the music for films about Samuel Beckett and Scottish Ballet and recorded the score for an existential clown show about cannibalism and polar exploration.
Andrew is a singer-songwriter whose music, before Swimmer One, found its way into one guitar band, one cabaret act, one play and one short film, but mostly into his cupboard.
