Formed in 2005, swimming[into]view got its start in the childhood basement of bassist Kullen Quinlan. Early rehearsals showed promise from day one. All four members have very different musical backgrounds. John (drums) has a love for jazz and hip-hop. He is the most experienced performer of the group, including Jazz and Swing Choir band. His beats are driving force behind all [sv] tunes. Drew (vocals) was a vocal lead in Show Choir, but has his heart in rock and alternative music. He is an equally experienced performer as John and is very comfortable taking lead on stage. Josh (guitar) started playing at 15 and has jumped around from many different types of music. He played in punk, rock, acoustic, pop and alternative acts over the years. Kullen (bass) started playing bass the day the band rehearsed the first time. He has a background in punk, pop and rock music. He picked up his instrument quickly and has become a major part of [sv]’s sound.
[sv] wrote and recorded 2 albums in their first 3 years of playing together. Shows were abundant around the Fort Wayne area including Cincinnati, West Lafayette and Bloomington. Playing everything from bars/house parties to Relay 4 Life events, [sv] grew its fanbase at each show. In 2009, [sv] started writing songs for its 3rd release. Before the album could be completed, 3 members moved to various parts of the country and plans for the band were put on hold. In 2013, the band started rehearsing again after all 4 members moved back to Fort Wayne. After years of practicing and writing new songs, [sv] played its first live show since 2010 in March 2016.
