With an earthy acoustic rock / pop sound combining the elements of saxophone, harmonica and some tasteful looping, Domenick brings a unique sound to the singer / songwriter genre. While gigging for the last six years, he has honed his skills as both the energetic crowd pleaser, and the subtle tunesmith, and has gained the enthusiastic support of a wide-ranging audience. At thirty-one, Swentosky has been playing guitar for twelve years, saxophone for twenty-two years and harmonica for five. He was a member of The Penn State Blue Band, and played guitar in a couple rock-n-roll bands before branching out on his own. Domenick lives in central Pennsylvania. He's also a heck of a fly fisherman. The album 'Greytime' was written over the course of a couple years. While coming out of a bad relationship and into a good one, while coming out of the workforce and back to college, and while getting back to music and coming into his own as a songwriter, Domenick began writing for the first time. What emerged was an album that tells a story. Appearing in the order they were written, the songs here truly form an 'album' of material. You can hear the progression from wanting and wondering to discovery and enlightenment. With bluesy songs like 'Come On Around' and 'Just a Memory,' Swentosky is found a bit angry and lamenting the long end of a broken love, while the acoustic ballad 'The Last Time' and up-tempo 'Hideaway' speak of a new love found with a new way of life to go with it. The song 'Saturday' is literally a marriage proposal and the arrangment of 'Storm Inside the Calm' shows Domenick's talent for both simple and complex arrangments. With saxophone and harmonica work sprinkled throughout, 'Greytime' has a lot of life in an acoustic album. Swentosky often writes with big, moving melodies that stick in your head. Experience ..... Greytime.
