The Pittsburgh-based quartet combine British prog rock, folk rock and ’70s schmaltz on debut album, due for release in 2023!!!
“This tasty debut single is shot through with heavy folk lustre and the sort of drive and vocals that would fit right in on a Barracuda-era Heart record […] There’s more to come from them in 2023, so keep yer eyes peeled.” CLASSIC ROCK [UK]
Tee Pee Records – New York’s legendary underground rock label – is thrilled to announce the signing of Pittsburgh-based Swiss American quartet, Sweat, and with it, the release of their debut single ‘Jane’ and debut album in 2023.
After leaving her home in Basel with an ear and heart hungry for authentic vintage rock, it didn’t take long for vocalist/organist Sue Pedrazzi to settle into her new home alongside Steel City gemstones; Richard Stanley (Rich the Band), Dan Hernandez (Limousine Beach, Cruces) and Kayla Schureman (Century III).
Together, the foursome formed Sweat; a traditional band with fresh and energetic new ideas that set out a stall for fans of British prog rock sensibilities, fragile American folk and heaps of 70s schmaltz. Drawing influence from the likes of Deep Purple and The Moody Blues, the strutting beat of The Who, and the wailing highs and broken lows of Heart, their debut album is scheduled for release in early 2023 on Tee Pee Records.
“‘Jane’ is just one of those songs that make Sweat, Sweat,’ explains Pedrazzi. “It’s driving, yet gentle. It is urgent, yet sweet. It is a rocker with depth. The song describes how it felt to learn to break free from self-pity and learn responsibility for my own mistakes and my own happiness.”
In the meantime however, embark on a journey with Sweat and their debut single ‘Jane’ as they lovingly envelope all they borrow, and seek to become the music makers behind your new favourite records.
