Current Swell Partners With CMT To Premiere "I Want A Bird" Official Music Video

Directed by Leah Nelson, Partner at production company Giant Ant (Nintendo, PBS, NBA, Target), the video is bright and playful, overlaid with animation while the band plays instruments made of paper.

The roots rock band started with modest expectations, playing shows in settings that ranged from backyards to beaches and using social media to grow their audience. Since then, they have supported artists like Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K’Naan, K-OS, The Beach Boys, The Tragically Hip and more. Through the years of constant touring and slow but steady build of momentum, Current Swell—Scott Stanton (vocals/guitar), David Lang (vocals/guitar), Ghosty Boy (bass) and Chris Petersen (drums)—have continuously grown as songwriters and live performers, while keeping their sound authentic to who they are as individuals and as a unit.
