The Voice season four finalists The Swon Brothers have signed with Sony Music Nashville’s Arista imprint. Zach and Colton Swon – the brother duo from Oklahoma who were part of The Voice‘s Team Blake – are currently writing and looking for songs for their major label debut album, with a first single due in the spring of 2014.
Colton said, “Signing with Arista is literally our dream coming true. My brother and I have been chasing this goal for 15 years now. Being a part of The Voice was an unbelievable experience; there isn’t another show like it. Our mentor and friend Blake Shelton gave us the direction and advice we needed to keep this dream alive. We feel blessed beyond measure for the chance to continue to connect with people through our music. Arista is the home we were looking for and we have a great team of people helping us on this journey!”
The Swon Brothers’ performances on The Voice included their tribute to the late George Jones with a rendition of his classic “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes,” as well as Bob Seger‘s “Turn the Page” and Loggins & Messina‘s “Danny’s Song,” both of which landed among iTunes’ Top 10 singles leading up to the close of The Voice, with “Danny’s Song” ultimately hitting Number Two overall and Number One among iTunes’ country Top Songs.
Recently honored with the Rising Star award by the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, the Swons have been touring steadily and making numerous appearances, including playing the halftime show at a recent Arizona Cardinals/Detroit Lions game and singing at the 2013 Warrior Open golf tournament in Dallas for an audience that included former President George W. Bush.
