The Swon Brothers are performing at The Rodeo Club in San Jose this Wednesday night. The show will most likely sell out, so get your tickets in advance, if possible.
The Swon Brothers gained the recognition of the public when they finished in third place on the fourth season of NBC's, The Voice. They were the first duo to make it from the Top 12 live shows to the season finale.
The Swon Brothers, Zach and Colton, were born in Muskogee, Oklahoma. The brothers started performing when they were children, touring with their parents' Southern gospel group, Exodus, and performing at various local events. By the time Zach 10, he was playing drums for his parents’ band. In 1995, their parents formed a family-style variety show in Wagoner called Westwood Music Show, where the Brothers performed songs ranging from Elvis to Frank Sinatra, as well as country. In 2000, when they were 12 and 15, the brothers started calling themselves The Swon Brothers, and appeared at various venues.
In 2007, Colton auditioned for the seventh season of American Idol and reached the Top 48. Both Zach and Colton also appeared as contestants in 2007 on a local TV show, Gimme the Mike. The Swon Brothers auditioned for The Voice on a whim when asked by their keyboard player who wanted to audition to go along with him. During the auditions, The Swon Brothers turned three chairs, Usher, Blake Shelton, and Shakira . They chose Blake as their coach, and remained on his team the whole season. They ultimately finished in third place.
Following The Voice, The Swon Brothers signed a recording contract with Arista Nashville. They released their first single, "Later On" on December 10, 2013. They debuted the single on The Voice the same day. It sold 23,000 copies in its debut week.
