Swimmer, led by singer-songwriter Nicholas Barron, was a popular Chicago band in the late 1990's. The band had an all-star cast of players who now play with Music giants from Mary J. Blige to Beyonce to Justin Timberlake and others. Swimmer's 2 CDs, which make up "The Swimmer Years" were called "The Best of the Year" by Chicago's WXRT radio. These songs came together from playing a legendary weekly gig at The Elbo Room every Thursday where Nicholas and the band would improvise and freestyle. These are basically Live tracks!

Nicholas Barron is Chicago music. He sings like those blues cats that used to play on Maxwell Street. He performs and writes a mix of Acoustic Folk, Blues and Soul

He started in the subways and streets in all kinds of crazy Chicago weather. He founded C.A.S.A. (Coalition for the Advancement of Street Art) to stop the city from banning street art/performance and he and his fellow buskers won!
