About Nightswim back

Nightswim is Fin Leavell

Texas born. Colorado raised. Florida transplant. California ripened.

Nightswim is a celebration of life living amongst the stars!

It all started in Los Angeles, CA as an experiment in songwriting. You can hear this full experiment in the form of the 'Color Stardust' EP release which was written, recorded & mixed entirely in a Hollywood bedroom.

Not content with bedroom studio antics, Fin traveled to Jacksonville, FL for a new studio. It's here that the next release was recorded.

Fin, along with an entire crew of musicians and engineers, embarked to record almost twenty songs.

Eight of these songs were released as the 'I'm Not on the Moon' full-length album, and two cover songs made it onto compilation releases.

Since the release of I'm Not on the Moon, Fin has been recording the next full length, this time in St. Augustine, FL. Fin has also been busy with side projects.

However, writing and recording are only half the fun of a musical entity, and live shows are a place to hear compositions performed out of their element. Nightswim has played a number of concerts in the Los Angeles, CA and Jacksonville, FL areas over the past couple of years while recording.

Keep checking for new Nightswim dates!
