Swamp Thing

Midge McCleary is a jazz, funk, folk, blues inspired guitarist and has been singing and playing his way around the globe for many years. Having been compared to the likes of ‘John Martyn’ with a funk/blues twist, McCleary is predominantly a finger-style player.

Although having played and performed with many different groups and lineups he is now embarking on a solo acoustic tour, no backing band, no gimmicks or fancy effects. Armed with his acoustic guitar and Bigfoot Stomp box, he uses alternate tunings, percussive rhythms and funky progressions to drive his groove.

Known for his improvisational nature 'in music and life', many of his songs touch on the impermanence of life and the joy of being able to go with that feeling and so the songs are never played the same way twice live, so you always get to hear a fresh perspective. “As a solo performer I get to go with what ever I’m feeling at the time which brings a great freedom to my music and performance.”

Having three albums to his name he has recently returned from a tour of the UK, Channel Islands and France, where he wrote most of the material for his latest album 'Love Bus' which he is currently touring throughout NZ.

He has also just signed with South Island based indie label ‘Hear no Evil’ and is currently working on his 4th album.
