Music of the Day: Sierra Swan - Tangerines

Tangerines is the first single off Sierra Swan's EP 'Tangerines'. As the daughter of guitarist Billy Swan, she and her sister Planet followed in their father's footsteps and learned the trade of performing early on. Sierra played at various coffee houses and dive bars around Los Angeles in the late 90's while also playing in the band Dollshead with Graham Edwards. The duo released Frozen Charlotte in 1998 before being dropped by MCA. Swan's creative aspirations were still intact; she contributed vocals to Cold's 13 Ways to Bleed on Stage and Year of the Spider albums and collaborated with the Neptunes' Chad Hugo before signing a solo deal with Atlantic. While writing and recording material for her debut album, Sierra's mother took ill and passed away. It wasn't long before Swan once again found herself without a label. A chance meeting with songwriter Linda Perry got things back on track; throughout 2005 the two wrote and recorded material for her first proper album, and 'Ladyland' was released on Interscope in spring 2006. The album featured guest vocals by Aimee Mann and additional production work by Bill Bottrell (Sheryl Crow, Elton John). Swan followed that album with an EP release in 2007 entitled Coward, as well as issuing digital albums, including 2008's 'Queen of the Valley' and 2009's self-produced 'Girl Who Cried Wolf'. In 2014 she returned with 'Good Soldier', an album produced by Smashing Pumpkins leading man Billy Corgan. Other projects include CATERWAUL and W/CHILD.
