JG: Spencer Swain is the electric violinist for Zox.
We were having trouble getting his sound for a track on their new album, which will release in early 2008. After trying a few fancy mic setups, he said that he loved the sound when he was out in the room right next to his amp while he was tracking. I set up a super clean signal path with a super flat omni and went straight to tape, and he was happy with that.

That's when violinist Spencer Swain, who had transferred to the University of Rhode Island, joined ZOX.
Swain adds a different twist to the music of ZOX. But with ZOX, the violin is an integral part of the music and Zox says Swain is a different kind of violin player. You won't see too many violin players on stage in orchestras with a lot of tattoos, as Swain has. Swain also does not play the violin fiddle style. Swain, who was a music major at URI, is in a couple other bands.

The band consists of vocalist/guitarist John Zox, violinist Spencer Swain, backing vocalist/guitarist Eli Miller, and bassist Dan Edinberg, and each one contributes to a unique sound combining reggae, classical string music, and alternative rock.
It was Swain who was the backbone, however, constantly jamming on the violin and keeping the crowd compelled.

Spencer Swain / Spencer Swain - ZOX Home >> Fender®: Artists >> Spencer Swain / Spencer Swain - ZOX Home >> Fender®: Artists >> Spencer Swain / Spencer Swain - ZOX Spencer Swain / Spencer Swain - ZOX Spencer Swain / Spencer Swain - ZOX Spencer Swain is a rock violinist who is piercing perceptions and injecting a blistering excitement into the indie rock scene. Spencer has gained well-earned recognition throughout the U.S and Europe as one of the front men for ZOX. Spencer became fascinated with the violin at the age of four and was classically trained from then on into college. He spent many hours in the practice room and on stage performing solo, as well as with orchestras and small ensembles. Music has always been an important part of Spencer's life. After two years of intense music conservatory study, Spencer broke away from the classical scene. He moved to Providence, RI to find a new stage, and a band that would be open to his developing, distinctive electric violin style. He found ZOX, a local college rock band that was playing parties and having fun, but they, too, were looking for something more. "They wanted a classically trained violinist to play leads like a guitar. I thought, sure, I can do that." Within a few months, ZOX became a solidified unit comprised of Eli Miller, vox and guitar, John Zox on drums, Dan Edinberg on bass, and Spencer on violin and vox. Thankfully, someone forgot to tell Spencer Swain that. -The Boston Tab Spencer can also be found lending his skills to independent studio session projects, as well as performing with the progressive-metal band Denimvenom.
