Thunderdrums at The Orange Peel

January 22

Growing up together in Columbia, Joshua Swain and Jordan Miller spent time jamming in various high school bands. Swain, a multi-instrumentalist versed in guitar, bass, and drums, left for Florida's Full Sail University in 2001 while Miller honed his freestyle rap, guitar, and keyboard skills in Columbia. Upon returning in 2002, Swain reconnected with Miller and the two began writing songs in Swain's garage using a drum machine and musical influences that range from Sublime to Tupac to Pink Floyd. The Movement was born. Early incarnations of the band found them as a trio consisting of Swain, Miller, and DJ Jon Ruff. They developed a loyal following as a trio and went on to release their first full length album, entitled On Your Feet. That album, recorded and mixed in 24 studio hours, was released in March of 2004 and continues to be well received by new fans worldwide. World-beat percussion fused to electronica in a unique fashion would be the best description for the solo act known as Thunderdrums.
