Who is Martin Foster Swinger? Freeing your essence—your body, your masculinity, your connection to other men—starts with freeing your voice. The Godfather of Bear Music (so dubbed ten years ago by Bearapalooza founder and Bear Your Soul host Freddy Freeman), Martin Swinger brings his cockeyed optimism and boundless energy as a singer/songwriter, educator, and facilitator back to Easton Mountain. His music spans autism, oysters, dyslexic theology, Betty Boop, and Buddha with performance panache and ingenious songs which are surprising, intimate, outrageous, and true. At Bear Your Soul, Martin returns to lead us in his edgy and exhilarating improvisational singing games and forms, designed to stimulate the spirit and uplift the voice. Martin builds skills in scat singing, duets, riffs, harmonics, soloing, finally leading to full group improvisation. Martin is a founding member of the a cappella improv ensemble, ImproVox, and can be heard on numerous albums, including Bear Naked, available at CDBaby.com. Easton is proud to welcome Martin back to Bear Your Soul
