“Omega Swan had me reminiscing of going to Buzz Fest as a youngin’, just waiting for Slash to come out with the failed Velvet Revolver. Delivering booming grooves and plenty of wah-soaked guitar solos, Omega Swan had every long haired kid in a black t-shirt head banging. I even caught a woman who had to be over 70 air-drumming along. No matter what genres you’re inclined to, it’s hard to deny that Omega Swan can entertain.” – The Deli Magazine

“These dudes come more alive than Frampton.” – Impose Magazine

“The Flaming Lips… with balls.” – 102.9 The Buzz

“Omega Swan makes music unpretentious and unafraid of acid riffs or electric spirals.”

– Lockeland Springsteen


Nashville’s own rock band Omega Swan exclusively premiered their latest track, “Autonation” via  In “Autonation,” Omega Swan fuses futuristic guitar and synth hooks along with powerful rock vocals. The song itself is commentary on modern culture drawing parallels between automated technology and a seemingly automated American society.

Marcus Garceau (guitar, vocals, synthesizers) describes the song as “encouraging listeners to think for themselves, find their own truths, and pursue whatever it is that makes them feel fulfilled.”

Omega Swan has developed their signature modern sound that harkens to bands like The Killers and The Flaming Lips.  Working with engineer Edsel Holden (The Raconteurs, The Lumineers, The Insurgency, etc..) “Autonation” is a step forward.

In addition to their new song, Omega Swan played to a sold out Nashville audience to compete in Lightning 100‘s Road to Roo competition, where they will compete against Nashville’s top rock bands in order to continue their journey to hopefully be chosen to play the annual Bonnaroo Festival.

The next level of competition takes place as follows:

Road to Roo: City Finals

March 28th @ The Basement East

Free Show // 21+ // 7PM Doors

Get there before 9PM to get a voting ballot // Voting starts at 9pm

Omega Swan will be one of four bands in the final show and the winner will play the State Finals against the winner of the Memphis City Finals. Whoever wins the State Finals will play at Bonnaroo!

Omega Swan is building a foundation for an exciting  2017 with more tracks and live performances on deck to be announced.


With rave reviews from The Deli Magazine, Vents Magazine and now AXS, Omega Swan is quickly becoming Nashville’s next rock force to be reckoned with. Comprised of Marcus Garceau (guitar, vocals, synthesizers), Will Burgess (bass) and Aaron Westine (drums) the group has spent much of the last year redefining their sound and style in and around Music City, playing countless shows and working in respected Nashville studios such as Sound Emporium, Red Fern and Redact Studios. The trio’s music can be heard regularly on Nashville’s radio airwaves and on major television networks including Showtime and Netflix (Shameless). Their single, “Hate Love,” hit #2 on All Access’s ‘Top 10 Taking Off’ radio chart the week of it’s release.
