Citizen Swing was an American alternative rock band from Spokane, Washington. The band released two albums, Cure Me With the Groove and Deep Down, before disbanding in 1996. Cure Me With the Groove was a jazz-influenced pop album best described as Stevie Wonder meets Stevie Ray Vaughan, while Deep Down was a much heavier album, dropping all of the pop pretense in favor of heavy guitars, soaring vocals, solid and infectious beats and a bit of the 'jazz flair' of the trumpet. Vocalist and lead guitarist Myles Kennedy, formerly of Cosmic Dust, eventually went on to front The Mayfield Four and later Alter Bridge.
