Swatkins is a joyful prophet of positivity. Together with his band, The Positive Agenda, he plays feel-good funk made by and for real human beings. Steve Swatkins is making raw, fresh soulful music without relying on computers or backing tracks. This multi-instrumentalist is a master of the talkbox, an old-school analog effect using his larynx to shape the sound of his keyboard synthesizer sent through a vinyl tube. Think of the funky robot voice from “California Love” or the hair-raising harmony intro to “24 Karat Magic.” Now picture a throwback dance party with a killer live band playing the deepest grooves imaginable, and you’ve got a taste of what The Positive Agenda is all about.
