Swanny River makes the house jump wherever he goes. For over 25 years, he's been a fixture on the club scene in New York City, developing his own unique East Coast style, and creating SR Music Group to showcase the talents of his fellow out artists. Swanny's also the host of RWS Radio, where you can find the weekly Rollin' Wit Swanny mixtape program. He's definitely not playing around.
