Swampy & the Note Troll is a Canadian songwriting and production team originally comprised of NASA scientist and hydroponic systems expert Cody "Swamp" Thompson & professional engineer and music producer Josh "the Note Troll" Maitland. Their First full length album, "Mandatory Minimums" was released March 27th, 2015, and is a tribute to anyone who has been jailed, derailed or failed by a system which favours wealth over health and profits over people - The supporting 2015 summer tour saw the addition of three new members to the ranks, including expert percussionist Bambalamb, who has toured with acts as diverse as Issac Hayes, Bodycount & Ras Michael, classically trained jazz guitarist (and fellow scientist) Sean Ratcliffe, and top shelf drummer Kelly Badger, son of the Bass/Guitarist/Vocalist of the legendary Scenics! Mark Henry, longtime friend and high-school bandmate to K-Bad jumped in on Keys and Bass in 2018 and Album #2 is well under way with plans for release in late 2018.
STNT bring a reggae and blues soaked rock & roll party to every venue they play by combining original music, storytelling and their own take on well known covers from the 70's up to present day.

Glacial Erratic (aka Dave Loopstra) sings soulful, meaningful and socially important songs about how, at the annual family reunion, he really loves his Aunt Peggy's potato salad but isn't crazy about her yams, which are super gross because for some reason she makes them with raisins.
This one time, Glacial ate too many pot cookies at a party. This caused him serious anxiety about where he should put his hands. Maybe in his pockets? That felt even weirder. Eventually he had to leave. He walked home but hid in the ditch every time a car turned onto the street. Pot cookies are not something you should serve at parties if you want people to be, like, 'social' and whatnot.
Glacial encourages us to ask more serious questions like, "Why doesn't uncle Bob just trim his freakin' nose hairs?" and he is not afraid to stand up to Samsung (whose dishwashers totally suck), which takes real courage. His lyrics are raw and true (i.e "Sometimes my cat is really annoying. He walks in the kitchen and he's like 'Meow,' and I'm like 'Shut up Lily. F***'!") which is a song about how annoying the sound of "Meow" actually is. Glacial lives in Thornbury with his wife, two kids, and cat.
