“Scared to Love” by Swamp Music Players featuring Laura Jacobs
Bad boys are a mystery. Many hide behind a shield of machismo, sometimes hardening themselves from ever really feeling empathy or even love. A band of musicians called the Swamp Music Players turn to folk singer-songwriter Laura Jacobs for guidance on “Scared to Love,” a shiny uptempo seeking to understand why men shadow themselves away in the cold darkness. “Why you so scared to love?” Jacobs poses the staunch question, out of concern rather than a harmful infective. She searches for the answers herself throughout the swirling saloon-style verses, planted right at the center of classic honky-tonk and neo-traditionalism. “I’ve only got myself to blame / Still a part of me thinks you’ll change,” she sings, wrangling conflicting feelings about her suitor whose fallen right through her fingers.
Comeherefloyd – “Born out of this SWAMP MUSIC PLAYERS, a ‘retro-futuristic’ music collective which is a delightful concept in music construction and band philosophy, Laura brings a nostalgic and calm-delight to an interesting single ‘Scared To Love’…………”

This year (2018) Swamp Music Players appeared on the soundtrack of ‘HellCat’s Revenge’ a Len Kabasinski action film! You may remember Len from his fame and special appearances on ‘Red Letter Media’ but he has his own following in the Midwest as an auteur of DIY action films. It’s a really amazing oppurtunity for the Swamp Music Players to be part of the filmography of such a notable folk hero of B-movies. We are big fans of RedLetter media and retro style films so it is a huge honor for us. ‘HellCat’s Revenge’ was released via Cinedigm and distributed in Canada via Universal Home Entertainment!
This has inspired Swamp Music Players to become more involved in soundtrack projects as we already have a following in Hollywood.
Swamp Music Players were awarded the shirt off Jack’s back from the film “Portal To Hell”! It is very sad that Roddy Piper passed away as we all are huge fans and “They Live” is one of our favorite films. This is why we donated to his crowd funding campaign and gladly hyped “Portal To Hell”. Roddy Piper and “Portal To Hell” team was very cool to award SMP and our management Crushwb for promoting them on social media but the recent bad news had cast a shadow. We are finally glad to report some good news that Roddy’s last film “Portal To Hell” will have its world premier at the Toronto International Film Festival! We hope Roddy will be remembered for this short film, the trailer is out and we are very excited about it!
Urban Crime by Swamp Music Players Swamp Rock influences combine with 1980s style Americana and Alt Music to create a LoFi retro-futuristic anachronism. Really happy about the release of our EP album ‘Urban Crime’ it made a couple chart positions in Canada and The Netherlands and it opened new doors for us with college and community radio stations that never played our music before giving us a first chance. A very fun album to make and we made some Youtube videos as well.
March 13th the action film we made soundtrack contributions to ‘HellCat’s Revenge’ is released via Cinedigm! Cinedigm is the leading independent content distributor in the United States! #USA 🇺🇸 Also distributed in Canada via Universal Home Entertainment!
Swamp Music Players present ‘URBAN CRIME’ Extended play record on Compact Disc. LoFi Retro Futuristic Swamp Rock & Cosmic Americana ‘Urban Crime’ EP is the third official album release from the Canadian based internationally collaborative music collective. ‘Urban Crime’ was recorded primarily with a Tascam 4-track cassette player and Roland BR-600 digital demo recorder to best achieve an authentic retro soundscape.
We are proud to feature the phenomenal vocals of Kaity Joyce (San Diego), Sugar Parks (Hollywood’s ‘Sugar Parks and the Massacre’) and Vancouver Island vocalist Hilary Beckett. Special voice acting cameo on the experimental track ‘It’s Urban Crime’ by cult film star Art Hsu (‘Crank 2 High Voltage’ , ‘The FP’). Art Hsu recreates with the Swamp Music Players a scene from one of our favorite cult films ‘The FP’. Swamp Rock influences combine with urbanized 1980s style Americana to create a retro-futuristic anachronism. Swamp Music Players are fighting the future in the 21st century.
