GHENGIS NASH release new single 'The Swamp'



12/6/20212 min read

Genghis Nash is truly a global collective of musicians, and at its core are two old friends - from Sao Paulo, Brazil, Michel Nasrallah, and from the Sunshine Coast, Australia, Jackie Barnes (son of the legendary Jimmy Barnes).

Singer/guitarist Michel and drummer Jackie met during their time studying at the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and instantly struck up a close friendship.

The band have recently signed a world-wide deal with Golden Robot Records and are set to deliver their first single ‘The Swamp’, out now on all digital platforms, with their debut EP The Odyssey set to be unleashed in early 2022.

‘The Swamp’ is a heavy hitting, head bobbing rock anthem with prominent guitar riffs and steady as a train drum grooves. The lyrics describe the grit needed to overcome difficult life circumstances, and the desperation that always accompanies them.

During the past 14 years they have travelled the world getting to know
many different cultures and growing their global network of like-minded creatives. A spur of the moment trip Jackie took to Sao Paulo in 2018 spawned the idea of forming a band. When Michel then travelled to Australia not long afterwards, Genghis Nash was born, and the songs that make up their debut EP The Odyssey were written and recorded at Jimmy Barnes’ Freight Train Studios in Sydney.

Over the next year, Michel and Jackie reached out to their vast network of musicians and friends around the world to add their own personalities and influences to Genghis Nash. Some of the wonderful people to contribute to this record include:

- Ty Bailie from Mesa, Washington
- Jade Glasberg from Los Angeles, California
- Joel Burton from Sydney, Australia
- Uyanga Bold from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
- James Saez from Los Angeles, California
- Oscar Zambrano from Mexico City, Mexico
- Fernando Lodeiro from Caracas, Venezuela
- Tod Garnett from Sydney, Australia

Genghis Nash are truly a world-wide project that has brought together an amazingly talented group of artists that have produced some incredibly catchy and intricate rock material with some proggy overtones, that is just bursting to see the light of day!

The Odyssey explores many different influences, with rock ’n’ roll being its native language, but it is so much more than that. It is a celebration of the journeys we undertake in life and the people we meet along the way. It has been a long time coming, but Genghis Nash have arrived!
