Dirk Schwenk and the truth
Dirk Schwenk and the Truth. New Record "Along the Road" Summer 2018.
”Originally hailing from Annapolis, Maryland, Dirk Schwenk and his four-piece band, The Truth, is genuinely and truthfully honest when crafting the extraordinarily remarkable musical compositions. 9.8/10 Stars”
- Jessica Right (Reviewer - Music Industry News Network)
…”Initially, the melody and the emotion of the ambiance sweep you off your feet in themselves. Almost as if the track would be equally effective if sung in an unfamiliar language – it just feels interesting, it feels like it means something real to the artist. Fortunately, in addition to everything, there is a detectable story-line, you can hear the emotion relating to each and every word as they pour out around you, and in my opinion – everything within this song is deeply rooted in the artist’s intended sentiments. Schwenk’s voice is beautifully genuine, smooth yet gritty enough to give everything an added touch of passion.”…

“Gluing crushing heartfelt lyrics to undeniably catchy drum riffs, greasy guitar work and soulful keyboard playing, the opening song “Table Set For Two”, covering the theme of betrayal, is four and a half minutes of damn near perfect Americana music. This is the soundtrack to the last few minutes of any relationship you’ve ever watched crumble before your eyes.”

“Along The Road is guaranteed to pack a sonic punch that will have you coming back again and again for another listen. Dirk knows how to write songs that hit you hard and stick with you long after they’ve ended. If he hasn’t infected radio yet, I trust it will happen soon.”
- Joshua (J.Smo) Smotherman @ Middle Tennessee Music
“From the moment you hit the play button, you can immediately connect with the tuneful melodies and the infectious beats that fuel Dirk’s tracks. In addition to that, his vocal range is dynamic and enticing, making for a very distinctive twist. Dirk writes songs that are obviously very personal to him, but he is such a good songwriter that he doesn’t necessarily need to write in a very introspective way.”
