Doug Hammer’s 16th, 17th and 18th releases are a cover song project like no other.

Swim to America encompasses 3 albums devoted to the music of Swiss Rocker and Pop Chanteur, Stephan Eicher, re-imagined for solo piano.
Volumes 1, 2 and 3 are all combined on this 39 track double CD.

Born from the pandemic, the project took 3 years to conceive and create. Volumes 1 and 2 were released in 2023 and Volume 3 was released in 2024. Even though Doug did not compose these songs, they are filled with his trademark, emotive style.

“What is Doug Hammer's secret, how does he manage to bring my songs to life in a soothing piano version thanks to his 10 luminous fingers and in the smallest details?
I can't explain it, but that's what is beautiful and infinite about music, it doesn't need to be answered, because each question takes us deeper into his music and makes us better people for a little while.”
- Stephan Eicher

“Time, two continents separated by a big ocean, a pandemic and the perfect alignment of circumstances organically grew a three year project which became Swim to America. I arranged my favorite songs of Stephan Eicher, breathing his voice through my fingers and making them my own.”
- Doug Hammer
