The comparisons end with those generalities, however, and it's far more current and accurate to compare The Swift to Ben Folds Five. Both bands hail from varying parts of North Carolina, both are fronted by talented piano-playing lead vocalists with a Southern accent, and both share an aggressive piano-based pop-rock sound laced with healthy doses of wit, musical attitude, and classic rock influences such as Joe Jackson and Todd Rundgren. Amazingly enough, just as Ben Folds was not originally a fan of Billy Joel's work despite the comparisons, it's even more stunning that lead vocalist and pianist Britt Edwards does not consider himself a fan of Ben Folds. And like most Christian artists, The Swift made the move to Nashville, though they claim a different reason than the usual desire to be near the hub of Christian music. God bless 'em, they moved to Tennessee's Tinseltown not so much to further their career, but rather, as lead singer and pianist Britt Edwards puts it, "to uphold and challenge the Christian music industry. It's great to hear that The Swift have their heads and hearts in the right place, but it's also frustrating since the majority of Christian artists essentially say the same thing at some point which leads me to wonder whom all these Christian artists that have set such a bad example are.

This was one of the first Christian bands that Edwards would be in. Christ Denomination performed original songs and covers DC Talk was a favorite. He is now doing sales. Regex, as they were known by locals, sounded like a teen garage band at the time. Jason Williams was free from any band obligations so he joined Regex as a rhythm guitarist to give them a fuller sound. Britt Edwards was asked to join the band after a party in the back yard of a mutual friend, Christ Turner. A great musical shift in the band occurred when Adam Stone was asked to join and play drums also Animal played for a short while as well.
