Tim Scott Swears

Hi, I was looking for the song swear (that I love you), by Tim Scott. I think this is the artist? If you know anything about this song or artist can you reply.


"Swear" is a classic song by former Rockats guitarist Tim Scott off of his 1983 solo album Swear (more like an EP since it only has 5 tracks on it) released via Sire Records. The album does credit the Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin with some vocals. The title track did gain cult status and eventually was released on the Sire compilation Just Say Yesterday. Although the entire album has been critically panned, fans have made the Swear a new wave classic evidenced by the song getting ranked #22 on KROQ's Top 106.7 Countdown of 1983.

Tim Scott McConnell has since continued recording albums with the Havalinas, the MoMac Trio and as a solo artist. He is currently working on the follow-up to his 2005 album 13 Songs which will be titled Cult Of One.

Hope this helps.
