Profile
4S'D grew out of plans for a new Muffins album in 2008. For various reasons, including geographic separation, that effort changed into a collaboration featuring Billy Swann, Paul Sears, Mark Stanley, and Tom Scott, mostly featuring each musician recording parts in his own home studio. The project's fruition came with the release of Man or Muffin in 2017.
