A Reason to Swim is the third EP of singer/songwriter Joe Brooks and is his first independent release following his departure from Lava Records/Universal Republic Records. It was released through Fantastic Music LLC in the US on September 6, 2011.
A Reason to Swim is the fourth overall release of artist Joe Brooks and his third EP. Following being dropped from Lava Records/Universal Republic Records in early 2011 Brooks quickly began putting together music for an EP release. To fund the album independently Brooks started a threshold pledge system through the site PledgeMusic. Designated the "Fans Only EP", people who pledged money were able to receive signed memorabilia, access to Joe Brooks concerts or even a prom date with Brooks. Funding for the album exceeded its goal, with additional money going toward the filming of the music video "Holes Inside." "Holes Inside" was released on YouTube a day after the album, on September 7.
The EP was licensed and released by Sony in Korea and Malaysia. As part of the promotion, Brooks attended a media tour in Korea to support A Reason to Swim, appearing on national television and Korean publications of Nylon and Teen Vogue. The song "Someday (OK)" was also featured on Superstar K3.
