Swearingen and Kelli
After a successful release of The Marrying Kind last summer, Americana duo Swearingen and Kelli have been crisscrossing the country coast-to-coast on repeated tour runs and finally made that move to become permanent residents of Nashville, TN. Mother Church Pew describes the singer-songwriting duo as the “delicious blend of Swearingen’s smooth baritone and Kelli’s smoky vocals…inspired by great songwriters of the ’60s and ’70s”. Their sophomore album is replete with full throttle emotion and steeped in the sounds of Americana and Country-Folk–their music is layered with lap-steel and dobro inspired by David Lindley and Jerry Douglas. After premiering their moody Appalachian track “Annalise” on Gretsch Guitars and The Daily Country, the pair also got to perform their title track ballad, “The Marrying Kind” with dramatic performances by The Cleveland Orchestra, The Stockton Symphony and The Buffalo Philharmonic.
