In addition to their successful careers as established songwriters with multiple albums, the duo is also on a mission to share this iconic music with audiences around the country.  Both artists were heavily inspired by the great 70s singer-songwriters and their ability to channel the sounds of that era 

are immediately apparent at when you hear them perform live.

The duo's brand new album, Cold-Hearted Truth, bridges the gap between folk singers and
country rebels. Recorded in a series of live takes with Grammy Award-winning producer Mitch
Dane (Jars of Clay, JJ Heller, The Blind Boys of Alabama), this third LP has been featured on
Americana Highways, Cowboys and Indians, and Red Line Roots.

Swearingen & Kelli have shared the stage with artists including David Bromberg, Crystal Gayle
and Kenny Rogers. Swearingen's song "You're Not Here With Me" was recorded by folk icon
Tom Rush featuring Nanci Griffith on his album, What I Know.
