"Jayne Kelli finds her way to the heavenly highs of Art Garfunkel with a soaring and effortless soprano delivery, while AJ Swearingen displays his dexterity with Simon's well-ensconced
guitar riffs." -The Capital Gazzette
"Two voices in perfect harmony balanced against one acoustic guitar delivers a true tribute to the sound of the 1960's Greenwich Village, NY coffeehouse performances"
"Swearingen is a fine acoustic guitarist. He articulated beautifully the haunting, singsong accompaniment to “Scarborough Fair.”
- The Buffalo News, 2015 (Swearingen's performance with the BPO)
"I mean, it’s that harmony. When you hear a duo that is really singing together–and by that I mean listening as much as anything else–it’s a special and unique sound."
- Red Line Roots, 2019
*Career highlights include Swearingen & Kelli performing "The Boxer" and other '70s hits with The Dayton Philharmonic, The Edmonton Symphony and THIS summer with the Cleveland Orchestra!

Swearingen & Kelli recreate the music, memories and magic of the most famous
folk-rock duo of our time, Simon & Garfunkel.
AJ Swearingen has been performing this music for twenty years with mastery of Paul Simon's intricate guitar playing. His deep baritone blends perfectly with Kelli's angelic vocals delivering a true tribute to the sound of the 1960's Greenwich Village, NY coffeehouse performances.
The duo is on a mission to share this iconic music to new audiences around the country.
Both artists were heavily inspired by the great 70s singer-songwriters, but their unique ability to channel the sounds of Simon & Garfunkel is immediately apparent when you hear them perform these classics songs live.
