PRESS QUOTES

"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!

BIO

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.

More on Swearingen & Kelli's songwriting and recording career:

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.
