Swearingen & Kelli
Singer-songwriters Swearingen & Kelli recreate the music, memories and magic of the most famous folk-rock duo of our time, Simon and 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 against Kelli's angelic vocals, which invoke a true sound in the spirit of Art Garfunkel. 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.
Aj, born in Bethlehem PA, and Jayne, from Lapeer MI, met in 2009 at a singer-songwriters club in St. Petersburg, FL. Magnetically drawn to each other's songwriting and performing, they quickly discovered a signature vocal blend. They produced and released their debut album together in 2013. Folk icon Tom Rush recorded and included their song "You're not here with me" on his album What I Know. The pair continues to write, record and tour nationally with their repertoire of alt-country and folk style in addition to their beloved recreation of Simon & Garfunkel's music.
Together and separately, Swearingen & Kelli have shared the stage with artists including Kenny Rogers, Crystal Gayle, Livingston Taylor, Dave Mason and more.
"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, 2015
"Swearingen is a fine acoustic guitarist. He articulated beautifully the haunting, singsong accompaniment to “Scarborough Fair.”
