Swearingen & Kelli
You may know A.J. Swearingen as half of the Simon & Garfunkel tribute duo that's done several great shows at The Ark but he's also been writing, performing, and producing his own style of acoustic music for the last 20 years. His voice is rich and uniquely soulful and his contemporary songwriting clearly pays homage to the standout iconic folk-rock-pop artists of the past. A.J has also shared the stage with numerous recording artists including Livingston Taylor, Kenny Rogers, Jonathan Edwards, John Gorka, Dave Mason, and Tom Rush. Michigan-born Jayne Kelli is an old soul in her 20s who writes eloquently on romantic strife, feeling out of place, and hitting highs from rock bottom. Jayne has toured Italy, England, and Switzerland and was selected as one of the 2011 favorites on the WMNF radio Florida Folk Show. Together Swearingen & Kelli are a fresh duo on the music scene, known for rich and silky vocals. They cross genres from acoustic folk to edgier and darker indie pop, and they're not quite like any other duo out there!
