Swearingen and Kelli
March 27 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM$25.00 in Advance │ $30 at the door
AJ Swearingen and Jayne Kelli are a husband and wife, singer-songwriter duo based out of Nashville. You may have caught one of their sold-out Simon and Garfunkel tribute shows at the Barns of Rose Hill, but this concert will feature the pair’s original music from their album Cold Hearted Truth, which bridges the gap between modern-day Americana and the classic sounds of 1970s singer/songwriters. It’s the pair’s most collaborative album to date, merging the talents of two artists — both of whom enjoyed acclaimed solo careers before partnering up for Swearingen & Kelli’s 2013 debut — into a singular sound filled with close harmonies, swooning pedal steel, gospel piano, analog production, and storytelling both autobiographical and character-driven.
AJ and Jayne’s histories became entwined after a night of impromptu duets at the Hideaway, a cozy listening room in St. Petersburg, Florida. Their voices meshed effortlessly that evening, leading to more collaborations between the two musicians. AJ began playing lap steel in Jayne’s band, while Jayne started singing harmonies on AJ’s records. Before long, a romance had blossomed alongside the pair’s ongoing collaboration, and it simply made sense to combine their individual efforts into a proper duo.
“We melded together naturally,” Jayne remembers. “We weren’t necessarily looking to form a duo, but we shared a bond because we were both still playing the bars in town, and we knew we wanted something bigger. We began playing together, and everything grew from there.”
