KELLEY SWINDALL is the oldest of 7 children, born and raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia. As the daughter of a Conservative Evangelical US Congressman,in a staunchly fundamentalist community, the only music Swindall was permitted to listen to while growing up were of the Golden Oldies, Classic Country, and Contemporary Christian variety. It was the former two that excited her soul, w/ their story driven narratives,heart on their sleeve lyrics, and timeless melodies, which weaved themselves into her musical fabric.
At 21 she made her way to New York City, to study theater, but after a break up with a musician, turned to writing songs in an attempt to win him back. By the time she had done so, she determined that she was better off without him, having found the new love of her life, in her own music.
With a rafter reaching voice, evocative of Dolly Parton + Patsy Cline, and original songs in the story-telling tradition of Hank WIlliams, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan, Swindall has built a healthy following in New York City’s East Village music scene, as well as across the US, where she tours solo, equally at home in a biker bar or under the proscenium, taking the stage with just her moxie and guitar.
