Check out: Swear And Shake

Back in early February, I went to a G. Love & Special Sauce show at George’s here in Fayetteville. I was running late and was only able to catch the last song of the opening band, Swear And Shake. That one song alone made me regret not making it to the show in time to catch their whole set, so I looked them up. As I suspected, their music is sweet.

Swear And Shake is a New York-based indie-folk-rock band made up of singer-songwriters Kari Spieler and Adam McHeffey, bassist Shaun Savage, and drummer Tom Elefante.

Shout out to G. Love, who usually has really great new bands opening for him on the road. Last year he introduced me to The Belle Brigade, and the year before he introduced me to Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad (don’t make me try to say that name too fast cause I might end up confused, speaking Spanish).

These guys and gal are very talented and a delight to see live.  You can find their 2010 Extended Play EP and 2012 full album Maple Ridge on Spotify. Here’s their song “These White Walls” off Maple Ridge.

You will like them if you like: Tristan Prettyman, The Lumineers, and Of Monsters And Men.
