Swoon make music that takes your heart, dances with it then puts it back beating stronger than ever. A dynamic Contemporary Rockin’ Folk duo who write and perform a range of material from danceable high energy Rockin’ Folk, to tender ballads, humorous ditties and their brand of blues based acoustic rock.
Josh plays an acoustic guitar with some effects and loops, sings backup vocals and plays the stomp box and foot tambourine. He provides the driving rhythms, wailing solos and catchy guitar accompaniment that Angela Smith (lead vocals and percussion) lays over her strong beautiful voice and master shaker playing. Influenced by their own Kindred, Love, Led Zeppelin and Jigzag, Swoon’s music is joyous, unpretentious and refreshing.
Starting up in July 2006 their magical songwriting partnership and passionate onstage delivery has seen them go from strength to strength. Playing support for Powderfinger & Silverchair on the Across the Great Divide Tour, Glenn Shorrock (LRB) and Deborah Conway, to name a few. Swoon released their in 2009 debut album ‘Kindred’ which is receiving airplay on Triple J and many community stations across oz.
Swoon is a powerhouse when it comes to a duo act.
