PONY BRADSHAW / KELLEY SWINDALL

****************************

Pony Bradshaw

Pony Bradshaw is the songwriting project of James Bradshaw. A southern Rimbaud, the nomadic Bradshaw grew up drifting due to his father¹s career in the military. He continued that drifting most of his life, but for the past decade has called North Georgia home. On his debut album, Sudden Opera, there seems to be no fear of being lush or sparse, dense or loose. Space is welcomed along with high drama. His songs are the nomads now. Inspired more by the 19th century French novelists, poets and painters than modern troubadours and pulp fiction, Bradshaw seems to be looking to make a new way for himself; a way that is not dictated by trend or time.

Kelley Swindall

Kelley Swindall was born and raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia, where she grew up listening to the music of Kris Kristofferson, Patsy Cline, and David Allen Coe on the way to church every Sunday morning, because that's what her daddy listened to. The rest of the week she listened to the Atlanta oldies station, Fox 97, because that's what her ride listened to. Jewel, Shawn Colvin, Meredith Brooks, and Lisa Loeb were her middle school jamz, and when she was old enough to drive herself, she added Ryan Adams, Tom Petty, Dylan, The Band, and Skynyrd to the mix.

She moved to NYC to study Theater in 2006, and found music along the way...

Drawing from her southern background, her style is a unique blend of soulful dark & bluesy folk coupled with a witty, gritty, old school country sensibility, inspired by the outlaw tradition, and deeply rooted in story songs and talking blues.

You can find her playing around NYC and killer spots across the Country.

“Swindall is one of the most distinctive artists in Americana...she is Southern by birth and sings with a charming natural twang but also a persistent unease... she knows her blues on the guitar too. ”

“... an engaging performer with a knack for a catchy tune and a choice turn of phrase... Her songs have a southern warmth to them, whether bluesy or more country; she’s also a casually compelling singer who can let a phrase trail off mysteriously or add just the tinge of a smoky, bluesy rasp or wail..."
