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. When she was old enough to drive herself, she added Ryan Adams, Tom Petty, and Johnny Cash to the mix. After highschool she left to study acting at The American Academy of Dramatic arts in New York City, where she currently resides.
Drawing from her southern background, her style is a unique blend of bluesy folk coupled with a witty, gritty, old school country sensibility, with a twinge of the outlaw tradition. Rooted in story songs and talking blues, her debut album "kelley swindall (pronounced ke le swine 'dl)" was released in July of 2014.
She performs regularly throughout NYC as well as on the road and in her native South, and is a member of the NYC based theater company The Amoralists.
