The Swearengens / Bio

Songs about drinking whiskey. Songs about love and heartache. Songs about murdering your ex-lover and taking her Xanax and painkillers to deal with the aftermath. This is a warped attempt at reviving the glory days alt-country of Whiskeytown, Dwight Yoakam, Uncle Tupelo, early Wilco and Son Volt, and pre-rehab Steve Earle. The Swearengens are an unruly beam of pure energy fueled by memorable songs filled with honesty and irreverence. With a dedicated following of hard-drinking two-steppers behind them, if you haven’t had a great time at a Swearengens show, well, then you haven’t been out to one yet.

“This Seattle country troupe drops their debut release with a lot of honky-tonkin’ twang and whiskey-swilling grit…keeps Seattle’s alt-country scene alive and drinking heavily.” - Seattle Weekly’s Reverb

“This saloon-stomping Seattle sextet…is quintessential alt-country, with all the cognitive dissonance of an upbeat dance tune set to paeans of alcoholism, prescription drugs, domestic homicide and the devil.” - City Arts Magazine

“Rich and energetic…a formidable wall of whiskey-infused alt-country music.” - Randomville
