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

This saloon-stomping Seattle sextetis 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

From epic road songs to tear-stained tales of heartache, Texas-style rockers to dark-humored murder ballads, from rowdy dive bars to the Gorge Amphitheatre, The Swearengens cover a lot of musical and emotional territory. This six-piece reminiscent of their alt-country forefathers Whiskeytown, The Jayhawks, Dwight Yoakam, Uncle Tupelo, and Steve Earle, inject just enough rock to keep things dangerous. This aint new country background music for cubicles and wine tastings, these are memorable songs filled with honesty and passion. Their debut release Devil Gets Her Way was named one of Seattles Top Country Albums of 2012 by the Seattle Weekly. Combined with their raucous live performances and a dedicated following of hard-drinking two-steppers behind them, if you havent had a great time at a Swearengens show, then you havent been out to one yet.
