Outlaw Artist Kelley Swindall Is A Worthy Heir To Country Music’s Tradition Of Female Grit
By Emily Jashinsky
A fan of musical 'irreverence,' Kelley Swindall told me she enjoys challenging 'antiquated structures,' in the spirit of female artists like Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton. There’s a lot to like about Kelley Swindall, the sultry up-and-comer in Outlaw Country whose sound breezily captures the spirit of an earlier era with confidence and style and none of the usual pretentiousness. Most professional musicians grow up dreaming of careers in the industry, but Swindall decided to pursue music after breaking up with a musician.
