Wes Swing is a singer, cellist, multi-instrumentalist and composer from Virginia. Swing’s style of composition draws on classical, electronic and alternative rock influences to create a rich and lilting soundscape of beautifully swelling dream-pop. Swing's cello-looping is accompanied by Yessirov, the electronic sound-design project of Jeff Gregerson, who lends synths, beats and processing to the textured layers of Swing's cello and voice. Together Wes Swing with Yessirov create deeply enveloping string sections to which Swing demonstrates his vocal prowess with delicate intonation, delivering lyrics imbued with poetry.
Juliana Daugherty wields her songcraft like a sword, not a diary to be buried in a drawer. Daugherty grew up playing multiple instruments, even attending
a conservatory before stepping away from classical music entirely. She went on to acquire an MFA in poetry-- a fact not lost on her debut full-length
