Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnnie Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.
John's quirky-cool jazz, blues, and pop compositions have been featured on 6 solo albums; he's had 40 different songs licensed for commercial use. A veteran of over 700 live performances, his warm style and personality are a fine fit for almost any kind of venue.
