Beautiful, Like The Ocean

I listened to the intoxicating music of Jon Swift for the first time this morning. To the 11 songs on his 2003 release Coming & Going.


On CD Baby the album is decribed as, “delicately orchestrated compositions of guitar, bass, percussion, harmonica and piano stemming from bare, lyrically driven spirituals disguised as folk songs.”

Like Jack Johnson, Swift is a surfer living in Hawaii who plays acoustic guitar and writes his own material. The Google doesn’t have a lot of info on him, he’s made zero blog posts on MySpace and his site is “under construction.” So, let’s just listen to his music, shall we?
