Internationally acclaimed songwriters Mandy Fer and Dave McGraw (from San Juan), now joined by long-time friend and bassist Thom Lord, are back at it with a new sound, new album and new name – Sway Wild! Their exceptional harmonies coupled with Fer’s pioneering electric guitar work have become a vehicle to carry them around the world, sharing the stage with such acts as Iron & Wine; Glen Hansard; Lake Street Dive; Gregory Alan Isakov; and many others. Winning over audiences from Alaska to Amsterdam, Sway Wild performs a heartfelt and dynamic blend of innovative folk-rock, pop and funk.
Their debut and self-titled “Sway Wild” album includes special guests Birds of Chicago; Sean Hayes; Anna Tivel; and others and was released worldwide in summer 2019.
“Grooving…wistful, driving, and a masterful combination…velvety vocals over staccato guitar and light percussion capture your attention with Sway Wild.” – Parade Magazine
