“Exile,” a new single from Tampa Bay expats Swearingen & Kelli finds the now Nashville-based songwriter duo recording with Grammy-winning producer Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, Blind Boys of Alabama) who’s managed to make the couple’s heartbroken, nostalgic brand of Americana feel even warmer than it did before. This homecoming show comes less than a week before a new album, Cold-Hearted Truth, drops on September 20.
Swearingen & Kelli. Sat. Sept. 14, 6 p.m. $15. Hideaway Café, St. Petersburg. Hideawaycafe.biz.
