Snippet from Barrington Coffee House... my first show.

I just finished writing this, my first song in 6 years, inspired by the recent passing of a friend and young mother of three.

Having Been by Jeff Swain, released 03 May 2017 Seeing you so clearly Feeling you still here We can’t believe you’re gone Reaching back for you but dragged along It seems the world is moving on How can any future come without you there And all that should have been May this bitter sorrow Time refine...

Besides my Barrington Coffee House show with Carsie Blanton on October 29th in South Jersey, for those of you in Central Jersey, I'll be the featured artist the following Thursday, November 3rd, at Princeton's Updike Farmstead. It's actually an open mic run by The Princeton Historical Society with a featured performer thrown in for an extended set, so performers are welcome. Here's their link for those interested.…/updike-farmstead.cfm

The Historical Society of Princeton purchased the six-acre Updike Farmstead from the estate of Stanley Updike in 2004. The Farmstead consists of a late 18th/early 19th century farmhouse, a large barn built in 1892, wagon shed, corn crib, three-bay garage, garden sheds and chicken coops. After the pu...

I don't think I've been mentioned in a newspaper since high school. Cool, but now I can't suck like I had planned!

The BCH, known for presenting up and coming artists, sets the stage for award winning singer/songwriter Loretta Hagen Friday Jan. 28 at 8pm sharing the night with local favorite Jeff Swain.

I was pleasantly surprised to have an offer waiting for another gig when I came home from my first show the other night. 8th Street Music in Pennsauken, NJ is having a big tent sale this weekend with lots of musical entertainment throughout. I'm a small part of that entertainment. My set is Sunday from 1-2pm. Come on by if you're free!

The Barrington Coffee House.. my first show.

My first solo show will be at The Barrington Coffee House opening for the British singer/songwriter Rupert Wates October 2nd. $10 cover. Great food. Great coffee. I hope you can make it. Also, I just put up a couple of new songs at along with a recording of me meeting my new guitar. Not to worry, I'll be shopping for straightjackets soon.

First gig down. Hopefully many more to come. Went well, I think. A cozy little house concert. A great night of original songs. I co-headlined along with 3 very talented musicians and songwriters --- John DeLise and the duo The Lyra Project. The bill is below.
This was such a small venue that I didn't want to announce it, but I will announce any future shows through this FB page. I do have a gig set up for October 2nd at the Barrington Coffee House, but maybe I'll book some others before then. We'll see.

Found out just before the deadline about a Philadelphia area singer/songwriter "love song" contest, so I just replaced the Nashville vocalist on my song, Surrender, with my own and remixed it. It's up on my MySpace Music page if you wanna give it a listen.

Hi, everyone! I just added a country song, "Surrender", that I wrote a little while back that was recorded by Nashville demo musicians. The voice ain't mine, but at that point I was shopping songs as a songwriter and wasn't considering performing as an artist. It won't quite fit on my upcoming album, but it's one I'm glad to have written. I hope you like it! Peace! Jeff
