Martin Swinger’s songs tell stories which resonate with his audience through imaginative expression and personal connection, which makes him a sought-after performer at coffeehouses, festivals, listening rooms and schools.
A life-long performer with National awards for songwriting, Martin is recognized by his peers as an outstanding musician and songwriter. Martin Swinger sings Songs worth listening to.
"Martin Swinger is one of those rare singer-songwriters who excels at everything: singing, songwriting, guitar-playing, and being so present with his humor, tenderness, and wild mind that his performances are also deep conversations, soul to soul and heart to heart, about the quirks, surprises, and love that brings us most alive. His songs, ranging from the little plastic parts that hold the world together, to what enlightenment comes from Buddha and Betty Boop falling in love, are whimsically and wisely original and enduring." - Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Kansas Poet Laureate Emeritus Daymark
