Swampfish - Thinking Small

Swampfish - Thinking Small
Kim Downs and Liz Hall-Downs have been performing together for over twenty years. Swampfish is their latest musical collaboration. Featuring guitar, banjo, autoharp and tight vocal harmonies, Swampfish explores the alternative country terrain of the first half of twentieth century Americana with occasional sidetrips into 70's pop. Nine of Swampfish's original songs feature in their new CD, Homeward Dove, as well as covers by the likes of Leonard Cohen, Randy Newman and Doc Watson.

"['Homeward Dove' is] a joyful and completely satisfying listening experience of sweet sounds, lovely heart-stirring harmonies and a collection of excellent songs.... It’s old timey, jazzy, bluesy, alt-country, with some wondrous gospel overtones" - Anne Infante, The Folk Rag

"These musicians use space and pace so effectively that you are on their unrushed journey and feeling good before you even know it. ... Swampfish are excellent musicians who have perfected the art of musical story telling by keeping their formula simple; take a good song, create beautiful harmonies and add the right instrumental accompaniment." -Alison MacKenzie, Brisbane Folk History Project
