Emma Swift is an Australian-born musician. A gifted singer inspired by Joni Mitchell, Marianne Faithfull, Linda Ronstadt and Sandy Denny, Emma’s sound is a blend of classic folk, Americana and indie rock.

In August 2020 she released “Blonde On The Tracks” an inspired reimagining of some of her favourite Bob Dylan tunes on Tiny Ghost Records. Produced by Pat Sansone (WILCO), the album received Best of 2020 accolades from Rolling Stone, Nashville Scene, No Depression, The Guardian and more. The album charted in the Australian Top 10, as well as in the UK, US and European Americana Charts. 

In 2021, Rolling Stone Magazine named her version of Bob Dylan’s “Queen Jane Approximately” as #17 in their list of the 80 Best Dylan covers of all-time.

“Her high, clear voice highlights each syllable, letting you hear the words form, one seemingly following inevitably from the other, until they feel handed down, fragments of old songs now speaking to each other.” – Greil Marcus, LA REVIEW OF BOOKS

“Swift navigates Sansone’s majestic folk-rock arrangements like the able captain of a frigate sailing over shimmering seas.” – Bud Scoppa, UNCUT MAGAZINE

“Nobody has ever sung Dylan quite like this Nashville-based Australian singer-songwriter, nor with such a rare interpretive gift…comparable to Emmylou Harris’s Wrecking Ball in its intent, execution and intimacy.” – Andrew Stafford, THE GUARDIAN
