On his debut LP Scattered Poems, Alex Dunn stakes his claim as the latest in a long line of hard-worn men and women making American music in this northernmost port. Written primarily in the quiet moments on a commercial fishing vessel in Alaskan waters, the record is filled with reflections on the many iterations of that primary preoccupation of the truly remote. “As cliché as it may sound, the overarching theme of this record is love” says Dunn. “Each song might be its own story, but it always comes down to love; love for my mother, for my grandmother, love for my family. Love for lovers, unrequited love, and love purely for this simple chance at existence. As my mother always said, ‘to love and be loved is all there really is’ (which is now engraved on my guitar strap.)”

The Swearengens
From epic road songs to tear-stained tales of heartache, Texas-style rockers to dark-humored murder ballads, the songwriting of frontman Fredd Luongo covers a lot of musical and emotional territory. Reminiscent of their alt-country forefathers Whiskeytown, Dwight Yoakam, and early Steve Earle, The Swearengens have held their own sharing the stage with contemporary alt-country stalwarts Sturgill Simpson, Lydia Loveless, Whitey Morgan and more, winning over appreciative new fans in the process.
