“Swift’s singer-songwriter craft takes on a deeper hue with the elliptical song cycle “The Legend Of Roy Black”. The June release is heavy on his well-known gifts – compelling, believable storytelling, enchanting baritone vocals, and Swift’s own tasty acoustic and resonator guitar work. He is backed by an all-star cast of fellow Hot Toddy alum Tom Easley (upright bass), J.P. Cormier (mandolin, violin, banjo), and Asa Brosius (pedal steel, dobro). On the one hand utterly contemporary and on the other hand timeless, this album of 7 vignettes, 2 instrumentals and one cover is a world-class gem.” – Wilfred Langmaid, The Daily Gleaner

“On June 23 I caught an excellent show at Kiju’s Restaurant as Thom Swift was in town promoting his new CD, “The Legend Of Roy Black.” The gravelly voiced singer with the calm and gentle stage presence delighted the audience with his new work and songs from his previous CDs as well as showcasing his superb guitar skills.”
