Based in Chicago, IL, Kacie Swierk is a musician, singer and songwriter. Her sophomore album, Hummingbird, is set to release in the spring of 2019, led by three singles (Seattle, June 2018, Midwest Dreams, July 2018, and Strong One, November 2018).

With an emphasis on lyricism and storytelling as its thread, Swierk’s style floats somewhere between Alternative Folk, Americana, Indie and Singer/Songwriter. Her nine-piece band is showcased on her upcoming album, and in select live performances.

“Seattle”

I’m the homeward bound and shaken down
I’m the glory that remain unfound
I’m the fighting when trying surrenders its fate
I’m the want to feel love and the hurt to escape

I’m the nomad who holds onto to memories too tight
Which is why i’m not sure that i’m doing this right
But i’m tired of flatlines and changes of plans
So i’m thanking you deeply,
No fist in my hand

So we’ll go on living
And trying to grow
I’ll keep on singing,
So you’ll always know
That you’re more than this means
Like the air to a leaf,
And you’ve changed my delight,
Infinitely

I’m the nomad-feet and hold-me-down
I’m the traveler who’s never found
I’m the one who is tired of saying goodbye
But i know that somehow it is Worth it to cry

So we’ll go on living
And trying to grow
I’ll keep on singing,
So you’ll always know
That you’re more than this means
Like the air to a leaf,
And you’ve changed my delight,
Infinitely

There’s a space in the needle
And i was scared to believe
That the walls of a building could Fall into me
And it washed through my blood
And it poured through my veins
And my skin is reminded of Seattle rain

And i’ll keep on sinking
And finding the floor
I’ll keep on praying to learn something more
Cause you’re more than this means
Like the air to a leaf,
And you’ve changed my delight,
Infinitely
