Swansea is an imaginative musical amalgamation born when Portland keyboardist/singer Rebecca Sanborn and drummer Ji Tanzer recruited Kansas City multi-instrumentalist/singer Kyleen King to expand their sound. Their first recording is Old Blood. Earlier this year, the band had a successful European tour through Germany, Netherlands, England and France. Sanborn and Tanzer are part of Portland’s Blue Cranes.
