This from a "Martin Guitar" fan and player for many years. “I have used Martin Guitars for touring and recording for many years. I have to admit that the Voyage-Air has been an outstanding replacement and the carry-on design has made airline travel much less stressful“
Quote from A.J. Swearingen
AJ, Voyage-Air - on tour with Pop-Symphony Orchestras
A few years ago I started using Voyage-Air guitars on tour with Pop-Symphony Orchestras.
Our show is touring Nationally and Internationally with Pop’s conductor, Michael Krajewski.
It’s been a true honor to perform center stage with the Philly Pops, The Cleveland Orchestra, Atlanta, Houston, Toronto, Edmonton and many others. It’s also a true testament to the sound of my Voyage-Air considering the quality, price and sound of these orchestral instruments on stage.
The Voyage-Air guitar is also my main instrument for performing with my original music partner Jayne Kelli. Our songwriting duo,“Swearingen & Kelli”, is touring venues and opera houses across the US. Below includes our song “Realize”, performed with my Voyage-Air.
Swearingen & Kelli
Swearingen & Kelli's self-titled debut album is the blending of AJ Swearingen and Jayne Kelli's unique artistry. Known for their rich and silky vocals, this folk-pop duo is a powerful songwriting union. They've been performing their signature sound in theaters and opera houses across the United States with a style that echoes the great songwriter's of the past. Folk icon Tom Rush recorded one of Swearingen's tunes, "You're Not Here With Me", on his latest album. This song is also included on Swearingen & Kelli's highly anticipated debut album. Swearingen & Kelli deliver an undeniable chemistry with their unfiltered, from the heart songwriting and performing.
