The Chimney Swallows

The Chimney Swallows are songwriters
Raghu Lokanathan and Corwin Fox.Their collaboration began with a series of gigs on
the library picket lines in 2007. Over the half dozen tours together in the
years that followed, they came to feel that something had taken shape worth
giving a name to- The Chimney Swallows. They aim to set songs free to be all
they can be, from art to protest to mischief to prayer.
