‘I’m a super fan too’: Emma Swift’s promise to Bob Dylan diehards
Emma Swift has told Deborah Knight she was forced to postpone her tour after her band became stuck in Melbourne.
“You’re one of the few people who’ve seen it live, Deb!
“The only thing that sort of gets anyone through it is we’re all going through this together, you know.”

Nashville-based Australian singer Emma Swift is grateful to have been largely embraced by fans of legendary musician Bob Dylan.
Last year she released her debut cover album Blonde on the Tracks, which she’s now taking on tour.
“I love the sounds of the albums from the 60s and the 70s, and in many ways the Bob Dylan tribute … is a tribute to that classic era of recording.”
Live in the studio with Deborah Knight, Emma gave fans a sample with her rendition of Going, Going, Gone.

Emma was drawn to Dylan’s “brilliant” songwriting, “incredible songs and fabulous melodies”, she told Deborah.
“I’m a super fan too.
“I think being a woman, it’s nice to give a kind of feminine touch and a bit of tenderness to songs that sometimes have a little bit more bite.”
