Swallowtail was created in the Methow Valley of Washington State after a season of gigging between Matt Armbrust and Emele Clothier. Both seasoned musicians, Armbrust is an international award winning composer, multi-instrumentalist and professional violinist while Clothier is an award winning songwriter with a fifty year career gaining her greatest prominence touring with the Horse Crazy Cowgirl Band for over a decade. As collaborators, Armbrust and Clothier just really enjoy working with each other.
