Overview

Swimming to Florida is the vocal pairing of Greg Thompson and Lesley Braithwaite. Seasoned performers in their own right, they've joined forces to deliver a soulful mash-up of audience faves and indie gems, arranged with a flair for the original.

Braithwaite's primary performance experience is through the medium of dance. Whilst in San Francisco exploring the Tango scene, she landed an unexpected gig singing in a bar which inspired an ongoing fascination with the spellbinding potential of the chanteuse.

Thompson has a unique affinity for guitar, a fine voice, and a wicked sense of humour. His passion for music in tandem with a rich history of theatre, TV and film work makes for a very entertaining ride through a diverse musical repertoire.
