Playing second at Round 4 was Conway's Swampbird.

The band earned comparisons to the veteran Memphis bar-rockers in Lucero from judges Cheyenne Matthews and Sammy Williams. Judge Epiphany wrote that Swampbird was "perhaps my favorite songwriting and structure of a band thus far. I'm wit it..."

Clay Fitzpatrick called the band a "foot-stompin', whiskey drinkin' good time. Sounds like a great soundtrack to a deer camp weekend. They seemed to have a ton of fun, high energy."

Guest judge Stephen Compton heard "great songwriting," but "poor guitar solo."
