JOHNNYSWIM On Tour Now, Set to Release LP 4/29
In support of their highly anticipated debut LP Diamonds, husband and wife team JOHNNYSWIM are currently touring nationwide, including a support slot with Feist. They recently made an appearance at SXSW and are looking forward to stops at Jazz Fest and Firefly Festival this summer. See below for full routing details.
Diamonds (due April 29 via Big Picnic Records) was produced by JOHNNYSWIM's Abner Ramirez and recorded in Nashville, where the couple originally met and began writing together. Of the new music Abner notes, "It's been a wild ride writing and recording this album. It's a slice of our lives from the last couple years-the love and the loss, the highs and the lows. If there's any one thing we made our aim in this album, its honesty. We're proud of what we've made for you, and hope you love it like we do." Check out the teaser trailer here: http://youtu.be/oWyEsLj0K2g. The album will be available for pre-order April 1.
The new record follows the duo's 2013 Heart Beats EP that received widespread critical acclaim-Huffington Post praised the duo's "lyrical sincerity with unadorned arrangements and vocal sophistication" while Paste Magazine called the pair "one-of-a-kind."
In addition, VH1 became very early supporters upon first hearing the music and were quick to select JOHNNYSWIM as their first-ever "You Oughta Know +" artist, hailing the twosome as "...tantalizing." The duo received long-term video support for their song "Heart Beats" and participated in VH1's Creative Music Integration initiative, where their music is placed into a selection of VH1 programs. JOHNNYSWIM also performed as part of "VH1's You Oughta Know In Concert," "The O Music Awards" and the "Do Something Awards."
