“We fell in love with them musically, personally, everything.” —Billboard
After apperaing on NBC’s The Today show at the College of Charleston and playing to a sold out crowd at Spoleto last year, we are thrilled to have JOHNNYSWIM wow our room.
There are approximately 2,000 miles between Nashville and Los Angeles. Both cities are home to JOHNNYSWIM. However, the duo’s music far transcends that distance. It’s easy to understand why A Prairie Home Companion declared that Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez are “21st century troubadours.” As JOHNNYSWIM, they embody the tradition of the well-traveled singer-songwriter while cultivating a modern style that’s uniquely their own.
Three years in 12 songs. That’s what JOHNNYSWIM delivers on Diamonds, the full-length debut by singer-songwriters Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez. Imbued with the duo’s “undeniable chemistry” (Billboard), Diamonds is a soulful and powerful musical statement that draws from wells of love, loss, hope, and joy. The album follows JOHNNYSWIM’s critically acclaimed EP Heart Beats (2013), which catapulted the husband and wife team to national recognition through VH1’s You Oughta Know+ campaign and appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (NBC) and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson (CBS).
