There are approximately 2,000 miles between Nashville and Los Angeles but both cities are home to JOHNNYSWIM.
Crafted by two music lovers (and lovers) Abner and Amanda comprise this spellbinding duo. Before finding one another, Abner attempted a solo career with a record label and Amanda had recorded demos in New York, but neither course was creatively satisfying. But after one magical Nashville encounter in 2005, JOHNNYSWIM formed. The two began writing songs that drew from and augmented each other's musical strengths.
Ironically, the first country song they ever wrote was penned in LA rather than Nashville. They self-released their debut EP 1-4 in 2008. A year later, Abner and Amanda got married and relocated to Los Angeles. Their move to the west coast spawned another EP 5-8 (2010) along with the release of their buzzed about "Bonsoir" / "Good News" single.
They began to tour the U.S and began working on their third EP Heart Beats. Largely recorded and produced at their home, exhibits the duo's ever-expanding stylistic range. With a full-length album slated for 2014, JOHNNYSWIM has many more stories to share.
