Johnnyswim is Coming Back!

October 25, 2017

written by Naomi Bower

They’re back! Johnnyswim, the LA-based husband-and-wife singer/songwriter duo, is ready to bring another great show to the Liberty student body.

Music has played an obvious role in the lives of both Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez, as their website explains: “The pair met in Nashville in 2005, instituting a songwriting partnership not long afterward. They clicked together musically and personally, beginning a romantic relationship along with their creative connection.”

Johnnyswim’s style reflects an eclectic range of influences while maintaining distinct Nashville roots. Their most recent album, Georgica Pond, was honest and raw as they opened up about the loss and heartache they were experiencing in this season. This authenticity struck a chord with many of their listeners, putting their album at #34 on the Billboard charts. Johnnyswim’s most recent tour kicked off in August and their fans seem to be as in love with their music as they are with each other.

One of my personal favorite songs from this album was their song “Drunks”. “Drunks” was inspired by the experiences that the duo shared in pubs among strangers in attempts to recreate that same unity among the audience. This song aims to diminish any segregation between the people even if just for a moment. Regardless of our differences, this song seems to exude the message that we all serve someone far greater than these issues.

Last semester, Johnnyswim stunned the student body when they made a pit stop for Convocation during their Let It Matter tour. We’re excited to welcome them back to campus for a show on October 30th – find tickets here!
