JOHNNYSWIM confirm fall tour + “Summertime Romance” premieres via NPR Music

Beloved singing-songwriting duo JOHNNYSWIM confirm nationwide tour dates this fall in support of their forthcoming album, Georgica Pond. The tour kicks off on October 14 in Seattle and sees the band making stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Nashville, Chicago, Washington D.C., New York City and many more. See below for details.

Georgica Pond is set for release September 30 on Big Picnic Records. “Summertime Romance, the first track to be revealed, is premiering today via NPR Music who hails it as “a beautiful, pulsing reflection on youth and courtship that perfectly captures the doe-eyed innocence and heady rush of new-found love.” Listen here: http://n.pr/2abNtXb.

The new album was produced by JOHNNYSWIM’s Abner Ramirez and recorded at the couple’s home studio in Los Angeles, with bass and drum parts added at the Castle in Nashville. JOHNNYSWIM teamed up with a few different songwriters and collaborators including longtime collaborator Britten Newbill, violinist/composer Anton Patzner, Nashville-based songwriters Natalie Hemby and Chris DeStefano, as well as country music icon Vince Gill, to create a listening experience that spans a range of tones and emotions.

Of their process, Ramirez explains, “Any fear we had on album one has completely evaporated. We know the people that come to JOHNNYSWIM shows. We know it matters to them what we have to say. We realize that, much like ourselves, our fans appreciate honesty. We wanted that to be the cornerstone of this album.” Amanda Sudano Ramirez further highlights the themes on the album: “love, legacy, the past and the future all put into this bittersweet mixture that makes you fully appreciate the present.”
