Much like families, bands go through it all together.
As a unit, they face life’s ups, downs, highs, lows, trials, tribulaPons, tragedies, triumphs, and everything in between. They change, learn, and grow as one. However, Los Angeles band JOHNNYSWIM doesn’t just seem like a family; it is a family. At the core, husband-and-wife—Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano— translate the memories, moments, and milestones on their journey into spirited, slick, and soulful anthems steeped in singer-songwriter tradiPon, yet amplified by alternaPve experimentaPon, rock energy, and pop ambiPon.
The music moves as the couple’s life does, scrapbooking unforgeXable experiences in melody like an eternal keepsake of their relaPonship. “The music is the backdrop on which our life gets painted,” affirms Abner. “We’re not just wriPng partners; we’re partners. There’s no balance between work and romance. It’s all a gumbo. Our first excuse to date and hang out was wriPng together. We say things beXer in song than we discuss them in person. We’ve seen terrible things, brilliant things, and beauPful things as a couple. The albums and performances become the canvas that loss, gain, romance, and love are subconsciously painted—unbeknownst to us, honestly.”
