Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice aka Jenny and Johnny are one of my favorite musicals couples because they are both ultra-talented and compliment each other so well.
We recently recorded a live session with Jenny around her latest solo album “The Voyager” (airing on Monday, 11/3) and seeing Johnathan behind the scenes, clearly providing off stage support, made me want to revisit their session in …

KCRW’s Apogee Sessions feat Jenny Lewis by Jeremiah Garcia

While Jenny Lewis’ new album “The Voyager” was born out of many tales of woe (gnarly bouts of insomnia, the death of her father, and the end of her band Rilo Kiley), she has never looked more comfortable or happier on stage than how she did at Apogee Studio for a live KCRW session taped last night.
In her slick black pantsuit, rockin’ a rainbow …

Leon Bridges – “Coming Home”
On my first listen to this track, I had to go back and check whether it was brand new or very old.

GA and Jason

These days especially, people seem to have a wide range of feelings about Kanye West, based on a life that bounces  from musical genius to celeb tabloid magnet and everything in between.
With his most recently album “Yeezus” he took his musical experimentation to the next level but, before that, there was “808s & Heartbreak”. His 4th studio album was conceived in the wake of …
