Santa Monica, CA (February 13, 2020) – KCRW welcomes Jenny Lewis into the studio for a special Valentine’s Day guest DJ set tomorrow, Friday, February 14, at 10:00 AM, airing on the station’s flagship music program, Morning Becomes Eclectic. Lewis’ method for choosing this particular set of songs was “to find unironic, beautiful love songs – some of them heartbreaking, but all of them true.” Lewis’ guest DJ set features artists such as Neil Young, JJ Cale, Joni Mitchell, Cass McCombs, Emmylou Harris, Johnnie Frierson, and Don Williams. She also imparts some pro tips on how to keep a romance alive, and the wisdom to try and remember to love yourself. Tune in live to KCRW 89.9 at 10:00 AM, stream anytime for your loved one at kcrw.com, or check out her extended Valentine’s Day playlist on Spotify.
Jenny Lewis recently announced a nationwide tour in support of Harry Styles including three Los Angeles performances at The Forum on September 2, 3, & 6. She released her fourth and most critically acclaimed solo album to date, On The Line (Warner Records), on March 22, 2019. Recorded at the distinguished Capitol Studios, the album features a who’s who of supporting players including Beck, Don Was, Benmont Tench, Jim Keltner, Ringo Starr, Beck sidemen Jason Falkner and Smokey Hormel among others. On The Line continues to generate rave reviews, with Vulture declaring it her “best work to date,” and top spots on Best of 2019 lists including Rolling Stone, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today and AV Club. A culmination of Lewis’ prolific 20+ year career, On The Line follows her three previous solo albums—2014’s The Voyager (Warner Records), 2008’s Acid Tongue (Warner Records) and her 2006 solo debut Rabbit Fur Coat (Team Love)—as well as her universally-loved work in Rilo Kiley and side projects Nice As Fuck, Jenny & Johnny, and the Postal Service.
