Much like families, bands go through it all together.As a unit, they face lifes ups, downs, highs, lows, trials, tribulaPons, tragedies, triumphs, and everythingin between. They change, learn, and grow as one. However, Los Angeles band JOHNNYSWIM doesnt justseem like a family; it is a family. At the core, husband-and-wifeAbner Ramirez and Amanda Sudanotranslate the memories, moments, and milestones on their journey into spirited, slick, and soulfulanthems steeped in singer-songwriter tradiPon, yet amplified by alternaPve experimentaPon, rockenergy, and pop ambiPon.The music moves as the couples life does, scrapbooking unforgeXable experiences in melody like aneternal keepsake of their relaPonship.The music is the backdrop on which our life gets painted, affirms Abner. Were not just wriPngpartners; were partners. Theres no balance between work and romance. Its all a gumbo. Our firstexcuse to date and hang out was wriPng together. We say things beXer in song than we discuss them inperson. Weve seen terrible things, brilliant things, and beauPful things as a couple. The albums andperformances become the canvas that loss, gain, romance, and love are subconsciously paintedunbeknownst to us, honestly.I add inPmacy, and he adds fire, exclaims Amanda. Its important to have both. Thats really thebalance of what JOHNNYSWIM is.Like any lasPng relaPonship (whether musical or roman1c), that balance didnt crystallize overnighteither...As the story goes, Abner felt love-at-first sight upon seeing Amanda. Immediately, he thought, Thatsthe girl Im going to marry. The only problem was he declared it aloud in front of his date (whopromptly became his last ex). To add insult to injury, Amanda shrugged him off with an eye-roll as well.Four years passed unPl their paths crossed again at a 2005 Nashville wriPng session. The relaPonshipexperienced its makeups and breakups before they married in 2009a year removed from the arrival oftheir self-Ptled debut EP, JOHNNYSWIM.Building a fanbase through constant touring, 2013s Heart Beats EP spawned Dont Let It Get YouDown, which clocked 17 million-plus SpoPfy streams. Their first full-length, Diamonds, arrived in 2014as its single Home famously became the theme to HGTV hit Fixer Upper.
