Watch acclaimed husband and wife band JOHNNYSWIM perform “First Try” on “CONAN” last night:

The song is taken from the duo’s latest album, Georgica Pond, which was released last year and debuted at #13 on Billboard’s Top Current Album Chart, #35 on the Billboard Top 200, #4 on iTunes’ Top Albums and #1 on iTunes’ Singer-Songwriter charts.

To continue to celebrate the release, JOHNNYSWIM will tour Europe for the first time and continue their North American tour with dates this March. See below for details. Of their live show CBS Philadelphia hails, its “…sincere and personal and very much their own,” and the band were recently featured on the cover of Pollstar.

Georgica Pond continues to receive widespread critical acclaim:

“Their sparkly pop songs exude L.A. sleekness, but they’d easily translate to country radio with the application of a little twang…and the lyrics frequently touch on the elation, complication and lifelong work inherent in love, devotion and family.” —NPR Music

“Johnnyswim sets itself apart from predecessors by blurring the lines between life and art.” —Huffington Post

“…it’s romantic it’s swoon-worthy even…” —KQED’s The California Report

“Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez pull and push themselves with their fans into the depths of that realm, creating a critical space for honesty, loss, and love that can be experienced, heard, and understood. The duo’s sophomore release, Georgica Pond, is the pinnacle of all those discoveries: that beauty is imperfect, that pain deserves to be felt, and that there is always room for hope in the smallest of places.” —NYLON

“Whether they’re conveying the wonderful highs or the bittersweet lows of relationships, it’s enough to elicit a flood of relatability and understanding.” —All Music

“…raw, emotional love songs.” —Dujour

Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez make up JOHNNYSWIM. The pair met in Nashville in 2005, instituting a songwriting partnership not long afterward. They clicked together musically and personally, beginning a romantic relationship along with their creative connection. The couple married in 2009 and relocated to Los Angeles. In addition to their 2014 debut full-length Diamonds, which sold over 50,000 copies and has almost 30 million streams, they’ve released three EPs as well as a Christmas EP and a live album. They’ve performed on television shows including VH1’s “You Oughta Know Concert,” “The Tonight Show starring Jay Leno,” “Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Today,” “Live with Kelly & Michael” and their song “Home” remains the theme for HGTV’s “Fixer Upper.”
