Biography

They say there are two sides to every story, but that old saying might not quite cover it if we’re talking about Jenny Lewis. With Rilo Kiley, her rock band of the past 10 years, she transformed before our eyes from a shy indie-rocker to the authoritative, take-no-prisoners singer/songwriter/frontwoman we know today. Rilo Kiley formed in 1998 and have released 4 critically lauded albums: ... Read more in Amazon's Jenny Lewis Store

Product Description

Product Description

California singer songwriter Jenny Lewis returns with The Voyager which will be released by Warner Bros. Records. This is the former Rilo Kiley frontwoman’s third solo album and first in six years, following 2006’s Rabbit Fur Coat (with The Watson Twins) and 2008’s Acid Tongue.

The Voyager is Lewis’s most deeply personal album to date, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of Rilo Kiley. The Voyager’s rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but three of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis’ longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice. The Voyager finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness.

After several years of writing new material, Lewis took 2013 off to tour with The Postal Service. Sharing the spotlight was a freeing experience, providing the realization that she needed to give up control in order to move forward. While on the road, she reached out to Ryan Adams to record at his newly built studio, Pax Am, at Sunset Sound. Her first day back from tour, she went into the studio with Adams and his partner Mike Viola, and found the creative collaboration she was missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voyager - a joy 1 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
Jenny Lewis has a rich and strong back catalogue of albums, recordings and collaborations. Perhaps surprisingly this is just her second official ‘solo’ outing having shared billing on albums with The Watson Twins and boyfriend Johnathan Rice. Much has been made of Lewis’ time to make this record, with recent interviews citing insomnia and personal issues delaying the recording process. Indeed, Lewis was at one stage in the habit of releasing one record each year back to back. The time taken over writing this album has clearly paid off and it is one of Lewis’ most coherent albums, particularly when compared to the still excellent Acid Tongue.

Lyrically, Lewis still has it. ‘Head Underwater’, perhaps one of Lewis’ finest openers, details her personal struggles and battles with insomnia, whilst ‘Late Bloomer’ (a personal favourite) sets out a story involving a trip to Paris, a girl called Nancy and much candour. ‘Love U Forever’ has a lyrical complexity that goes beyond a lovesick ballad and, as ever, Lewis combines a happy façade with darkness. This works well with the up-beat and summer feel of the album, which also sees songs such as ‘Aloha and the Three Johns’, inspired by her touring bands visit to Hawaii on the Acid Tongue tour, pickup from many of the themes on ‘I’m Having Fun Now’ and the latter half of ‘Under the Blacklight’. ‘Slippery Slopes’ even begins in a similar style to Rilo Kiley’s last album. Elsewhere, ‘She’s Not Me’ is one of the best pop songs of 2014 and sounds like an instant classic. Lead single ‘Just One of the Guys’, originally performed during the Jenny and Johnny tour of 2010/11, is infectious and cool, backed up by a humorous video worth checking out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jenny Lewis - The Voyage Continues 28 July 2014
By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Jenny Lewis has infuriated, enchanted, annoyed and charmed in equal measure over an illustrious career. The former Rilo Kiley front woman is always worth checking out. When she gets it right ("More Adventurous" and "Rabbit Fur Coat") she is the top of the premier division. In this new album "Voyager" she has enlisted Ryan Adams in most of the production duties although Beck and her love interest Jonathan Rice are also present.

The result is a bright and colourful as the rather lurid trouser suit that Lewis dons on the cover. This is a warm slice of Californian pop music typified by the bouncy "Aloha & The 3 Johns" which could soundtrack a summer vacation. Lewis voice throughout is at its expressive best although the album cannot quite work out what it wants to be. There some great songs present not least the sumptuous "Just one of the guys" where Lewis moves into confessional mode charting the steady tick of her biological clock and recognising that "I'm just another lady without a baby". The rocking power pop of "Slippery Slopes" echoes Rilo Kiley of the "Under the Backlight" era, whilst the title track is the sort of sweet anthem that the OC and other programmes of its ilk would have once drawn upon to great effect. The jingle jangle of "Late Bloomer" is also very endearing and will replay further listens.

The doubts emerge on songs like "Head Underwater" which for its pop sheen actually sounds like Haim. Others like "Love U Forever" suffer from lyrics that feel lifted from a primary school poetry competition not least "when I met you you were just a boy and you were tongue tied from wearing corduroy, when you kissed me I was so annoyed".

In my teens,my fav female singer songwriters were Carole King & Joni Mitchell.Now nearly 60yrs old,my fav female singer songwriters are Robyn & Jenny Lewis.These different generation of artists couldn't be more different,but they are just as talented.And this new album of ms Lewis is her best solo work so far.Best song:She's not me.

Just a great collection of well written and well sung guitar pop songs. What more do you want? Jenny Lewis sings about her innermost angst, relationship breakdowns etc and still has a way of making the overall feel of the collection upbeat. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album!! 15 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
I love everything about this album. Every song is a gem, and Jenny's voice is lovely!! Bought it less than a week ago, and haven't listened to anything else since. Really glad I bought it, especially as I wasn't really familiar with her previous work!!
