Honesty, passion, and a sense of purpose flow through every song on Georgica Pond, JOHNNYSWIM's sophomore effort. Hailed by The New York Times as "a pairing of equals, a key finding its lock," singing-songwriting duo JOHNNYSWIM have amplified the strengths of their critically acclaimed debut Diamonds (2014) with an album that reflects different seasons of life and love, filtered through their rousing fusion of folk, soul, pop, and rock. Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez’s uniqueness as storytellers who possess the "sparkle of natural-born stage performers" (NPR) has cultivated a devoted audience who pack the duo's sold-out shows. It's those listeners and countless more who will see their reflection in the lyrics and melodies of Georgica Pond. Georgica Pond captures the spirit of musical adventure that's long shaped JOHNNYSWIM's approach to writing and recording. "Any fear we had on album one has completely evaporated," Abner says. "We know the people that come to JOHNNYSWIM shows. We know it matters to them what we have to say. We realize that, much like ourselves, our fans appreciate honesty. We wanted that to be the cornerstone of this album." The reflection of Georgica Pond illuminates "love, legacy, the past and the future all put into this bittersweet mixture that makes you fully appreciate the present," says Amanda. Like love itself, the universality of that mixture is beyond measure.
