Jenny Lewis released her new album, The Voyager, in July of 2014. The Los Angeles artist’s first solo LP since 2008’s Acid Tongue, The Voyager is Lewis’s most deeply personal, and her most musically robust. Featuring production work from Ryan Adams, Beck, as well as Lewis and her longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice, The Voyager finds Lewis at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent life with honesty and incisiveness. And then there’s her voice, which was already a force to be reckoned with, but sounds even richer, more nuanced, more powerful. Lewis says The Voyager was the hardest album she has ever made, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of her band, Rilo Kiley. In the three years she worked on it, there were moments she thought she’d never finish. But, more than ever before, she knew she had to.
In 2004 while still in high school, Greta Morgan was a founding member of The Hush Sound and found herself on tour at sixteen opening for artists such as One Republic, Fall Out Boy, OK GO, and The All American Rejects.
In 2009 she formed Gold Motel and opened for Butch Walker, Hello Goodbye, and Cold War Kids. Greta now has her own solo project called Springtime Carnivore and her new album has been produced in part by Richard Swift (of The Shins) and will be released on Autumn Tone (via ANTI/Epitaph).
