Jenny Lewis

Jenny Lewis’s The Voyager Was a Difficult Sleepless Journey

Jenny Lewis's new album The Voyager comes out today and we are lucky to have her as our guest playing live with her band. From child actor to co-head of Rilo Kiley and thru some spectacular solo albums (Rabbit Fur Coat and Acid Tongue) plus working with Ben Gibbard in The Postal Service, we already know Jenny is a trouper. This weekend her story was chronicled in a profile in The New York Times Magazine. As we will hear today this album took her a while, as insomnia and the death of her father threw her. She started working with Beck on the song “Just One Of The Guys,” but it was Ryan Adams who brought forth the performances on The Voyager as producer. Make sure to listen to the special web only song from our session.
