    Johnnyswim Johnnyswim

    Folk, Soul, Blues & Pop Music Duo

    Amanda Sudano-Ramirez and Abner make up Johnnyswim. Sudano-Ramirez was exposed to music at a young age with musicians as parents, while Abner studied music at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in his native Jacksonville, Florida. The two met in 2006 and started collaborating musically after discovering their similar influences of folk, soul and rock. Since then, they’ve relocated to Los Angeles, released two critically lauded EPs and performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, “Live from Daryl’s House” and “The Today Show.” The duo has toured extensively including stops at SXSW, Spoleto Festival and Bonnaroo, and has played in support slots for Emeli Sandé, Aloe Blacc and Feist.
