Two years ago, I met two friends who make beautiful music together. Their names were Amanda and Abner but when their voices met acoustic guitar, they called themselves “Johnnyswim.” As I heard them play original songs, I was drawn into the melodies and lyrics. It was truly some of the best music I’d ever heard.
I was pumped to see them perform at the Catalyst Conference this past October. The conference theme was MAKE and Johnnyswim wrote an original song just for the event (sorry, it is not yet available). As apart of their performance, they produced a short video on how they write music. I wanted to copy it below and then encourage you to go buy their stuff on iTunes. Like, RIGHT NOW. You won’t regret it. My favorite song is “You’re Not Gonna Leave Me Here” but their new EP “Home” is a must-have.
