JOHNNYSWIM and Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors to Perform on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday, August 1st!

JOHNNYSWIM and Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors released their collaborative EP Goodbye Road on May 4th, 2018 and hit the road earlier this summer together on the incredibly successful The Goodbye Road Tour. Goodbye Road was written and recorded in the wake of an emotionally-charged year that included the racial assaults in Charlottesville, the heartbreaking attack upon an audience of music fans at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, and the loss of rock & roll icon Tom Petty. Rooted in a mix of acoustic guitars, classic songwriting, upright pianos, ringing reverb, and stacked harmonies, Goodbye Road, which also features Penny & Sparrow, is an album about endings and new beginnings.

The Goodbye Road Tour brought to life the EP’s messages of hope and resilience in the face of adversity and loss. All three artists have built their careers on the road, where their best qualities shine the brightest: Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors’ timeless storytelling through song, Penny & Sparrow’s rich, immersive harmonies, and JOHNNYSWIM’s rousing Americana and electrifying chemistry.
