Johnnyswim is last of the four Riverfront Rendezvous feature performances for the Levitt AMP Stevens Point Music Series.
About the headliners: Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez make up JOHNNYSWIM. The pair met in Nashville in 2005, instituting a songwriting partnership not long afterward. They clicked together musically and personally, beginning a romantic relationship along with their creative connection. Their music spans anthemic folk pop, sparse acoustic numbers and moody ballads.
The couple married in 2009 and relocated to Los Angeles. In addition to their 2014 debut full- length, they’ve released three EPs, as well as a Christmas EP and a live album. They’ve performed on various television shows including VH1's “You Oughta Know Concert,” “The Tonight Show starring Jay Leno,” “Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Today Show,” “Live with Kelly & Michael,” and provided the theme song on HGTV’s “Fixer Upper.” The duo has also toured extensively including major U.S. festival appearances.
