Jenny Lewis

Rick Mason

Former Rilo Kiley singer Jenny Lewis put together her third solo album, The Voyager, amid trauma: her father's death, her band's breakup, bouts of severe insomnia. While not specifically addressing those issues, the album is a log of the journey Lewis — or her protagonist — has taken to this point in her life. The songs are bittersweet tales of regret, loss, betrayal, and bad decisions, ultimately buoyed by a sense of now being older and wiser. The music is similarly buoyant, a breezy, jaunty brand of SoCal pop-rock, with hints of Laurel Canyon and prime Fleetwood Mac. Producers Ryan Adams, Beck, and longtime partner Johnathan Rice help craft a spirit of musical and personal resiliency. Opening is the Apache Relay, a Rice-affiliated Nashville band that on its new, eponymous album continues to move into lush pop strongly influenced by blue-eyed soul while retaining remnants of its Americana roots. 18+.
