Jenny Lewis had her first taste of stardom when she was a child, appearing in a series of television shows and films. As she came of age, she grew disenchanted with acting and turned to music, forming the indie rock band Rilo Kiley with Blake Sennett in 1998. Her work with Rilo Kiley drew upon the seediness of her native San Fernando Valley and nearby Hollywood, but she began to expand her horizons when she released a country-tinged solo debut called Rabbit Fur Coat in 2006. Rilo Kiley stuck around for another album, but Rabbit Fur Coat established Lewis as a formidable singer-songwriter in her own right, and her reputation only grew after the group split, thanks to the rustic Americana of 2008’s Acid Tongue and the slick pop sheen of 2014’s The Voyager. Jenny’s new album, On The Line, is released in March 2019.
