Singer-songwriters JOHNNYSWIM will perform at the Charleston Music Hall PROVIDED

JOHNNYSWIM will perform at the Charleston Music Hall Friday, May 16. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance or $18.50 the day of the show.

Three years in 12 songs. That's what JOHNNYSWIM delivers on “Diamonds,” the full-length debut by singer-songwriters Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez. Imbued with the duo's undeniable chemistry, “Diamonds” is a soulful and powerful musical statement that draws from wells of love, loss, hope and joy. The album follows JOHNNYSWIM's critically acclaimed EP “Heart Beats,” which catapulted this husband and wife to national recognition through VH1's “You Oughta Know” campaign and appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.”

Honesty has always been a hallmark of JOHNNYSWIM's songs and each note on “Diamonds” is chiseled by a remarkable emotional intimacy. Like the swim to freedom that inspires the duo's name, they've navigated a course of many emotions and experiences over the past few years. “Abner lost his father. I lost my mom,” says Amanda, referring to her late mother Donna Summer. “I think you go through a season of heartache, and even once you get past the difficult part, you're still processing loss. On this record, the songs came from how relationships change when everybody's dealing with creating a new normal.” Penned with Josiah Bell, “Live While We're Young” is one of the centerpieces of the album and exemplifies the idea of living a passionate and purposeful life, even while reconciling loss and life-changing events.
