The Weekly Dose 07-28-14 (featuring Jenny Lewis)

Featured Artist Of The Week: Jenny Lewis

In her almost 30 year career, Jenny Lewis has been a child actor (cult films such as Troop Beverly Hills and TV shows like The Golden Girls), and a musician, first with the band Rilo Kiley (formed in 1998) and eventually branching out to a solo career in 2006.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.  Jenny Lewis is one of my favorite singer/songwriters.  She’s got one of the best voices out there, and this week she’s back with a brand new album called The Voyager.
