Los Angeles’ The Wiltern on February 1
Jenny Lewis has confirmed her highly anticipated return with her fourth solo album, On The Line, out spring 2019 on Warner Bros. Records. Since releasing 2014’s critically acclaimedThe Voyager— which NPR likened to “California sunshine glinting off the Pacific Ocean, steeped in the West Coast pop sounds of the 1970s”— Jenny Lewis has been plotting her highly anticipated return. Between headlining dates around the globe and stealing the show at Newport Folk Festival 2018, not to mention captivating audiences as special guest of Beck at Madison Square Garden, Jenny has been fastidious in recording brand new material. Featuring a who’s who of supporting players including Beck, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner, Ringo Starr and Ryan Adams among others and recorded at the distinguished Capitol Studios, On The Line will no doubt be a triumphant and irresistible highlight of 2019.
Andrew Bird is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, whistler, and songwriter who picked up his first violin at the age of four and spent his formative years soaking up classical repertoire completely by ear. He has released 13 albums to date and performed extensively worldwide.
Two-time Emmy Award winner Sarah Silverman is one of the most versatile talents in entertainment. Silverman recently reprised her role of “Vanellope” in Golden Globe nominated Wreck it Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet and continues to lend her voice to the Emmy Award-winning Fox animated series Bob’s Burgers and is a part of Jash. Her additional film credits include Battle of the Sexes, I Smile Back, The Book of Henry, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, Ashby, A Million Ways to Die in the West, Take This Waltz, Gravy, Peep World, I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With, The School of Rock, There’s Something About Mary, The Way of The Gun and Wreck It Ralph.
On stage, Silverman continues to cement her status as a force in stand-up comedy. In May 2017, she released her latest standup special A Speck of Dust on Netflix, which culminated in two Emmy Award nominations and a Grammy Award nomination. In September 2014, Silverman released the special as an audio album through Sub Pop Records, which went on to receive a 2015 Grammy Awards nomination for “Best Comedy Album.” In 2010, she released her first book, a memoir called The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee. The book went on to become a New York Times Bestseller.
