Top Five Reasons You Need to See Johnnyswim


Formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2005, Johnnyswim has grown immensely over the past ten years.


Johnnyswim is an indie folk band made up of husband and wife duo, Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano. Ramirez possesses soulful vocals that complement the mesmerizing, almost ethereal tones of Sudano. While the calming and lulling vocals may seem like something out of a day dream one might have while in a cozy coffee shop pondering over life at the moment, the stylistically pleasing lyrics also contribute immensely to the distinct sound of Johnnyswim.


In one of their more uptempo songs (“Don’t Let It Get You Down”), that resembles that of Mumford & Sons or The Lumineers, Sudano sings, ​


“You dreamed a dream and they said, “Pay no mind.”

Oh, but momma said, “Girl, faith ain’t for the blind.”

So don’t let it get you, don’t let it get you down.

Don’t let it get you, don’t let it get you down.

Oh, this could be the part of you that you ain’t never seen before.

Oh, this could be the part, the part of you, you wanna be.”


On January 28th, 2016, Johnnyswim will perform at the Key West Theater for the very first time. We are beyond excited to have them grace our new venue, and here is why YOU should join us for what is sure to be a captivating show.
