“Music is energy and music can be healing…music has so many different purposes, but at this stage in my life I’m looking for something that’s a little bit nourishing or just like a slight clue to the universe.” — Jenny Lewis
Jenny Lewis’ 4th record On the Line is a collection of songs that tackle love, lust, relationships and death. Lewis recorded the album in Capitol Records Studio B with a band of legendary instrumentalists — Benmont Tench on keys, Don Was on bass, and Jim Keltner on drums with contributions by Ringo Starr and Beck.
In this episode Jenny Lewis describes the effect that hearing “Govinda Jai Jai” by Alice Coltrane while on a road trip across California with Jim James and Gary Burden had on her spirit and on her approach to her new record.
