This is so Fleetwood Mac 🖤

After releasing four charming albums (at least for my taste), Rilo Kiley dissolved in 2013. Jenny Lewis, the young Stevie Nicks, went on to have a successful solo career as well as collaborations with other musicians.

Her debut solo album, Rabbit Fur Coat, was released in 2006, followed by Acid Tongue in 2008, The Voyager in 2014, and On the Line in 2019. Each of these albums was well-received critically.

Jenny Lewis also established a duo with her then-partner, Johnathan Rice, called Jenny and Johnny, and released I’m Having Fun Now in 2010.

In 2019, she formed a supergroup called Nice as Fuck with Erika Foster (Au Revoir Simone) and Tennessee Thomas (The Like).

Despite her prolific output, Lewis hadn’t broken into the Top 10 charts outside of the United States or won any major awards for her music. She was, nonetheless, widely respected in indie music circles, and her albums earned consistently excellent reviews from critics.
