Jenny Lewis

“There but for the grace of God go I.”

Jenny Lewis, formerly of Rilo Kiley and a friend of Conor Oberst, grew up in a family that was culturally Jewish but not observant. She jokes of her upbringing in Los Angeles, “My family worship[ed] at the showbiz altar.” And yet her interest in spirituality is frequently reflected in her songs. On the track “Rise up with fists” she decries religious hypocrisy and declares grace.
