Johnathan Rice returns to the UK on November 25 with new album ‘Good Graces‘, the first new material from Rice since Jenny and Johnny’s 2010 release ‘I’m Having Fun Now’. The new LP features various contributions from the likes of his Jenny & Johnny partner Jenny Lewis, The Watson Twins and Rilo Kiley’s Pierre De Reeder.
Growing up between America and Scotland, Rice moved to New York in September of 2001. His first solo album ‘Trouble Is Real’ dropped four years later, and he’d formally arrived. Seeing song placements everywhere from Grey’s Anatomy to The O.C., to the Hangover 2 Soundtrack, he has toured the world as a headlining artist and also supporting R.E.M., Ray Lamontagne, Pavement, Belle And Sebastian, Bright Eyes, Death Cab for Cutie, Phoenix, and more.
Even though ‘Good Graces’ is unequivocally Rice’s vision, he wasn’t entirely alone. Over the course of seven days, he tracked the album alongside Dawes bassist Wiley Gelber and longtime drummer Jason Boesel at engineer Pierre de Reeder’s Kingsize North Studio in North Hollywood.
