Brilliant performance by all. Just loved it all, especially the performance by Johnnyswim. I am so proud of Amanda. I know her Mother is smiling in heaven, and her voice and beauty (both inside and out) along with her soulful husbands voice and talents are great enough to reach all that way. Thanks for bringing that to us Daryl and Thank you 'Johnnyswim' for the amazing music you bless us with.. what a JOY.. Bob Conti

WOW! Just watched the JOHNNYSWIM episode for the first time! WOW! That has to be in my top 5. Beautiful blend of voices; especially for DWYW, BWYA. That has always been one of my favorites and they brought it to a new level! EXCELLENT EPISODE!

Married couple Abner and Amanda-Sudano Ramirez join Daryl and the band for a six-song set that includes a pair of Daryl Hall and John Oates classics, including the Top 10 single, "Adult Education," one of two songs recorded for the 1984 compilation Rock and Soul Part 1, and "Do What You Want, Be What You Are," the song from their 1976 album, Bigger Than Both Of Us, which was also the title of their 2009 Sony Legacy four-CD box set. The group then joins forces on four JOHNNYSWIM originals, including "Diamonds," the title track from their full-length debut, produced by Abner and slated for release April 29 on their own indie label Big Picnic Records, as well as "Home," a Creedence Clearwater-styled swamp-rocker that perfectly captures the Live from Daryl's House setting. There are also performances of the title track from their critically acclaimed Heart Beats EP, and a soulful rendition of "Annie."

Amanda was exposed to music at a young age, while Abner studied music at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in his native Jacksonville, FL. The two met in 2006 in Nashville and started collaborating musically after discovering their similar influences of folk, soul and rock. Since then, they've relocated to Los Angeles, released two critically lauded EPs and performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and the Today Show. The duo has toured extensively, including stops at SXSW, Spoleto Festival, Bonnaroo and a support slot for Emeli Sandé. They were chosen as VH1's first-ever "You Oughta Know" artists and have performed on the network's The O Music Awards and Do Something Awards shows. Vogue called their music "infectious," Entertainment Weekly raved, "As lovely as they are talented," and Paste said of the duo, "one of a kind."

JOHNNYSWIM are scheduled to play at SXSW in Austin (March 12-14), the New Orleans Jazz Fest (May 2) and the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE (June 19).
