    Discover Music Project: Episode 65

    DMP has been on an unplanned hiatus lately, but we're back now and have many more episodes planned for 2015 and beyond! The revival starts with Jonny and frequent co-host Taylor presenting the varied and surprising music of Jenny Lewis. We first discovered her as an actress, but she is far more impressive as a singer and writer of songs that balance honesty, sadness, and defiance, often all at once. This retrospective covers her career through stints with Rilo Kiley and The Postal Service, but much of our favorite material comes from just last year. It's a good bet that Jenny Lewis will be making great music for a very long time to come, so we hope this episode can be your primer, or maybe just a refresher on why she is a musical force.
