Part 1 of Johnnyswim: The Enneagram and Abner (Type 7) and Amanda (Type 9)
What does it sound like when an Enneagram 7 (The Enthusiast) feels safe enough to reveal his true vulnerability? Tune in as Johnnyswim’s Abner and Amanda explore their deeper sides and talk with Ian about how the Enneagram has played a role in their relationship and their band. This interview was so great we made it a two-part series, so don’t miss next week, when their manager Jay King jumps into the conversation as well. They'll open up about how the Enneagram has helped them in their personal relationship and their working relationship.
As a unit, they face life’s ups, downs, highs, lows, trials, tribulations, tragedies, triumphs, and everything in between. They change, learn, and grow as one. However, Los Angeles band JOHNNYSWIM doesn’t just seem like a family; it is a family. At the core, husband-and-wife—Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano—translate the memories, moments, and milestones on their journey into spirited, slick, and soulful anthems steeped in singer-songwriter tradition, yet amplified by alternative experimentation, rock energy, and pop ambition.
The music moves as the couple’s life does, scrapbooking unforgettable experiences in melody like an eternal keepsake of their relationship.
In early 2017, JOHNNYSWIM commenced work on ideas for what would become their 2019 third full-length, Moonlight [Britannia Row Recordings/BMG]. Amidst a series of professional changes and Amanda’s pregnancy with their second child, they kick-started the next chapter."
