When indie rock band Rilo Kiley emerged onto LA’s burgeoning alt scene in the early 2000s, the innocent falsetto of lead singer Jenny Lewis carved a distinct niche for the group. In fact, it was the idiosyncratic kitsch of her folksy vocals that drew a distinction around Lewis, causing her to branch out on her own. In doing so, she built a diverse body of work characterized by quirky yet masterful songwriting and soulful roots rife with the nostalgia of country Americana. Lewis’ bluesy lyrics are often marked by tongue-in-cheek approaches to everyday hardships, giving them a bittersweet color that’s grown to be her signature trademark. And these are the songs that best exemplify the indie songstress’ lovable stamp.
