Child Actress Jenny Lewis Grows Up And Makes Indie Rock + Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Jenny Lewis has been making indie rock for more than twenty years now. Yes, she records for major label Warner Bros., but her approach and her many collaborators are firmly indie. 

After acting in numerous films and TV shows in the 1980s and early 1990s, Lewis co-founded the band Rilo Kiley in 1998.  he went on to many more music projects and collaborations, and a solo career that has been going for over a decade. 

Her new full-length, "On The Line" is the kind of focused and well-crafted record that serves to remind the world that Jenny Lewis is still a vital artist.
