JohnnySwim with Drew Holcomb, "Ring the Bells"
Written in response to the racially charged attacks in Charlottesville, this acoustic anthem mixes pop, gospel and folk into the same lively package. It's a bright song for darker times, with three singers — Drew Holcomb, Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez — all taking a turn at the mic. Those vocalists share songwriting credit, too, turning "Ring the Bells" — the lead single from the musicians' Goodbye Road EP — into a collective call to action. R.C.
