Spectacle – She & Him, Jenny Lewis, Jakob Dylan (episode 11, Season 1)
Spectacle shines the spotlight on a talented and varied group of young singers and songwriters – Jenny Lewis (ex-Rilo Kiley); Jakob Dylan (ex-Wallflowers) and the acclaimed indie duo She & Him, comprised of singer-songwriter and actress Zooey Deschanel and guitarist/producer M. Ward. Coincidentally, they all come from show business families, some more famous than others. Elvis explores this theme, as well as their various talents and musical adventures, in revealing interview segments. A good deal of musical performance and collaboration transpires too, with Jenny Lewis and Elvis teaming up for a rousing version of a song from her new album (on which EC also appears); Jakob Dylan demonstrating a stripped-down version of one of his Wallflowers hits, before duet-ing with Elvis on a lovely new song; She & Him showing off their intriguing, timeless sound; and the entire group hooking up for a fitting finale on one of the host’s signature hits.
