Former child actress Jenny Lewis is best known for fronting indie-pop fixture Rilo Kiley, the Los Angeles group whose earnest, saccharine songs about love and teen angst established it as a fast favorite among the “O.C.” set in the mid-2000s. Since that band called it quits, Lewis’ music has gotten guttier and more nuanced. The Voyager, her third solo effort, out last year on Warner Bros. and produced by Ryan Adams with assistance from big names like Beck, features the songwriter coping with the dissolution of her longtime project and the loss of her father. It’s all backed by a deceptively sunny SoCal sound. South Carolina country singer-songwriter Nikki Lane opens Wednesday’s show.
