Johnny Azari was born in Shiraz, a city known for wine, poetry, opium, and revolution. At only a year old, he was relocated to a city known as New York; noted for grit, madness, money, and proliferation. He is current living in New Orleans attempting to abort his liver like a stillborn when he isn’t on tour.
Johnny plays his own strain of foot stomping, slide guitar, finger picking, vocal howling, delta-blues. His live shows blend a traditional style of music with storytelling and comedy. Azari has been on national tour since 2013, play- ing over 300 shows. He has released three DIY LP’s., and is currently recording his fourth, “Songs From A Motel Room'” in motels during his 2015 national tour. Azari has scored film (“Illusions & Mirrors,” starring Natalie Portman), served as guest lecturer and performer at Brown University and seen two of his videos, “Occupation Blues” and “Freedom Glory Be Our Name” gain viral success. Johnny Azari is your 21st century rambling man.
