Johnny Azari is a musician, composer, song writer, record producer, and musician. Johnny was born in Shiraz, a city known for wine, poetry, opium, and revolution. At a year old, he was relocated to a city known as New York, a place noted for grit, madness, money, and proliferation. There he was raised. When Johnny isn't on tour, he lives in New Orleans writing and recording. These things have no influence on him whatsoever.
Johnny plays his own mutant form of the Mississippi Delta-Blues. His live shows blend music with storytelling and comedy. Azari has been on national tour since 2013 and he recorded his fourth LP, "Songs From A Motel Room," during his 2016 tour. Azari has scored film (“Illusions & Mirrors,” starring Natalie Portman) and served as guest lecturer and performer at Brown University. He has seen two of his videos, “Occupation Blues” and “Freedom Glory Be Our Name” gain viral success.
