Johnny Azari (Brooklyn) plays his own mutant form of the Mississippi Delta-Blues. His live shows blend music with storytelling. Azari has been on national tour since 2013, performed on Fox, NPR, WWOZ, and recorded his fourth LP, "Songs From A Motel Room," exclusively in motels during his 2016 tour. Azari has scored film (“Illusions & Mirrors,” starring Natalie Portman), served as guest lecturer and performer at Brown University and seen two of his songs, “Occupation Blues” and “Freedom Glory Be Our Name” gain viral success.
Johnny Azari was born in Shiraz, a city known for wine, poetry, wine, and revolution. At a year old, he was relocated to a city known as New York; noted for grit, madness, and proliferation, where he was raised. When Johnny isn't on tour, he lives in Brooklyn writing comedy and producing music. These things have no influence on him whatsoever.
Johnny Azari has been on tour for 6 years straight and has done over 200,000 miles of shows. His act is a mix of Mississippi Delta Blues & standup comedy. Despite having scored films starring Natalie Portman & Cate Blanchette, headlining 42 states, and the release of 5 albums, he still sleeps in his van 90% of the time.
