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. These things had no influence on him whatsoever. Mr. Azari has been active in both subversive and artist endeavors since the age of 15.
He has shared the stage with acts including The New York Dolls, Kiss, Nouvelle Vague, and Sussan Deyhim. He has collaborated with artists Shirin Neshat, Mohsen Namjoo, and David Kahn. A decade of work has seen him release 2 LPS and 6 EP’s, score a feature film, co-write a play for Performa, tour EU and USA,create a handful of videos for youtube, two of which (occupation blues | freedom glory) enjoyed viral success, and has earned him attention from The New York Times, CNN, Huffington Post, Brooklyn Vegan, The New York Observer, and Fuse.
