Jay-Jay Johanson



Storytelling. About the melody of whistling, or cigarette smoke flying back in time. Sometimes in four simple lines, and sometimes in precise, tactile, complex images. All of this musically to the extreme: from the catchy couple of notes to the complex melodic lines. Jay-Jay Johanson is "like Chet Baker singing with Portishead" and "like Massive Attack invited Frank Sinatra into the studio". Soft, endlessly silky chanson, to trip-hop beats.

25 years after the release of his first album, the Swedish genius comes to the Hajó stage with new material. On the record Rorschach Test, you can hear all the influences of genres that Jay-Jay has experienced in recent years, but the rich, soundtrack-like genre characteristic of his earlier work remains. The ten-track album covers the entire range of emotions: from the intimate to the violently raw.

Be the first to listen to the new album live, see you at A38 on April 20.


Wallners is a family of four siblings from Vienna - the capital of classical music. Raised by a piano manufacturer they produce mesmerizing songs somewhere in between Rhye, James Blake or Lana Del Rey. The mature sound and exceptional asthetic is held together by the voice of singer Anna Wallner.
