It was in 1996 that Jay-Jay Johanson, “a young man from a cold climate”, fascinated by the Bristol sound they called trip-hop and Portishead in particular, first tapped delicately on eardrums all over the world. The intoxicating album that definitively put this rare and elegant Swede on the map was called “Whiskey”. It was the beginning of an enthralling adventure.
Johanson’s latest release is called “Kings Cross” and again he manages to capture with his melancholy voice, singing haunting melodies, dressed up in mysterious sounds and experimental drum beats. Live to be seen and heard:
