Johnny Longlegs

Paris based multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter and producer, Johnny Longlegs expresses his quest for identity through sun-kissed, nostalgic and intimate songs. Fostered by funk, rock, soul and motown sounds, JLL continued nurturing his musicality in Berlin where he got the chance to learn and work alongside people like Pete Smith (The Police, Sting, Stevie Wonder, Cheryl Crow) and Knox Chandlers (R.E.M, Cindy Lauper, Lou Reed, Lady Gaga). His producing and arranging skills led him to tour and collaborate with artists such as Ed Prosek, Lexodus, Wolf & Moon, SÔRA, Julia Jean-Baptiste, Juveniles and Victor Solf. Enriched by these experiences, Johnny Longlegs now directs his energy towards his own music and is getting ready to reveal “Flowers”, the first of several fully self-produced EPs created after returning from a Californian adventure. 6 pieces of music retracing the fantastic escapades of an ephemeral idyll made impossible by the global upheavals of our time. Blending influences of artists ranging from Mac Demarco and Benny Sings to Louis Cole, Vulfpeck, Emily King or Crosby, Stills and Nash, Johnny Longlegs’ sound comes out as unique and refreshing.
