Johnny Labelle (GR)
Having been described as a “deranged Frank Sinatra” and “like he came out of the Twin Peaks’ Roadhouse Club”, Johnny Labelle’s dark, introspective and romantic musical world draws influences from a variety of musical styles: from dream and ambient pop to post-punk and 50’s love ballads.
The Athenian singer-songwriter and producer released his debut album “Cold Fruit” independently in 2019. It was co-produced with director Aaron Khandros, and included multidisciplinary collaborations – Berlin pop artist Magic Island, poet Rae Armantrout, filmmakers Martha Colburn, Zachary Epcar and Karissa Hahn.
In 2020, just one year after the release of his first LP, Johnny Labelle released his second album “XVIII” from Inner Ear Records and in collaboration with producer Vassilis Dokakis, also a founding member of the band No Clear Mind.
Labelle has performed live around the European continent and has shared a bill with artists like Sean Nicholas Savage, Mega Bog, Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Discovery Zone to name a few.
His new album “May Your Dreams Come True” released in April 2023 from Inner Ear Records.
