The electronic imagineer reinterprets new wave, r&b and neosoul into strange new shapes and colors. Recorded live at Sónar 2016.
John Grvy is the electronic project of the young Madrid-born singer J.E.Edward. He easily and gently moves around chillwave, new wave, r&b and electronic neosoul. Imagine a transmutation of Hudson Mohawke, Frank Ocean and James Blake coming into one figure, and you’re part-way there. Despite his youth, his self-confidence on stage and his great band are powerful enough to showcase an impressive show, seen in several festivals and venues across the county. After a couple of EPs, he’s releasing his first album in 2016 via the Red Bull Studios network. Definitely, a young promise to check.
