Biography

Among the uncommon eccentric, eclectic recordings performers who were able to courtroom main acclaim, both critical and popular, Kevin Johansen and his music group, the Nada, charmed viewers throughout Latin America, in Argentina especially, and racked up 3 Grammy nominations for just their second recording, Sur o Zero Sur. A multicultural designer to say minimal, Johansen was created in Alaska of most places but was raised in Argentina, the child of the Argentine mom and an American dad. He shifted to NEW YORK in 1990 and resided there for pretty much a decade. Within the NY, he performed at CBGB’s frequently and also performed on the Knitting Manufacturer as well as the Mercury Lounge, obtaining lots of efficiency experience along the way and developing the Nada. Right before he came back to Argentina in 2000, settling in Buenos Aires, he documented his debut record, The Nada. Released in Argentina by Los Añoperating-system Luz and in Spain by K Industrias, the record explored all sorts of cross types designs and, like his following albums, was a bilingual affair. Therefore, it earned over critics quite quickly, as those people tend to actually choose that type of innovative, multicultural, and extremely literate music against the great quantity of commercial item they need to deal with time in and day trip. The record was just a little slower to make an impression on mass audiences, nevertheless. That would include Johansen’s next recording, Sur o No Sur, released in 2003 by Los Añoperating-system Luz in Argentina and by Sony Discos in the rest of Latin America. This recording was a substantial step forward, once more eclectic but this time around even more therefore, comprising an impressive 20 tracks, most of them distinctly exclusive (for example, the trunk cover includes short explanations by Johansen of what design each song is usually — for instance, “Popklore” is usually one, “Barry White colored Meets Nirvana” is usually another). Once more, critics adored it (it garnered three Latin Grammy nominations, including Recording of the entire year and Track of the entire year), but this time around audiences were a lot more receptive, with Johansen + the Nada carrying out for huge viewers throughout Latin America and Spain and touring through the entire English-speaking world, as well. Third , whirlwind of achievement, he finally resolved right down to record his third recording, City Zen, that was a far more understated affair but still lined up crucial acclaim right from the start.
