Linear John is a new artist on German based Agogo Records. Long time respected saxophonist from the flourishing Finnish jazz scene stepped to new territories to present his own music. This time as a composer, singer, multi- instrumentalist and a video artist. His approach is a fresh combination of garage-jazz, punk, electronica topped with catchy pop songs.
The debut album 'Hits with a Twist' which was released in fall 2016 has gained some very good reviews and a nice amount of airplay in Germany, France, Portugal and Finland.
Linear John live gigs have been an interesting combination of different musical genres including indie pop, punk and modal vocal jazz. The second album 'Double Parade' was released by Agogo Records in spring 2018.
