Welcome to the future, it’s definitely synth based! FOREVER ALIEN is a daring performance project started in 2012 by the Italian artist, Johnny Jay, which blends the surreal with more recognisably traditional sounds, referencing both its Scottish and Italian heritage. After moving to Edinburgh this electronic artist won over the likes of promoters, venues and music fans across Scotland in the alternative and underground scenes. The city inspired him to write and record his first full-length album, Safe as War, which received praise from radio and press across Europe, with interviews on the likes of Radio Libera Tutti, Impatto Sonoro and The Passenger Times.
With plans to expand his musical project and collaborate with local creatives, FOREVER ALIEN will provide a visual experience to complement his ever expanding live audio performance.
FOREVER ALIEN is quickly becoming one of the most sought after electronic musicians in his circle due to the uniqueness of his recordings and live performances. Described as a hybrid of raw hardware synthesizers powered by Johnny’s warm vocals and minimal yet powerful drum-machine patterns, by Unknown Music Pleasures, it definitely has an off-planet feel.
