His raw energy and dynamic performances have
earned him a dedicated fanbase and critical acclaim, setting him up for a promising future as one of the most exciting voices in music today.
JAWNY took the stage at Bowery Ballroom on March 22, manifesting a dream he had seven years ago of playing there. The venue was packed with fans and his label, eager to see the rising indie-pop star perform. JAWNY's set was filled with energy, including a mannequin dressed in a blonde wig and the same clothes as him, reminiscent of his new album's promo photos. He had some humorous moments like offending the entire crowd by saying LA was the best city in the world (despite knowing NY and LA are diametrically opposed enemies).
Despite a few hiccups, like his capo falling off his guitar, JAWNY's set was a hit, and he even let the crowd take over and sing during "Lalala" like an acapella choir. He ended the night with a heartfelt speech about the music industry and capitalism before leaving the stage for a five-minute ovation.
