ARTIST BIO

Tall Juan is as tall (about 6 feet 3 inches) as he is named Juan, and in his brief career, he has lovingly commanded the art of pastiche. On his 2017 debut, ‘Olden Goldies’ Juan Zaballa introduced himself in 15 short songs as a rockabilly crooner raised on the Ramones—Iggy Pop doing an Elvis bit, maybe vice versa. The Buenos Aires-born singer made his way to Far Rockaway, Queens, where he honed his goofy brand of punk alongside former roommate Mac Demarco and songwriter Juan Wauters (from whom “tall” distinguishes Zaballa).In ‘Atlantico’ (2020), drawing on the music of his youth, Buenos Aires-born songwriter Juan Zaballa’s second album cleverly illuminates Latin America’s rich musical heritage.
Recently he’s been introducing to his live set new songs that will be part of his third LP.
