Jonny Kaplan & the Lazy Stars

Jonny Kaplan is a travelling troubadour in the truest sense. Whether sailing to a far off island, playing sold-out shows in Europe with his band, riding motorcycles up and down the West Coast or wandering around a developing country with his acoustic guitar in hand, it’s all part of the same journey. And it’s the journey of a true artist.
