ETHAN AZARIAN

ARTIST | MUSICIAN
Ethan_3.jpg

Ethan was born in Cabot, Vermont to artistic parents. His Mom is a print maker and children's book illustrator. His Dad also known as Tom Banjo is a banjo player and a cartoonist. Ethan was introduced to music and art at an early age.

 

Ethan was influenced and inspired by his Mom and Dad's musician friends who were playing folk music in cafes and clubs in and around the Boston area in the early 1960's (Judy Collins, Tai Majal, Bill Keith Ken Perlman and many others). Musicans would come up to his Mom and Dad's farmhouse in Vermont and spend the weekend camping out and playing music late into the night.

 

In his early 20's Ethan and his childhood friends started the Punk Rock Band the Hollywood Indians mixing punk with Ethan's folk roots and sensibilities. They played the club circuit up and down the east coast all through the 1980's often pairing up with other bands at the time such as Dump truck, Dead Milk Men, Pixies, Phish, Volcano Sons and  Del Fuego's.

 

In the late 80's Ethan moved to Austin, Texas and formed the much beloved local band the Orange Mothers. Ethan and long-time collaborator bassist for Orange Mothers Jeff Johnston now play together as the duo called Two Telephone Wednesdays. Jeff often sings through a telephone and accompanies Ethan on the musical saw.

In the early 90's, Ethan moved to Austin and formed the band, THE ORANGE MOTHERS.  Ethan and Jeff Johnston now play with Lindsey Verrill. During the pandemic Ethan has been playing on Facebook and Instagram live on Wednesdays, 7 -8 pm CST

FROM THE AUSTIN CHRONICLE: Vermonter Azarian and Dallasite Johnston's richly textured strain of songwriting first emerged when the two performed together in the Orange Mothers. Since then, the Austin duo have whittled ever closer to the essence of emotions that words usually fail to capture. Whether transmuting a sense of well-being or of queasy foreboding, the primary characteristic of these songs remains overwhelming humanness.
