Rob Johnson is a musician from London. His latest album ‘Throw The Sun Into The Sea’ is the follow up to his debut 2009 release, ‘Upon a Painted Ocean’ -labelled as "an instrumental album of positively momentous strength” by Revolt Magazine.
‘Throw The Sun Into The Sea’ delves further into his exploration of instrumental music and the ways in which this can be communicated towards an audience.
To illustrate this the album comes in the form of a complete audio/visual experience with 10 short films to accompany the record (found on www.throwthesun.com).
The album was once again produced by Geoff Swan (Jonny Craig, Young Astronaut) and mastered by Jon Astley (Led Zeppelin, The Who, ABBA, George Harrison), and is available physically and digitally from www.robjohnsonmusic.com.
Rob has played guitar in numerous bands over the years (most notably Forward Is The Farewell - who once upon a time supported acts such as Hellogoodbye). Influenced by a wide array of artists, composers and filmmakers, his music is his attempt to do something completely and totally different to establish a name for himself and carry on making records for a very long time.
Rob’s debut album ‘Upon a Painted Ocean’ featured guest vocals from Max Bemis of Say Anything and was touted as "a modern tubular bells." (Overplay). Rob has recently been featured as an artist to watch in Acoustic Magazine, as well as working with and contributing guitar parts to American dub step duo The Beat Kidz.
