Rob Johnson is a
musician from London. His 2nd album ‘Throw The Sun Into The Sea’ was the
follow up to his debut 2009 release, ‘Upon a Painted Ocean’ - labelled as
"an instrumental album of positively momentous strength” (REVOLT).
‘Throw The Sun...’ delves further into an exploration of instrumental music and the ways in which this can be communicated towards an audience. To illustrate this the album came in the form of a complete audio/visual experience with 10 short films to accompany the record (found on www.throwthesun.com).
Rob has played guitar in numerous bands over the years and is influenced by a wide array of artists, composers and film makers. This music is his attempt to do something completely and totally different to try 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, played at the London Acoustic Guitar Show as well as working with and contributing guitar parts to American dub step duo The Beat Kidz, with their collaboration (a remix of Madness by MUSE) receiving regular airplay on KROQ's Roq N Beats show.
