Westfield Presents: Emerging Icons Live

July 10, 2013
I'm playing live at Westfield next Sunday - fulfilling a life long dream of playing outside Waitrose... so come down and hangout if you're in town! 

Here's the Emerging Icons write up: 
"Our acoustic Sundays down at Westfield London continue with an impeccable instrumental showcase from the brilliant Rob Johnson. His skills as a guitarist take the spotlight as his brilliant, spellbinding tunes give acoustic music a whole new sound and a unique edge. This is a set that will more than likely stop passers-by dead in their tracks to investigate where the stunning stream of sound is coming from. Having spent a number of years in many different bands, collaborating with everything from film makers to composers, rockers and dub step artists; he is a master of his craft and a multi-skilled performer. Kinda like a Swiss Army Knife. But a sexy, musical one."

NEXT GIG: Salisbury Arts Centre - Live Lunch 24th March

March 12, 2013
This is gonna be a good one!... My gig at Salisbury Arts Centre next Sunday has been named as one of the top 5 Emerging Icons gigs in the UK next week!

Rob Johnson at Salisbury Arts Centre: Salisbury, Wiltshire
"How about summat a bit different for your Sunday? Not only do we have a gig that’s taking place at lunchtime instead of an evening, we also have an artist who will stand apart from most of the other Emerging Icons on your playlist. Rob Johnson is a purveyor of fine instrumental tunes- making for a perfectly chilled addition to your afternoon (particularly for those of you with poorly heads from the night before.) With his influences ranging from the cinematic genius of Hans Zimmer to the electronica of Daft Punk, the acoustic vibe of John Mayer, darkness of NIN and everything in between… there will be creative vibes and epic soundscapes ahoy. On his Emerging Icons profile, Rob says: ‘Thanks for checking out my page. This automatically makes you twice as cool as you were before. Just so you know.’ How much cooler will seeing him in person make you? The mind boggles."

If you have a spare 5 minutes please check out my page on Emerging Icons and listen, watch and you know, like me and all that... I'll love you forever. rJx
