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, the critically acclaimed ‘Upon a Painted Ocean’
(“…an instrumental album of positively momentous strength.” REVOLT MAGAZINE).
The album delves further into Johnson’s exploration of instrumental music and the ways in which this can be communicated towards an audience.
To illustrate this the new album comes in the form of a complete audio/visual experience with 10 short films to accompany the record (which can be found on the website www.throwthesun.com).
The album was produced by Geoff Swan (Jonny Craig, Young Astronaut) and mastered by Jon Astley (Led Zeppelin, The Who, ABBA, George Harrison), and is available physically, digitally and as a pay what you want download from www.robjohnsonmusic.com.
Johnson 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, these albums are his attempt to do something completely and totally different to hopefully establish himself in the industry and carry on making records for a very long time.
Johnson’s debut album Upon a Painted Ocean featured guest vocals from Max Bemis of Say Anything and was touted as “a modern tubular bells.”
