Josh Johnston is a pianist, singer/songwriter and composer based in Dublin, Ireland. Having completed a degree in Popular Music at Salford University (England), he returned to Dublin in 1998 and continued his musical pursuits there, developing parallel careers as a solo artist and a session musician playing piano live and on record for many other artists, most notably Roesy and violinist David MacKenzie, SJ McArdle, Kila, Ronan Swift, Stewart Agnew, and Keith Mullins to name a few. He is also organist and musical director at the Unitarian Church in Dublin, and director of the Chambrette Ensemble, a new vocal ensemble formed in January 2010.
Musically, his piano style is varied, melodic and atmospheric, his work is said to - sometimes recalling shades of Keith Jarrett, other times a more folky sound. He has proven himself to be versatile on the many recordings he has appeared on and these diverse soundscapes are collected together on his own CDs (Three Friends – 2000, Asylum Harbour – 2008). This evening Shandon Records will release Josh’s 3rd solo CD, a piano solo set called “The Shape Of Things“ at The Unitarian Church, Stephen’s Green in Dublin. Josh will also be appearing at the following UK venues during October 2010 Unitarian Chapel Brighton Saturday 2nd at 8pm.
