Rob Johnston hails from Hampshire and has been writing, performing and recording his unique style of instrumental guitar music and songs for many years in Art Centres, clubs and major Acoustic and Folk Festivals.
Rob has a stunning guitar technique that blends many styles (both finger picking and plectrum) and he uses multiple tunings to enhance the sound he makes. Not afraid of a bit of technology, Rob uses looping effects to add intricate layers of melody and guitar percussion to his instrumental pieces and his subtle and poetic songs.
The latest Album, Message to the Moon (Wooden Box Records) is a showcase for the rich and emotive range of ideas that this unique and skilled player can produce.
“Fantastic…an absolute pleasure”
- BBC Radio Solent.
“..this guy has his guitar so powerfully under his spell that we haven’t seen or heard anything like him on L&Loud in a long, long time. Interested in looping and layering? This is how you do it.”
