Josh Johnston: Moon Landing
Joined by Special Guest Jane Willow.
Just a year after his 4th solo album The Art Of Saving Lives, Dublin pianist / singer / songwriter Josh Johnston returns with a new EP, “Moon Landing”.
The new EP features reimaginings of “Moon Landing” and “Swimming On The Moon” from 2018’s The Art Of Saving Lives and 2008’s Asylum Harbour respectively, as well as new tracks “In My World (She Said)” co-written with Dublin songwriter Doug Kinch – and Chris Wood’s soulful song “Come Down Jehovah”.
|Josh Johnston: Moon Landing - October 23rd||€15.00|
The song choice owes a passing nod to the recent 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landings – the songs evoke both the dread and excitement of exploring uncharted territory, as well as the elation of a productive voyage in these new directions.
The EP is the first product of a new studio partnership with producer / engineer Anthony Gibney (Jane Willow, Nick Kely, Blood Red Mountain Band).
Helping Josh out musically on these recordings are Paj Groenland on acoustic & electric guitar, Brian Hogan on bass (Kíla, Preacher’s Son), Dave Hingerty on drums (Kíla, The Frames, Josh Ritter), Scott Flanagan on hammond organ, Bill Blackmore on trumpet and Marco Francescangeli on saxes and clarinet.
