For Immediate Release March 9, 2015
Country Singer/Songwriter Robby Johnson Back In The Studio
Recording New Music For 2015
With Award-Winning Producer James Stroud
“It has been an incredible time in the studio with a legendary producer, award winning engineer, iconic players tracking songs from Nashville’s top songwriters. You can’t ask for more than that, period. It felt really great to be back recording. There were lots of moments where everybody cheered after a track was done.” – Robby Johnson
(NASHVILLE, TN)- Country singer/songwriter Robby Johnson isn’t wasting any time as the new year gets under way. Starting 2015 off with the resolution to “find the best country songs out there” for his forthcoming release, he spent the last few weeks meeting with the genre’s top songwriters and working with the award-winning producer James Stroud (Tim McGraw, Shelby Lynne) for his debut album. This month, the Nashville-based artist entered the studio to get new recordings laid down.
Johnson has a lot to build upon from his 2014 musical journey as well. In just the last year, he performed his song, “South of Me” on Late Show With David Letterman, saw the music video for the track near the 3 million mark on YouTube and top CMT Pure’s 12-Pack Countdown an impressive seven times. He also drew the praise of the music media – Billboard called him “romantic, delightful, warm, and inviting.” Music News Nashville describes Johnson as, “soulful and simmering.” Roughstock declared the artist “a singer well equipped for stardom.” And, Country Outfitter Style wrote, “With a voice like this and the looks of David Beckham, it’s time we all got to know Robby Johnson.”
Those “looks of David Beckham” turned the heads of the fashion press this past Fall when he walked the red carpet at the 48th Annual CMA Awards wearing a DSquared2 shirt, jacket, jeans and John Varvatos boots. Johnson was featured in USA Today, The Tennessean, TV Guide, AOL, Celebrity Life, ABC Eyewitness News Los Angeles, and other major media outlets.
Meanwhile, Johnson – who has a distribution deal with Sony RED Distribution – is in the midst of putting together dates for the U.S. and Europe for 2015 with a stop in France for a not-yet-revealed project with Amazon TV Networks.
