Baltimore Piano Phenom Josh Christina to Release Third Album Recorded at Historic Sam Phillips Recording Studio
Baltimore based piano player, songwriter and singer, Josh Christina is releasing his third album recorded at Sam Phillips Recording studio in Memphis, TN. Josh co-produced this album with two-time Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Jon Carroll. This piano driven production--drums, bass, piano, guitar, organ and lead vocals were all done live--just as it was done at Sun studios in the 50's. The music ranges from upbeat rock/pop, moving ballads to soulful blues.
Baltimore-based piano sensation Josh Christina announced today the upcoming release of his third album "Instincts," which will be available May 20 - the same day Christina will host an album release concert at the Grand Hall of the Towson American Legion.
The album offers eleven tracks, eight written by Christina, one by two-time Grammy award winner Jon Carroll, one co-written with Carroll, and one by Bill Danoff (Starland Vocal Band and writer of “Take Me Home Country Roads”). The album was co-produced by Christina and Carroll and recorded at historic Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, TN.
"It was such a great learning experience writing and co-producing with Jon Carroll," said Christina. "This album is a real maturation of my writing skills and musically takes me to the next level."
Christina has appeared on the “Late, Late Show” in Ireland, where he debuted his single “Rockabilly Saturday Night” from his last album “I’m 21.” He frequently plays sold out shows and is in high demand in the Baltimore-Washington area. He has been invited to perform at the Cincinnati Blues Festival in August of this year.
The Grand Hall of the Towson American Legion is located at 125 York Road in Towson, MD. The album release concert is open to the public and all are welcome. To pre-order “Instincts” or to get more information about the release concert go to www.joshchristinamusic.com.
