A huge songwriting talent at work here!

Hemisphere Music, Holland
The Balance of Risk is an excellent and very diverse album
Bruce Gall, ARFM Radio
Beautifully crafted music showing extremely well the compositional capabilities of this artist
CD Services
Amazing songwriting and atmospheres with mix of classic prog/pop elements with contemporary drum programming and soundscapes (about Zdiar)
People Sound (early music portal)
Consent Under Coercion is a damn fine album
Emma Roebuck, Progzilla Radio
This is a true solo effort with no frills and some good progressive rock. Brian Johnstone is quite a talent.
Keith Hannaleck, Prog Rock Music Talk
Fantastic songs, musically brilliant and a pretty good vocalist thrown in there too. This has to be one of the better Prog albums i’ve bought recently.
David McCombe

The Music

Brian Johnstone is a driven and charismatic artist with a unique approach to his blend of music which incorporates a wide variety of styles, genres and influences creating an eclectic collection of albums and songs.

It defies classification but includes heavy influences from modern progressive rock, electronic pop, ambient, country and more,  His innovative arrangements, beautiful melodies and forward-thinking modern approach echo the work of artists the likes of Toto, It Bites and Steve Hackett, just to mention a few.

As a seasoned keyboardist, Brian is part of several bands and side projects, including Zdiar and Scarlet Inside.

His sound is all about great sonic textures, competent musicianship and visionary compositions in a modern multi-genre and progressive rock context, but most of all great memorable songs that engage your ears and soul.
