Emma Roebuck, Progzilla Radio
This is a true solo effort with no frills and some good progressive rock. Brian Johnstone is quite a talent.

About Me

I am a multi genre artist, writer, composer with many musical personas. I have a calling to make music. I am driven to make music of all types. I love the challenge of trying to make good music of whatever type.

The Musical Artist

I release my own music under various project band names depending on the the people, style, genre and purpose. Each project/band has its own style/approach to music making.

I write many styles of music for myself and for others. I have worked with and collaborated in songwriting with several artists including Gary Tallant (of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band) , Judie Tzuke, Redrama (Lasse Mellberg) and Mike Read.

The Entrepreneur/Businessman

I have multiple jobs, roles and skill sets to ensure I can earn a living.
