Josh Rawlings on SoundBetter

Do you need that authentic/soul-stirring piano part to bring a new kind of depth to your song or maybe some playful/Jazz-rich colors & ideas to your beats? If so, you’ve found the right “cat” for the case! I’m a GRAMMY-Nominated studio musicians for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and have worked many other artists like Kesha, Travis Thompson and more.

I’ve been playing piano, improvising and writing music since the age of 3 (for almost 35 years now). I specialize in Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, Jazz piano/keyboard style playing. I’m sort of a Josh-of-all-trades when it comes to music making because I also play many other instruments such as Guitar, Elec. Bass, Drums and many others. I also specialize in songwriting, arranging for strings/horns/choir & do production as well. I received a Bachelor Degree in Jazz Piano Performance from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA and have been making a living performing, recording, teaching and writing music for the past 20 years.

My specializations include:
- Studio recording work specializing in keyboard playing, background vocals, percussion, acoustic/electric guitar, elec. bass & more
- Songwriting, top-line writing and melodic/composition development
- Production work on DAW platforms such as Ableton & Logic Pro X
- Horn, string and vocal arranging
- Transcriptions for written studio music using Finale

    Josh is an extremely talented individual and an amazing person to work with. Despite the state of the world, he was very communicative throughout the process and truly dedicated himself to our song. He took notes very well and worked hard to make sure I was satisfied with the product!
