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
