Pop/Jazz/Hip-Hop/Virtuoso Violinist Gareth Johnson has just released his highly anticipated new single “Straight Gangster.” Now available worldwide, download or stream today!


...Regarded as one of the most musical and technically superior artists of his generation; bringing to the stage the vitality, charisma and energy of a 21st century modern virtuoso!

Gareth's love for the beautiful sounds of the violin came after seeing Itzhak Perlman in concert. His desire and passion to play at that point, along with his mother who holds a Doctorate in Music Education, gave him the pathway needed to become the master classical, Hip-Hop/Jazz/R&B and Pop artist he is today.

His studies with master violinists, performances all over the world, and a desire to reach a broader base to spread his love of the violin has allowed him to cross musical genres. This extraordinary talent crosses and connects all borders, all musical genres from Johnny Cash to Stevie Wonder and Bruno Mars, as well as Metallica and Guns & Roses, right into Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s Despacito.

Gareth Johnson is the 2Pac of violin and the first Hip-Hop/Jazz/R&B and Pop violinist to write, produce and perform his music. Together with Gareth's writing and producer partner Juan Blair they have created magic.

In the past 5 years Gareth has taught and performed in South Africa: Johannesburg and Durban as well as Europe: England and the Netherlands. He adds these experiences to past tours in Asia, specifically China, Taiwan and the Republic of Hong Kong, Central America: El Salvador and Europe: Germany and Austria. Gareth has performed with Joshua Bell, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman, and several other world-renowned string players.

Gareth Johnson is that once in a lifetime artist.
