Colorado-born singer Kevin Johnston founded Bright Silence (which MTV’s John Norris calls “Rousing, anthemic and remarkably intimate”) in Brooklyn in 2010. Emerging from NYC’s open-mic-singer/songwriter scene, Johnston has performed original songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live, worked with Kjartan Sveinsson (Sigur Ros) singing a 2-month-long piece of music at NYC’s New Museum and performed to a sold-out Red Rocks crowd with Ian Cooke Band paying tribute to Prince. Between frequent European tours, Johnston released sophomore Bright Silence album Time Is New with guitarist Kirk Schoenherr & bassist Tim Lappin (Chet Faker aka Nick Murphy) and drummer Zach Jones (Sting, Secret Someones, A Great Big World) an album Bandwagon Magazine calls “wide-eyed, optimistic, frequently lifting into pure moments of rapture.” A “Live From Italy” release in 2017 has the new Denver configuration of Bright Silence (led by Johnston) excited to be a full-time part of the Colorado music scene for the first time in a decade.
