Acclaimed recording artist and performer Josh Christina recently announced that he has officially joined the esteemed roster at Blackburn International: the largest entertainment agency for the world’s leading cruise lines.
Josh Christina shares, “I’m super excited to have the opportunity to work with Blackburn International. All I want to do is play the music and the piano rock and roll that I love for people from all over the world. This opens up the chance to do that and not to mention travel and see the world. Cannot wait to see where this leads!”
Called a ‘piano rock phenomenon,’ Christina carries the torch passed down by artists like Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, and Elvis Presley. Having originally made his television debut on Ireland’s Late Late Show, the accomplished performer has delivered countless performances to fans from all over the world.
With offices in the UK, US, Asia, and Australia, Blackburn delivers the very best in entertainment to Royal Caribbean, Disney Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and Carnival.
With the recent rise in popularity of documentaries about Elvis, Whitney Houston, and others, young listeners are expressing a renewed interest in what used to be very controversial music. Christina merges a heightened need for nostalgia with modern rhythm, blues, and rock and roll, appealing to a wide range of people who are seeking a much-needed rhythmic escape.
According to pianist and band leader Daryl Davis, whose credits include Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and BB King, “In the 20th century 1955, it took several young men to create and define Rock ‘n’ Roll. Sixty-five years later and it only takes one young man who embodies all the pioneers to introduce it to the 21st century– that man is Josh Christina.”
In effect, Josh Christina is leading a rock n roll revival all his own. Taking pride in every note he plays, every word he sings, and every moment he spends on stage, Christina breathes life back into the origin story of a genre that shaped music for generations to come, allowing history to repeat itself, while exposing his peers to ‘where it all began.’
