Josh Rawlings has had a solid foothold in the Seattle music scene for several years, but the past year has seen his stock soar to unprecedented levels.
Rawlings, a 2001 graduate of Skyline High School, is an accomplished pianist who dabbles in a rainbow of genres, from classic jazz and rock to hip-hop and soul.
A serendipitous connection shot Rawlings into the national limelight. His jazz trio, The Teaching — including bassist Evan Flory-Barnes and drummer Jeremy Jones — earned a 2014 Grammy Award nomination for their collaboration on “BomBom,” part of rapper Macklemore’s and producer Ryan Lewis’ award-winning album, “The Heist.”
