About Okorie “OKCello” Johnson 

Okorie “OkCello” Johnson is an American cellist-composer whose music integrates cello, live-sound-looping and improvisation on original compositions which collide classical with jazz, EDM, reggae and funk.

He is a recipient of the Alliance Theatre’s 2018 Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab grant, and a 2018 Creative Loafing Readers’ Choice winner, for Best Local Jazz Act. His sophomore album Resolve was named one of ArtsATL’s top local albums of 2018.

OkCello has balanced musical pursuits – which include performing and recording with major label artists such as De La Soul, India.Arie and Big Boi – with a career as an educator. In 2015, he launched “Epi.phony,” a multi-city, 12-show, concert series that produced the track list for his first album Liminal which established him as a pioneer of electronic and experimental string music in the United States.
