Justin Levinson is an award-winning, multi-talented singer, songwriter and musician. Justin has won the Billboard Song Contest, the International Acoustic Music Awards Best New Male Artist, as well as being nominated for Sirius Song Writer Discovery of the Year.
Justin grew up in a family immersed in music; His father, and first hero, is a music teacher and songwriter. His great grandmother played the piano for silent pictures. While friends in elementary school would play MC Hammer, Justin would play The Hollies, The Beatles, and Chuck Berry. Justin’s first break came when the great Lester Bowie and Fontella Bass came to his high school to conduct a workshop. They saw his talent on trumpet and snatched him from school to take him on tour. After touring with Bowie and Bass, Justin returned to the Northeast where he attended Berklee College. This is where Justin made his transition into songwriting and released his first album, 1175 Boylston. After his time at Berklee Justin took his talents on tour. The tour took him across country to college campuses and coffee houses. As Justin’s career progressed, it allowed him to go on tours with Tyler Hilton, Teddy Geiger, Anna Nalick, John Waite and Howie Day just name a few. Influenced by the greats of the 60’s, Justin creates self-described “power pop” that draws elements from his favorite artists of that era - the Beatles, The Zombies, and The Beach Boys. He has even drawn comparisons to Ben Folds.
