Justin Friello is an upstate New York composer and performer whose music is a blend of pop, folk, R&B, and classical genres and often changes from project to project, making it difficult to pin a single label on it.
What remains consistent are his insightful and emotionally-provocative lyrics, intimate vocals, and skillful and unique approach to guitar writing.
Influenced by artists like Sufjan Stevens, Andrew Bird, and Dave Matthews Band, Justin is known for writing large and unusual orchestrations, though he is equally comfortable letting a vocal and guitar track stand alone. His music features something for everyone, even the most curmudgeonly of music critics.
His short film & EP, "Jack & Jill" can be streamed on Vimeo:
Justin is also the former lead singer and guitarist of the hip-hop fusion band, Stockade Kids.
"[Justin's songs] are audible and rhythmic, melodic and harmonic, arranged for voice and instruments. And they're catchy: the title track is a lilting, bittersweet number with solo acoustic guitar that requires nothing beyond ears to appreciate. ‘Worship You’ is soulful and infectious. ‘Obsessed’ is punchy, driving, rhythmically intricate and layered with trumpet and voice tracks. ‘Confused’ deepens the layers with doubt, and ‘Why Won't You Talk?’ — an aching piano ballad — is simple and rife with pain." - review of Justin's "Jack & Jill" EP, Albany Times Union, 8/18/16
