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: https://vimeo.com/255639468
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
