His music is emotional – but is far from “Emo”. Justin’s blend of Acoustic Folk Rock, sweet Pop, and what can only be described as Canadiana, makes it easy for us to hear the influences of such artists as Jim Cuddy, David Gray, Ray Lamontagne, Neil Young, Damien Rice, Pilate (Pilot Speed), and Radiohead. His sultry vocals swoon us to tales of heartbreak and loss and carry his direct and descriptive lyrics right into not only our hearts but our souls. Words that evoke familiar feelings that all listeners can identify with.
