He is a musician with a voice that you just want to keep listening to and piano skills that perfectly suit every song he plays.
His influences include Vince Jones, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, John Farnham, Jackson Browne, Donny Hathaway, Nat King Cole, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Billy Joel, Dave Brubeck, and Nina Simone.
Justin is always developing as a performer, and gets really inspired by live music and simply by the outstanding quality of other musicians. Striving to capture that moment when you connect with your listener, because every song tells a story.
Justin grew up in Sydney, learning to play piano by listening to TV commercials, he started playing in bands as a teenager. He studied Music in Lismore, then returned to Sydney, playing in several ensembles before heading off to Canada. Arriving back in Australia he worked throughout Far North Queensland and The Northern Territory as a Resident Entertainer for some of Australia’s premier Resorts and Hotels. He loves to perform, yet even after nearly 30 years of playing live he still has a healthy level of nervous tension that inspires him before every performance.
Recently Justin settled in the Shoalhaven and is loving the relaxed atmosphere, the beauty and the abundance of quality musicians to play alongside.
