Justin Roth is a nationally touring singer/songwriter/acoustic guitarist who combines an artful blend of pop hooks laid on a bed of brilliantly inventive guitar technique for a unique new mix of acoustic indie folk. He has released four independent CDs as well as being a core contributor to an instrumental solo guitar album produced for Target Stores, entitled "Lifescapes - Solo Guitar," which has sold over 70,000 copies nationwide. His path to acoustic music was solidified at 17, when he saw innovative guitarist Michael Hedges open for Crosby, Stills & Nash. Seeing that the acoustic guitar was capable of so much more than he had been exposed to before, from that moment on, he knew that it would be the root of his musical world.

His use of alternate tunings, partial capos and his two-hand tapping technique leaves audiences mesmerized and displays his impressive guitar playing that has been described as, “more than just an instrument, but an extension of himself.” Justin has toured with Red House recording artist John Gorka and has opened for some of the finest singer/songwriters on the acoustic music scene, including Shawn Colvin, Martin Sexton, Lucy Kaplansky, Susan Werner and David Wilcox. Equally, his guitar playing has earned him shared stages with some of the greatest fingerstyle players of today, such as Andy McKee and Pat Donohue. A dynamic live performer, Justin has won fans over with his intricate solo guitar instrumentals, heartfelt songs and spontaneous delivery. He has twice been a New Folk Finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival and has won the Indie Acoustic Project's award for Best Song of 2005 for his song "Shine." Justin's new album, "Now You Know," which he recorded, produced and played all the instruments himself, will be released in Spring 2011. "Fans of Leo Kottke or Michael Hedges will find themselves right at home with [Roth's] intricate guitar work...beautifully written lyrics." - San Francisco Art Magazine "One of the best singer/songwriter/guitarists I've heard in ages...Justin Roth is a flat out talent.

Roth rivals a young Willy Porter...His vocal delivery is smooth. His guitar playing is extraordinary." - The Journal Times, Racine, WI ustinroth.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
