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.
