Justin is a self-taught multi-instrumental versed musician who has been playing the guitar since he was 8 years old. His influences range everywhere from the folk vein of Leo Kottke, the psychedelic avante-garde realm of Jerry Garcia and Ravi Shankar, and a deep influence from the world of jazz from the likes of Miles Davis and Chick Corea. Justin is a powerful improviser, which is best portrayed in his solo performances, where he has been known to improvise a piece of music for 10 to 20 minutes while keeping the audience captivated. When not playing acoustic or electric guitars, you can see him on pedal steel guitar, mandolin, banjo, and even keyboards.
