Drawing inspiration from his own life, as well as the triumphs and struggles of others, Justin has been compared to Chris Stapleton, Cody Jinks, Johnny Cash and Kurt Cobain in the way that he will grab your heart and ears with his songs, and you won't want him to let go.

    Having released two albums previously in a self-titled EP in 2010 and his "Death and Life" album in 2014, he is currently working on three new albums, which will release throughout 2020. He has opened for and/or played alongside such acts as: Hymn for Her; Evergreen Grass Band; Dames; Michael Perry and the Longbeds; Eggplant Heroes; Greg Gilbertson; James Ignacio; Past & The Present; Brian Bethke; Adelyn Rose; Mark Mallman; Caitlin McGarvey and most recently, the legendary David Allan Coe. You can often hear Justin’s songs on Converge Radio, 99.9 FM in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and the rest of the Chippewa Valley.
