Justin is a hybrid artist. His versatility is shown in his style, which ranges from R & B to pop, and much more. Justin was a contestant on Season 8 and 9 of American Idol, where his story of surviving cancer touched many around the world. But his vocal talent is what has propelled him into stardom. Justin has performed covers in his own unique style, but also writes originals, plays guitar and piano, and collaborates with the best in the business.
Justin is from Sandy, Utah, and has been performing and creating music since he was 8 years old. He was in the Cincinnati Boys Choir, Tiny Tim in “A Christmas Carol” and has only taken off from there. Justin won the John Lennon Singer/Songwriter Competition, and toured to Tokyo, Japan. He toured with the One Voice Children’s Choir, won the National Talent Competition at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and has worked with many well-known artists in California.
While serving a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Justin battled cancer. He has not only survived, but continues to be cancer-free to this day. He hopes that he can inspire others to pursue their dreams, no matter the challenges they face.
Justin is releasing two albums soon. The Undercovers, an album that is full of some of his favorite covers, will release on March 15th on iTunes. Familiar Stranger, a hybrid album, will be released on March 29th.
Justin recently opened for David Osmond, who also auditioned for American Idol, at the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo, Utah. Although his fame is rising faster with each performance, Justin remains grounded and grateful for the opportunity to do what he loves.
