      Bio

      "I recorded my first very homemade demo on a karaoke machine in 8th grade. I took it with me to the Boyz II Men concert and gave it to a security guard to pass on to them. Im still waiting for them to call." Justin Young did get his first call though, after a high school economics project landed him in a local recording studio. The class voted to market and sell a cassette of Justin and a couple of friends performing three songs. The very first studio they called agreed to donate studio time. The owner was so impressed that a few months later they offered Justin a record deal through their independent label. Over the next five years, Justin would accumulate 12 number one radio hits in Hawaii, over 70,000 units sold and three Hawaiian Music Awards. Justin has enjoyed his success in the islands but it has never tempered his drive to broaden his audience and his music. In 2000, Justin left Hawaii for Los Angeles where he attended a two-year music program at UCLA. Im really grateful for what Ive been able to do in Hawaii and for everything Ive learned, on-the-job. But Ive always hoped it would be a stepping stone. Continuing to perform and write, Justin has evolved into an eclectic singer/songwriter who has a true gift to communicate to his audience. Perhaps his greatest appeal, however, is his sheer ability to cross multiple genres at once. Justin combines his favorite elements from the pop/rock-singer/songwriter and the neo-soul genres. His music is never confined to just one sound or style. I love things that cross boundaries. Like most people, I listen to more than one style of music. I just try to take my favorite aspects from those genres and throw them in a blender. The challenge is to make sure its still tasty when youre done with it. Justins talent and skill in bringing multiple elements to the stage have allowed him to collaborate on various songs featured in such movies as Shallow Hal and An Uninvited Guest. Justin currently lives and performs in Los Angeles and has been traveling to New York City to work with producer/engineer Ed Tuton (Alana Davis, Maxwell, Eagle Eye Cherry). These "demo sessions", along with previous home recordings, are the start of what Justin hopes to be his next project. Stay tuned -In collaboration with Selin Darkalstanian
