Hi there Justin. Thank you for joining us on Deception Magazine. Hope you’re doing well in times like these. What was it exactly that brought you closer to the field of music?

 

Thanks for having me, hope you are doing well too!
I was the kid who loved playing with the plastic microphone.  I stepped on a stage when I was 5 and knew that’s what I wanted to do the rest of my life.  I started writing songs when I was 9… the first one was about a girl named Leah I liked at camp.  It went “Leah, would you meet me by the pier, you bring the lettuce and i’ll bring the beer.  There may be a deer, but don’t you fear, cause i’ll hold you near.  We’ll drink some lettuce, eat some beer, look at your rear…” It wasn’t very good and I didnt get the girl. 
I then started writing for other people always with the intention of pulling a bruno mars or a Julia michaels and eventually singing my own songs. 

 

 

Besides your immense talent in singing, you have also experience in writing songs for phenomenal artists like Maluma and Ricky Martin and have also worked with great talents like Backstreet Boys. How was that experience like?

I love writing for others as well as myself.  Sometimes its just nice to get out of my own skin and try and help tell someone else’s story.

 

Your new single “Too Good To Lose” is such an exhilarating track! What was the creative process like with the song?

Thank you! The original idea for the song emerged during a writing trip to Sweden. I was telling my  co-writer/producer team Anton Rundberg and Julia Karlsson about my relationship at the time… 
Too Good To Lose is about knowing that you’re being unfair to someone, but loving them so much you can’t let go. I realised I wasn’t a good match for my significant other. I was away all the time, travelling, wrapped up in my work and stubborn. I realised I should let this person go so they can find happiness somewhere else, but I couldn’t do it. It’s also about being able to accept yourself and your partner for who you both are. We all have things about ourselves we wish we could change for the person we love.

 

Did you face any sort of challenges during the production stage of the track? If so, how did you overcome them?

I was lucky enough to work with some very talented co writers and producers, We asked Hit impulse to jump on the track and bring a bit of edge to it, and the combo of Anton, Julia and Hit Impulse really brought it home for me.  Such talented people 

 

Having garnered over 4 Million monthly listeners on your Spotify profile alone, how does it feel to know that your music has such a vast influence?

Ive been incredibly blessed.  I am so lucky I get to do what I love.  My musical journey so far has taken me around the world, performing on stages for millions, and in studios with songwriters and collaborators I respect immensely.  
When I release music, I do it in the hopes of reaching people emotionally.  I do it for tearful calls from friends and messages on instagram about how my music has affected them emotionally and that truly makes me happy.   I really hope the songs connect with more people, and helps us get through this difficult time. 

 

When it comes to creating your music, do you require a specific setting to work in or do you consider yourself easily adaptable?

I consider myself very easily adaptable.  Ive trained myself to write songs wherever ha!

 

If you could have the opportunity to introduce your music to someone only through one track of yours, which song will you choose and why? 

Oh man.  I think right now it would be something that isn’t released yet… ha!  Or If You’re Meant to Come Back or Bigger Than.  It really depends on what the listener needs to hear at the time.  If they need motivation – Bigger Than, if they need to trust the  universe – If You’re Meant to come Back. If they need hope – stargazing 

 

What’s next for you Justin? Any upcoming projects/collaborations you’re currently working on, that you would like your fans to know about?

YES!  So much music coming!!! I can’t wait to share.  And I can’t wait to get back out on the road when all this covid craziness is over.

 

Lastly, is there anything you wish to convey to your fans from all around the world?
YEs.  I hope everyone is ok, and if they aren’t, it will get better. We are in such a difficult time.  Hang in there.
