Justin In The Press
Most press articles are more about my justinguitar.com site than the album - but me "the artist" and me "the teacher" are the same thing and both aspects of my musical life are important to me: making music and sharing the ability to make music are things that I want to spend the rest of my life developing... and lets face it - there are hundreds of albums out every week and the press are not likely to get excited about another singer songwriter releasing an album, but justinguitar is more interesting press story. I hope people like you that find my music from the guitar lesson site dig the music I make too.
I don't like every album I hear, so I certainly can't expect everybody to like my music, so I even put links up here to some of the more "mixed" reviews!!
