Biography

Justin King is a self-taught guitarist, renowned for his percussive solo acoustic style which mixes elements of Flamenco, Jazz, Celtic, Classical, and African music.

In 2001, King released Le Bleu. Named after the road on which he lived growing up, Le Bleu dramtically expanded on his acoustic instrumental abilities; out of the nineteen tracks, only one (Ashes) features vocals. The album, though independently released, would receive critical acclaim from many who heard it , and helped to expand Justin’s fanbase. However, the biggest boon to his music was the release of live videos on the internet; Albinoblacksheep still hosts the infamous video of Le Bleu track “Phunkdified”, which served to introduce younger, web-savvy players to King’s music. His live performance of “Knock on Wood” at the Hult Center in Eugene, OR., introduced the notorious double-neck acoustic, further exposing his music.

Following the release of Le Bleu, Justin set his sights upon several projects: including an electronic remix of Le Bleu by the Raging Family, and another instrumental project with Carlos Vamos and Michael Manring. His primary focus, however, was a songwriting-based rock album. Justin assembled a new band with longtime friends Ehren Ebbage (lead guitar) and Drew Desman (bass.

    I really wish Justin would come out with another rock album. Or regular acoustic record. I don't like the whole psuedo-electronica thing and found the last album to be really disappointing.

    After watching the Phunkdified video, I'm convinced he has at least one rubber hand.

    I love how Justin King is able to write a good pop song, and use his talent in a subdued way. I don't even like pop, but he sure does it right.
