  • Saw him last night in Bethlehem, had no idea what to expect (had never heard of him), instantly loved his music. Played acoustic all by himself, KILLER talent.
  • Saw him in Annapolis, MD a few weeks ago. While the show was good, I'd only say 50% was amazing. That 50% was just Justin and his guitar. I saw him twice last year, once just him and the other with him and and his bassist (Bryn Davies - who is awesome slapping that upright) and I much prefer it that way. His current guitarist is playing electric and that along with the bass player and drummer really drowns out Justin's killer acoustic guitar playing. JTE is an amazing guitarist and that's what I want to hear, not the guy who looks like the Lindsey Buckingham parody on Saturday Night Live. Hopefully this lineup doesn't last long because I won't pay to see him again if I get half a show worth hearing.
