Justin Blackburn began expressing himself through the written word at the age of six and has not looked back.  In collaboration with Kenny Norsworthy, Blackburn created a controversial stir with the US Government with their powerful novel Gifted Disabilties (2005). This novel caused quite an uproar in the underground world especially with lead singer of the acclaimed Fat Possum Record’s band Co., Brian Hannon who published a collection of Blackburn and Norsworthy’s early poetry It’s Hard To Get There When You Are Already There which led to Justin Blackburn being voted Upstate Poet Of The Year in The Beat Magazine in 2007. In 2008 the highly acclaimed band Coma Cinema (www.comacinema.org) began using Justin Blackburn’s poems and turning them into songs. In 2009 Blackburn had two chapbooks of poetry published the hilariously wild Farting Fire by Virgogray Press and the emotional cleansing Female Human Whispers Of Strong Masculine Gentleness by Shadow Archer Press and became the highest seller for both publications.  Justin Blackburn knows his accolades do not make his existence less of a cage and prefers to show his depth and inspiration through his writing and his performing instead of the past but he appreciates everything he has been through.  

“All creative adventure whether it is art or music or poetry or filmmaking or comedy or dancing or chill waving or living simply or electron microscoping are all very similar because they are blessed creative expressions of the soul, spirit, mind, heart, and once one realizes this they all become a lot easier to do and feel completely natural while doing. I love artistic expression of all kinds.” -- Justin Blackburn
