Justin Young began playing professionally at the age of 16. But his passion for music started practically at birth.
In 2007, after several years of playing with other musicians, Justin Young released his debut album, “On The Way.” As a new artist, he recruited Paul Brown to mix the album, as well as a talented team of musicians. He rose into the smooth jazz world by obtaining radio spins from respected jazz radio stations across the country.
With his 2008 releases “Nothin’ But Love” and “Home for the Holidays”, Justin enjoyed airplay from The Weather Channel and Delta Airlines along with radio stations across the U.S. Since then, Justin has become a budding new star waiting to be launched into commercial success.
After taking time off to get his MBA, Justin is back with a brand new album called Blue Soul. Blue Soul is all about getting back to the basics of real instruments, analog equipment and unique saxophone rhythms. Live musicians performed in the recording studio which gives the songs a distinct uniqueness. No sequencers were used in the making of this album adding to the realness of music. The songs have a lot of raw feel and emotion without the aid of a computer changing the rhythm. The melodies on the saxophone have an undeniable old school feel with a unique twist of Gospel, Funk and R&B.
