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.

" EACH OF MY SONGS TELL A STORY OF MY LIFE"

Early Years

Justin Young was born on June 25, 1980, in Warren, Michigan, the son of a musically-talented father. He took an early interest in music and began playing the saxophone at the age of 9. In his teens, he continued on with the instrument while falling in love with the R&B sounds of groups like Earth Wind & Fire, The Gap Band and Michael Jackson.

Justin began performing with his dad’s Top 40 band, Kaleidoscope. Kaleidoscope developed Justin’s live show and endurance since the calendar had at least 20 shows per month with as many as 5 performances each weekend.

After graduating from high school, he enrolled at Michigan State University and began studying mechanical engineering, but still pursued his passion, a career in music. In 2005, Justin recorded his first album, “Rendezvous,” but it was never nationally released.

Commercial Success

Success came in 2007, after releasing his “On The Way,” the album landed on the Indie charts. He moved to Los Angeles, and began performing with his band through the city.

His next two albums, Nothin But Love (2008) and Home for the Holidays (2008), continued his musical journey. Justin is currently in the studio working on his fourth studio album.

Personal Life

Justin Young is an engineer and is graduating with a Masters in Business Management from The University of Oklahoma in 2014. He lives in Oklahoma with his wife, Rachel and their two children, Tyson and Vivienne.

From the FANS:

Arlene - I must say that I was impressed when I saw Justin Live in Detroit, opening for Dave Koz and I am just as impressed with his CD, it is very enjoyable, and I will be looking for even greater music from him in the future.

Connie E. - Hi Justin: I heard you for the first time just a couple of nights ago at the Capital Jazz Fest at Merriweather. I was blown away and totally into your sound. Congratulations! I am buying the CD tonight. Stay cool!

John Terry - From the vibrant bounce of Sunny, the smoothness of LuvHandles, the cool head bobbing of A Minor Groove, the power of JY Funky, the hope of New Day, to the sheer funk of Expressway 94, this Cd is awesome. You may have thought Justin Young was on the way, I say he's arrived.

Rickey T - Justin there are two types of people in this world; Music lovers and music lovers who love you! Off the chain man!
