Justin Nozuka

This week’s feature is on a very young up and coming artist. Justin Nozuka is only 21 but has a soulful voice like he’s been singing for decades. Nozuka is a singer/songwriter who plays the guitar as well as he sings. His style mixes a little soul, blues, and pop to create a sound that is irresistible.

Not only can he sing and play the guitar but he writes his own songs including some heart wrenching tracks such as “Save Him” and “Criminal.” Nozuka began writing his own songs at age 12 and the earliest of his songs on Holly, "Supposed to Grow Old" and "I'm in Peace," were written when he was 15.

Half Japanese, half American Justin Nozuka was born in New York and grew up in Toronto, Raised by a single mother, Justin was the sixth of seven children, where all four of his brothers are artists in some form.

Nozuka’s debut album is titled Holly after his mother (awww…) and this introduction to his long career to come will keep you eager for more.
