Nick Luscombe talks to new talent Justin Nozuka about his brand new album â€œHollyâ€.
Only eighteen years old, singer songwriter Justin Nozuka is tipped to be a huge success this year when he releases his debut album.
Justin was born in New York, but moved to Canada at the age of eight following his parentsâ€™ divorce. From there he was sent to an international boarding school where he learnt to play the guitar and started developing his songwriting craft.
Justin made his first tentative steps into the music industry at a four-day songwriting workshop in 2005. Following that event he was introduced to a few influential players in the Canadian music business. An A & R executive from Universal Music in Canada, was in the audience at Justin’s first ever solo show, and offered to fund some demos. These recordings eventually led to the development of Justinâ€™s first album.
