Twenty-four-year-old artist Justis Kao blends the sounds of pop, R&B, Gospel, Jazz and Funk to create music that inspires the soul. He is a winner of The Upper Room Recording Studio’s Bandsearch 2000 soloist category, a two-time winner in the God’s Gift Music songwriting competition, winner of the 2004 Waterwind Songwriting Competition, a finalist in the John Lennon Scholarship Contest and a recipient of Berklee’s World Scholarship.
With the release of his third EP, "ACOUSTICALLY ME", Justis brings his songs in an acoustic medium, raw with emotional from his own experiences.
"I write because I want to express through music what I often don’t know how to say. Music is the one thing that transcends all racial, ethnic, cultural and language barriers. As a songwriter, I hope that my music might be able to encourage and inspire others."
Originally from Toronto, Canada, Justis graduated with a degree in Contemporary Writing & Production from Berklee College of Music in Boston. Trained as a classical pianist, Justis has been performing since the age of six in various showcases and competitions in Toronto. Having produced two albums and various live concerts in Toronto, Montreal, Boston, San Francisco, Minneapolis, South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique, Justis is now taking on a new challenge: Los Angeles, California. Justis has since produced several concerts in the Los Angeles area.
"In the novice opinion, a Jamiroquai and Fiona Apple hybrid birthed in an R&B, Funk and Jazz hospital, with a re-definement of the word smooth." Storyline Records
"Justis Kao’s charismatic singing voice grabs me from the first note. His compositions evoke feelings of Stevie Wonder and classic R&B. He’s a winner for me!
Bob Katz, Mastering Engineer for the 2003 Invisible album
"Justis Kao is a wonderful musician who has multi-faceted skills: he’s a fine vocalist, songwriter and a keyboardist who creates intricate figures and interesting harmonies that compliment his silky, mellifluous voice"
