Like a dry creek reveals stones tossed with a wish or without a care some long afternoon, Justin Mathews music uncovers the worn and beautiful moments of a pilgrim''s life. 

With well crafted songs and singable melodies, Justin''s music will pull at your voice like a southern Gospel anthem begging you to join in.   With the indisputable depth of folk and the energy and warmth of roots-rock Justin Mathews may be just what you''ve been listening for.

A twenty-something-year-old singer-songwriter from Kansas City, Justin is no stranger to the music scene. After signing a publishing contract with Sea-Chest Publishing, Justin moved to Nashville, TN at 18 with the band Many Waters. They toured all over the United States playing 100+ shows to packed audiences from 1996- 1997 . With that exposure, Justin was offered a production contract as a solo artist. He signed with RadioStatic Productions, then a subsidiary of Gotee Records, and began recording his debut solo record (titled "Many Waters") under the name Fuzzy Mathews. The record has subsequently been re-released by Justin under his real name and the title powder for the shot.

As soon as the record was pressed Justin took his songs and old Taylor acoustic guitar on the road again as the opening act for the Curious Fools summer tour in 1998. Justin''s music was then featured on the Ricochet Magazine RIM compilation with the likes of Moby, Bill Malonee and Vigilantees of Love and he played the North by Northeast music conference in Toronto Canada; all was moving full steam ahead.

But after 3 years of solid touring and recording, pursuing his life-long passion, Justin still seemed restless. When Justin''s spiritual pilgrimage lead him to become an Orthodox Christian, he decided to take a hiatus from his art. He attended Belmont University graduating with a degree in business and audio engineering. Soon Justin was offered a position as the vice president of communications for the Nashville Rescue Mission, a Christian homeless shelter. The hiatus that was intended to be brief turned into four years of intense personal growth.

With a fresh sound and renewed commitment, Justin went back into the studio in 2002 and recorded two new songs and together with three songs from powder for the shot, he released an ep titled Courage (is a weapon we must use).

Many of the people he met while working at the Nashville Rescue Mission and his religious life found their way into his writing. Justin''s song "See Paradise" was featured on the Cross Culture Project, a landmark collection of songs by Orthodox Christians in America - currently a top-selling record at https://www.tradebit.com and https://www.tradebit.com.

Justin has also recently released a full-length disc entitled "Confessing Between the Lines", described by Peter Jon Gillquist as "one of the best folk albums produced by an Orthodox Christian in our time".

Justin is now also a first year seminarian at St. Vladimir''s Orthodox Theological Seminary residing with his wife, Jodi, and sons, Elias and Asher, in New York.

Justin is available for concerts nationally. For more information please visit https://www.tradebit.com or email him at [email protected]://www.tradebit.com
