ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Justin King has dramatically reshaped and extended the language of the acoustic guitar, introducing his own unique and outstanding techniques. With the intensity and passion with which he plays, Justin brings a quality to the music that is far beyond just his mastery of a dizzying variety of forms.

After being signed then released from Epic records, Justin King and his band went back to Justin's Blackberry Hill Studios in Eugene, OR and recorded the 5 songs on Fall/Rise entirely on their own. Justin produced, engineered, and mixed the record, in addition to writing, playing and singing on it. Dynamic in range, density, and texture, the EP features everything from driving rock to electronic drum programming to solo acoustic performances, all enhanced by a strong melodic sense.

In addition to the 5 songs with the band, this enhanced CD features a video of Justin performing one of his virtuoso solo acoustic guitar pieces, this one on a custom-made doubleneck acoustic.

The band plans to tour extensively in 2007, both in support of this EP and in support of their full length which will be released independently sometime in late spring.

What press has to say?
"One part guitar virtuoso and one part nascent pop star, Justin King visits from Oregon to rock out on his acoustic guitar and tap on some wicked riffs."
- San Francisco Bay Guardian

“Justin King’s songs are layer-after-layer of musical savvy soaking with sophistication, it is no wonder that each show amasses a collection of wobbly-kneed, speechless, star-struck fans." - Feb 2007, Hotel Cafe in LA, show review, www.lataco.com/taco/justin-king-live-hotel-cafe-hollywood

"I must have caught Justin King early in his career. If he doesn’t rise any higher in the music industry, it means the system is so broken it can no longer recognize real talent--or maybe Justin King is just happy where he is. Certainly, he has everything a singer-songwriter hack like John Mayer has, the difference being King’s startling technicality. Forgive me for being coarse, but this guy can play guitar like a motherfucker. He has an odd style, combining finger picking, slap-and-pop, tapping, and even frailing to dynamic effect. I don’t know if other people play guitar like this, but if they do, I want to know their names."
-Praetorian for http://acquired.trivialbeing.net

Can't Wait for the Full Length Album
Every song on this album has great hooks and melodies, and there are some re-recorded editions in here such as "Nowhere Fast", and "On Our Sleeves" which sounds amazing. If your a Justin King fan there is no reason not to pick this up, and if your new to Justin King then this makes a great introduction.

where has this cd been all my life!!!!!!!!
I think I have found the best thing since sliced bread.......... and that is definitely Justin King and his band. I first picked up Le Bleu (Justin's solo acoustic album) and was blown away at his ability as a guitar virtuoso, but I was blown away to hear how amazing he is as a singer-songwriter!! His band is fantastic, and they complete the perfect music experience.

The CD was amazing. The lyrics were one of a kind, very inspirational, very powerful. The music just gets me pumped i dunno why tho. The only problem with the Cd was that there werent enough songs....i need more!

'Bout Time something new happened
Get this one folks. In a time of samples, remade oldies, and EMO music, it is refreshing to see an album by a new artist that is good enough to deserve radio play. We're at the beginning of something big and this album will be a rarity when the full album is released and this band is fully realized to be the talent that it is.

Very nice album! Great guitar and vocals!
The one question is: why there is only five songs?

Anyway it's a good work of Justin and his band.
