about the artist

JUSTIS KAO Singer | Songwriter | Pianist | Arranger | Producer | Best Male Singer/Songwriter for the 2006 Los Angeles Music Awards Justis Kao blends the sounds of Pop, R&B, Gospel, Jazz and Funk to create music that inspires the soul. He was most recently nominated for the 2008 Orange County Music Awards for Best R&B! Justis is currently working on writing for his full-length debut album due out later this year. "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 singer and songwriter, I hope that my voice and music might be able to encourage others to live life full of dreams and passion that would inspire this generation." 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 but influenced by the sounds of Gospel, Jazz and Rhythm & Blues, Justis' music has been likened to the sounds of Brian McKnight, Stevie Wonder, and Babyface. In January 2008, Justis was invited to sing at the New Baptist Covenant Celebration held at the Georgia World Congress Center with President Jimmy Carter & President Bill Clinton. Justis Live at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center, Long Beach, California (December 2006)
