Justin Plets blend of Adult Contemporary Pop has a distinctly Canadian feel. His influences range from Jim Cuddy, to David Gray, to Bruce Springsteen, to Pilate and Radiohead. This diverse collection of inspiration ads to his unique take on the genre.
His smooth heartfelt vocals carry his direct and emotive lyrics about love, loss, and life with a socially aware perspective. Justin draws candidly from what's going on in the world around him - and it’s clear he is an old soul. This enables him to not only see to the heart of the matter, he also has the song writing talents to present it in a way that has captivated audiences around Ontario.
Justin is a truly organic artist who believes in the rawness of the live show. He was aptly awarded for this in January 2012 when he earned the opportunity to record 2 of his own tracks at the renowned EMAC Studios in London, ON thanks to his winning of a Blackburn Radio contest for a cover of Bruce Springsteens "Thunder Road." With a People's Choice Award at the International Food Festival, as well as a nomination for "Fan Favourite" at the Jack Richardson Music Awards, Justin is showing that he can hold his own as part of the indie scene. With a busy performance schedule throughout the past few years, Justin Plet continues to win over fans at intimate club gigs and as an opening act at big summer festivals such as New Music Fest and CMW.
With his upcoming album Cedar Creek Road, (Single currently avail on Noisetrade!!) Justin will continue to carve out his place among Canada's great singer/songwriters.
