The smile on dad and daughter's faces was priceless!

June is proving to be a BIG month for Justin!

Justin will be judging at the finals of the C Factor on 16 August. (See HOME page for more details about this special album and where to buy it.)

Justin is also finishing off an EP, titled Red Light. It is being recorded in Hervey Bay (Qld) and Nashville (USA), with Pacific International Music's producer and Bobkatz star, Rob Mackay. It features a cover of the Stan Coster/Slim dusty classic, Return of the Stockman, and 4 new original songs: Red Light, Nora Goodhelp, Hard Easy and Little Ronnie's Ghost (see DISCOGRAPHY page).

...and if that wasn't enough, Justin has been writing furiously ahead of the start of production of his next studio album, Hold On To Me. "There was such an overwhelming response to when we first released the sponsorship program," Justin said. "After the initial rush, we almost reach 3 quarters of our $20,000 sponsorhip target. While I've been writing and producing it's been hard to promote the program, but I start performing again in July and I'll be able to promote the program again. As soon as we reach that $20,000 target I'll be back in the studio."

"I can't believe that only a few months ago I came so close to giving it all away. If it weren't for my many supporters I would have. And it's my supporters who are enabling me to keep making and performing my music. I have achieved so much in the last 18 months, but you know what...? I'm only just warming up."
