He gained international press and Independent airplay across the US culminating in two top ten hits in the CMJ charts. His songs have featured in such movies as Chris Nolan’s ‘Memento’ and many American network tv series’.
Justin aka Monc writes, arranges, records and produces all of his own work. He uses many hand-built instruments from around the world paired with cutting edge production tools. He is equally at home recording with a full orchestra and choir as he is with a bed frame(!) He loves to work with musicians from across many cultures. Justin is classically trained but grew up gigging and recording with his band.
