          Justin Maki is a “Flirtatious Jazz-Pop” artist out of London, ON. He is the FCLMA’s 2021 “Pop Artist of the Year” and 2022 "Contemporary Singer-Songwriter of the Year". Japan born and Canada bred, Justin’s music carefully draws influence from R&B, Soul, Funk, and Jazz and packages it in an accessible Pop format: imagine blending Allen Stone, John Mayer, Bruno Mars, and Robin Thicke. Justin aims to inspire joy through music by curating a memorable musical experience.

           Justin has played over 1,000 gigs from Halifax, to Prince George, to Mexico and has shared the stage with The Sheepdogs, Measha Brueggergosman, Neon Dreams, and Olivia Lunny. From bars to concert halls, backyard parties, weddings, and festivals, Justin has been entertaining 100,000s for the last 18 years. He has worked with such accomplished producers as, Matthew Johnston (produced Shad and Chad Price) and Mark Howard (produced Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, U2, and Neil Young) and has also won Western University’s Battle of the Bands in 2015, as well as Western Voice in 2016.

Justin’s latest release is his debut album, "New Flame" (June 2022). This is a diverse concept album that traverses the different stages of a romantic relationship from first spark to last billow of smoke. Justin also co-produced, co-wrote, and performed on the new Patrick & Daniels’ record that just came out in January 2023 - “Good Vibes LP”, a record that has been all the rage in the HRM as of late. Otherwise, traveling has been Justin’s focus in the first quarter of 2023 - Mexico to Halifax, Nashville to LA, and soon, Amsterdam.
