Let’s all celebrate as Justine shares her newest masterpiece “So Far…”. She blew us all away during her Noorish debut earlier this month so we are all very excited to have her back playing the songs from her new album. Also on the bill this night is special guest Joal Kamps playing some rocky-mountain folk-pop to get the night going!

Edmonton based singer-songwriter Justine Vandergrift has been singing and creating music her entire life. Growing up with musical influences ranging from country-folk to gospel and blues, Justine’s songwriting results in a vast array of genres and styles. Her witty and insightful lyrics coupled with her passionate one-of-a-kind voice make Justine stand out long after any performance.
In 2011, Vandergrift released her full album ‘Yes Alright Ok’. It has been getting excellent reviews and airtime on CBC Radio, CKUA, and other Canadian stations. The album continues to generate local and international interest. Recently Justine has been in the studio working on her sophomore album, “So Far…” which we be released first in Edmonton on June 22, 2012.
Besides touring Western Canada as a musician, Justine has worked on development projects in Kenya and Honduras, has worked with adults with developmental disabilities in Red Deer and coordinated programs at the social justice center at Kings University. These experiences along with every daily interaction continue to inspire and influence the music Justine writes.
“Occasionally a new artist emerges that immediately demands respect and attention. Justine Vandergrift is one such artist.”
–Bill Bourne (JUNO Award Winning Canadian Folk Legend)
“Justine’s songs are all so beautifully crafted. So much music today feels lazy. But these songs are so thoughtful and clear and perfect. Crafted without being constrained. Each song is like a beautifully wrapped gift.”
–Tad Hargrave (Founder of marketingforhippies.com)
