Justin Bernasconi is a rarity among guitarists and songwriters. Straddling styles and sounds from the Delta Blues, Appalachian Bluegrass, English Folk and all stops in between, his highly original tunes, are infused with exciting and soulful guitar playing.
In 2014, he released his solo debut album ‘Winter Pick’, demonstrating his love of British and American folk guitar styles, and featuring stories from his childhood in Cambridgeshire. Produced by ARIA award-winning Jeff Lang, the album was described by Australian Guitar Magazine as “a dexterous display of picking that does a stellar job of treading the fine line between guitar showboating and tasteful melodies”.
His forthcoming album Barefoot Wonderland is due for release in mid 2017.
