Recipient for Country Artist of the Year – 20th Annual LA Music Awards
Nominated for Country Album of the Year – 20th Annual LA Music Awards “Justin Foutz”
Justin Foutz is a 28-year-old singer, songwriter and guitar player born in Indianapolis, Indiana. At 10 years old, Justin picked up a Kay guitar and began to learn his favorite song, Richie Valens-“La Bamba”. Natural talent and persistence paid off and by the age of 12, he got to perform “Hotel California” by the Eagles with John Mellencamp’s band at a private party for the Indianapolis Colts owner, Jim Irsay. From the age 15-17, Justin switched to drums and joined up with a local band, Green Bean Transplant from Indiana. Although the drumming position was fun, he was coming to grips at the young age of 16, that he wanted to be front and center.
In 2002, Justin went to Southern California to vacation with his father. While on vacation, Justin found himself bored with the summer sun. To take his mind off his boredom, he put a band together to play some local gigs. The search for California musicians with the same influences, such as Travis Tritt, Keith Urban, Little River Band, Brad Paisley and Stevie Ray Vaughan came very easily. To this day Justin still loves to play and is working with great musicians to bring you the country music you love to hear.
