Unsurprisingly my name is Justin and this is my blog. I am 27 and a keen artist and musician and my creativity comes from my mum who is a club singer and entertainer of forty years. I play the piano and guitar and am the lead signer in a band called Whiskey Straight.
The band is pretty cool and we got most weekends which makes a small second income but I mainly do it for the love of it. We play soft rock and a bit of indie music and as well as covers we do a bit of our our stuff which always go down well with our small but loyal fan base.
When I am not gigging I like to take pictures mainly around music but I do some landscapes and portrait work as well. It more of a hobby than anything else and as my main topic is music I do mix my love of seeing live bands play with this hobby.
I have a great girlfriend who loves the same things I do and she is a pretty decent backing singer for us every so often. She does not enjoy it as much as us though so takes a bit of persuading to get up and do a gig with us. She is one of our biggest fans though and she and her mates are often in the front row cheering and screaming us on.
We have a little puppy Jimi named after Hendrix and he takes up the rest of our free time. He’s a loveable little thing but if he chews another of my trainers I may do something I regret! hopefully its a short term phase although he generally gets away with murder as you can’t stay mad at him for long.
Hopefully I won’t bore you too much with my blog and I hope you come back soon.
