What to Expect
From the start, Justin promises not just professionalism, but offers a warm, open vibe that will show that he can be serious but also has no problem entertaining and pulling in his audience.
Justin "JJ" Steele originally from Queens, NY is 25 years old singer/songwriter/pianist. With the love for R&B/Jazz and Soul, he loves to bring back the feel of the "old good R&B and Jazz" music. Artist such as Justin Timberlake, Musiq Soulchild, Michael Jackson, Jill Scott; he feels that its time for the old generation to be re-recognized and brought back.
With a BA in Music Performance from Five Towns College, and soon to pursue a MA in Music Ed, Justin grew the biggest love for the stage and plans on inspiring and teaching others to grow a love just as big as his.
Some of his background includes Jazz Shows, Musical Theater shows and even small showcases around the NYC area. He has performed at tributes for Jazz artist Arthur Prysock and other Great American Songbook shows. Some of his theater credits include Memphis (Bobby), Dreamgirls (Tiny Joe Dixon) and The Wiz (Tinman).
Currently Justin is working on a couple of original songs in hopes of the succession of a mixtape. But his major dream is to move down South to pursue a career as a music teacher as well as a Jazz Singer in local Cabarets and etc.
