Singer Songwriter Justin Frew
Born from a love of honky-tonk, delta blues, cowboy psychedelia, rockabilly western swing and all the early incarnations that were the sullied parents of rock & roll, Justin Frew lives the music he loves. Punk rock in attitude. Wild west in nature. Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer. A man who wears many hats well.
Songs of loss, redemption and all the scary places in between. Late nights, early mornings. All that happens between the first drink and the last. The moments that can make you or break you. Love earned, love spurned. Clarity and regret. Life, brutal yet beautiful. There is nothing staid or reverential about his songs. Those influences all collide and become something unique. Drawn lovingly from the past but reimagined in a dark, sinister modern country blues. All delivered in a world-weary baritone.
Over the last 30 years Justin has played with, and shared stages with some of the finest musicians in Australia. He sings about those dark moments where humour hides. Laughing at our frailties and follies. Justin Frew knows those places well, and will take you back there. And hopefully, out the other side.
