Justin Maki is a London, ON based Pop/Easy-Listening artist, singer, guitarist, and songwriter. Justin is a thoughtful, yet scatter-brained, silly man with a Japanese upbringing. His music organically balances approximations to Allen Stone, Bruno Mars, and John Mayer.
Since officially committing to his solo career in 2012, Justin has played over 1,000 shows, released 2 EPs (“The Acoustic Diaries: Fight” and “Long Time Coming”), and has gone on 3 Cross Canada Tours, spanning Moncton to Regina. He has also competed in several competitions and won in Western University’s Battle of the Bands in 2015, as well as the campus wide Western Voice competition in 2016. Justin has shared the (sometimes virtual) stage with industry heavy-weights like Monster Truck, The Sheepdogs, Neon Dreams, and Olivia Lunny.
Finally, Justin has performed at such notable events and venues as Canadian Music Week (Toronto, 2010), Summer Sunset Sounds (Grand Bend, 2019), Peak To Shore (Collingwood, 2019), Ontario Contact (Saint Catherines, 2019), and Budweiser Brew Gardens (London, 2020).
