Justin Roth

Justin Roth is a nationally touring indie-folk singer/songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist. Combining brilliantly inventive guitar technique with effects pedals and altered tunings, Roth delivers stunning instrumentals, as well as smooth vocals, on top of this intricate and lush soundscape. His guitar playing has earned him shared stages with some of the greatest fingerstyle players of today, such as Tommy Emmanuel and Andy McKee. He has also toured with John Gorka and David Wilcox, as well as opened for some of folk music's finest singer/songwriters, including Shawn Colvin, Martin Sexton, Darrell Scott, and Willy Porter. Roth's fan-funded fourth solo album, Now You Know, was voted as one of the Top 100 Folk Albums of 2011. "Fans of Leo Kottke or Michael Hedges will find themselves right at home with [Roth's] intricate guitar work...beautifully written lyrics." - San Francisco Art Magazine
