Heading into what is already proving to be a busy 2019, Justin Hogg is thrilled to release his brand new single “Suntans & Beer Cans”. The Alberta native from the small town of Morinville is piggy-backing on the success of his three earlier singles, all of which received nation-wide radio airplay for Justin, introducing him to listeners across Canada. With each release building off of the previous, his last single “Just Drive” has proven his most successful to date reaching chart status. For this new single (written solely by Justin), he again partnered with Johnny Gasparic at the CCMA award-winning MCC Recording Studios in Calgary.
Having journeyed through various musical styles over the years from rock to acoustic indie, Justin has truly found his roots in the country music scene. Drawing on influences like Keith Urban and Hunter Hayes, his style is a blend of country, rock, and pop music with his own twist of originality. His style and talent resulted in over 75 performances and two CCMA showcases in 2018, including proudly representing Alberta as part of the ACMA contingent in Hamilton. Additionally, Justin earned a coveted spot in the line up at the 2018 ACMA “Fanfest” event held during the ACMA Awards weekend, building off of his 2017 nod from the Alberta Country Music Awards, for “Smoke Signals” for song of the year.
