#11 Justin Nozuka: Musician and poet extraordinaire

My guest for this episode is the iconic Justin Nozuka; professional musician, songwriter, and come to find out, runner at heart.

Born in New York but based out of Toronto, Canada these days, Justin got an early start to his music career in his pre-teen years and has had unmistakable successes ever since.

From his first album titled, Holly, to his latest release “then, now, & again”, Justin has made some of the most passionate and heartfelt music that’s rightfully earned him spots on David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel as well as multiple awards.

We talk about the emotions that go into his work and the trajectory his career has taken until now and I think his authenticity really shines through in this.

I’ve been a genuine fan of Justin’s ever since I first heard “After tonight” and being able to talk with him for this episode was nothing short of a dream come true. The guy couldn’t be humbler and more personable, and I know I say this in almost every episode but the conversation just flew by.

You definitely need to check out his work and get a sense of how timeless and beautiful his music is for yourself.
