He did anything but that.

Singer and songwriter Justin Angelo has surrounded himself with good musicians, and that makes him bring his best to the group.

"I feel like I'm surrounded by musicians who are musically much better than myself. And that brings my all to it. Because I'm not just trying to do this for me. I'm doing this for the collective of what we're trying to achieve here."

The collective is known as the Justin Angelo Band. And Justin, along with drummer Dustin Love, Bassist Brenden Stengle and keyboardist Aaron Trasatt, were all on point when they played some songs in our studio recently.

Our 10 Most Memorable Acts from LAUNCH Music Conference & Festival 2017

Pennsylvania native singer-songwriter Justin Angelo radiates positive vibes. With only a guitar, his voice, and vocalizer, his music fills the air. While playing in the Penn Square Grill at the LAUNCH Music Conference, a fire alarm went off and everyone had to evacuate. This did not stop anyone from returning to hear the rest of his set when the fire department gave the blessing to go back in. From there Angelo used the opportunity to rearrange his set list to include his songs one of which included the lyric "the show must go on" and "On Fire."

Testimonials

 

 

Lou Plaia Founder of Reverbnation

"Justin writes stories within in his songs and even on your 1st listen you find yourself visualizing yourself in the story. That compounded with his great guitar playing and live show, always leaves me wanting more. If you are a John Butler Trio fan like I am, you will love this guy!"
 

Deborah "Zuke" Smith of Zuketunes.com

"Justin’s passion about music and life is palpable! When I met him 2 years ago while speaking at LAUNCH, he held his phone to my ear so I would listen to his music. I knew there was something brewing in this kid. This year when I was at LAUNCH, I was running from artist to artist but stopped dead in my tracks when I heard a great voice singing with a funk groove - it was Justin!! Needless to say, I now check out everything Justin posts online  - and you should too! "
