We had the good fortune of connecting with Justin Tipton and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Justin, what do you want your legacy to be?
I want my legacy to be that I made quality, timeless, honest music that related and helped people. I want people to remember that I did what I did during my career for the right reasons. I’ve never written or performed music for the sake of popularity/money/fame. The mission has always been to create/perform music that spoke to me.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Right now, I’m excited about our newest album that we just finished tracking. I’m not sure when it’ll come out but it’s sounding the way I’ve always wanted it to.

I got to where I am today by the help of various people along the way. There are many people who have helped me with various things, whether it be advice, steering me in the right direction, artistic guidance, etc.

Was it easy? Haha, I don’t know. There are challenges in any career, but it’s always easier to handle when you know you’re doing what you were put on this Earth to do. I’ve never really thought about it as easy vs. difficult. I’ve just always tried to progress day by day.

What do I want the world to know about us? I’m not sure. Come catch a show, world. That’d be good enough for me.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If I had friends visiting the area, I’d take them to my favorite spot for dinner: Bowen House. And then we’d probably catch a Kirk Holloway or Roomsounds show, and then visit my favorite bartender Jacky at Ships Lounge to end the night.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
“It takes a village” – so I’d like to dedicate my shoutout to my “village”. The fans are what keep us in business, the venues, the band, studio producer, booking agents, my family…they’re all an integral part of what keeps me and my band afloat.
