About You (optional)

From Tennessee to Texas to New York, 3x Grammy Award-winning Justin Stanton has allowed the infinite opportunities found in the world of music to lead him across the globe.

As a trumpet player, keyboardist, and composer, Justin has developed a reputation as a multi-faceted musician who can serve an essential role to whichever artist he is contributing, both onstage and in the studio.

While at the prestigious University of North Texas, where he performed for two years in the One O’Clock Lab Band, Justin joined Snarky Puppy that, since its humble beginnings, has gone on to earn three GRAMMY Awards.

Justin has performed and recorded with the group since 2006, appearing on the majority of their numerous studio and live recordings.

Justin appears on recordings with artists as diverse as David Crosby, Donald Fagen, Harry Shearer/Derek Smalls, Larry Carlton, Randy Brecker, Robert Glasper, Trombone Shorty, Musiq Soulchild, Kirk Franklin, Laura Mvula, Becca Stevens, and Salif Keita.

He has also shared the stage with Joe Walsh, Michael McDonald, Toto, Derek Trucks, Terence Blanchard, Chris Potter, Eric Harland, and Fatoumata Diawara, to name a few.

Justin resides in Brooklyn, New York, and is in constant demand for his ability as a multi-instrumentalist, knowledge of synthesis and sound design, familiarity with a broad spectrum of musical realms, and abundant creative energy.

In spring of 2019, Justin released Secret Place, his long-awaited debut solo record of all new original material, and in June of this year, he released an adaptation of Flor Peeters’s 35 Miniatures for Organ for synthesizers.
