Justin Karpinos is singer/songwriter currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, and a native of Chapel Hill, NC. Justin is an established sideman and has contributed guitar, mandolin, and vocals for several area bands and artists, including 60 Cycle Hum, Zammarin, and Brad Passons.
Flyover, Justins debut album, was recorded and mixed in both Nashville, TN with producer Marc Lacuesta (recording credits include Allison Krauss, Neil Young, Sara Evans, and Jars of Clay), and in Greensboro, NC with producer Mike Garrigan (founder of the critically-acclaimed band Collapsis).
Flyover features tightly-crafted songs that emphasize his melodic sensibilities, compelling lyrics, and tasteful guitar work. Justins clear, strong voice is reminiscent of James Taylor and Paul Simon. The arrangements and instrumentation explore more modern pop/rock styles, similar to Augustana and Jump, Little Children.
The record has garnered attention and praise from, most notably, Grammy Award-winning songwriter Marcus Hummon.
