Justin Mazer

Guitarist

“Justin Mazer is a man in motion. He is constantly learning, evolving, and changing his approach to his guitar. Since he was a kid, he’s had the discipline of a bluegrass virtuoso coupled with the musical appetite of a college radio DJ. I have played music with him for the better part of 10 years, and can best describe him as a piece of my brain that I have removed, formed into a ruggedly handsome man-child, and handed a telecaster. He is with you every step of the way, sometimes making it hard to hear where your playing ends and his begins, but always making it better. And while his musical ability is top tier, I believe he is best described as a worthy road companion who appreciates a good gas station, a well packed van, and, on the precipice of a long journey, a solid egg and cheese sandwich.”

-Jason Gallagher
