Homegrown Montrealer, Justin Saladino leads a guitar-driven blues/rock group. The Justin Saladino Band has two all-original releases under their belt: “No Worries” (2016) and “A Fool’s Heart” (2018). The compositions are inspired by a colourful palette of genres and artists, moving effortlessly from smooth R&B textures to wailing blues riffs. On stage, JSB has wowed audiences at the ‘Montreal International Jazz Festival,’ ‘Tremblant International Blues Festival,’ ‘Rogers Cup,’ ‘Trois-Rivières en Blues’ and the ‘Toronto Blues Summit.’ In 2018, the 21st annual “Maple Blues Awards” nominated the group for “New Artist of the Year.” As representatives for Québec, the group will be competing in the 2019 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN.
