New music: Justin Nellis puts piano front and center on “Songs From The Street”


Justin Nellis is that rare singer/songwriter with a piano under is arm. Based in Minneapolis, MN, he brings his jazz improv roots to bear on every track, accentuating his lyrics with rich, jazz-influenced changes that move his compositions way beyond the typical 3-chord-verse-chorus-verse-chorus structure. While comparisons to other piano playing songwriters are inevitable, Justin has a style, and way with words, that is all his own. If you’re a fan of piano-driven pop/jazz fusion, you won’t be disappointed. Available here.

The last cut on the album is a wonderful, upbeat reinterpretation of Beyonce’s “Halo”. Check out the live acoustic version from Beyonce for comparison.

You can connect with Justin and stream Songs From The Street on MySpace, SoundCloud, Facebook and ReverbNation.

  2. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had
    to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
