I knew him back in the 1990’s. We met through our mutual friend, Scotty Melton. I saw him again just a few years ago as he was a performer on the Cayamo cruise and I was a fan. He remembered me right away from across the room even though it had been m… See More

This is absolutely heartbreaking. Sending so much love and light to the loved ones of such a great soul.

I got to see him a few times. I have a picture of my Granddaughter and him from a concert he did in Louisville, Ky. She loved him too. She hollered for him and he came right over and talked to her and took a picture with her. What a super guy!

Christopher Weiss wrote 
I was fortunate enough to meet him in person in Portland Oregon – was there for a conference – he was there in the midst of a break up and a new album – which I love and speaks to his efforts to better this world. To soon- to soon we need more singer songwriters with his sort of social consciousness.

So sad, I saw him a few times when he came to Australia. This was at Bluesfest in 2015

I was lucky enough to do an “in the round” show with JTE, Stephen Simmons, and others at a festival back in 2006. Mid song, the bridge cracked on my old Gibson; Justin immediately offered me his mastercraft Epiphone and we traded it back and forth for the rest of the set. Harlem River Blues is one of my favorite songs, as is Far Away in Another Town. Excellent songwriter, sweet guy. Such a goddamn shame.

Spencer Terrel wrote 
Gobsmacked!!! No words. RIP and thank you for sharing your music with the world. You were and will be one of the best American songwriters that have graced all of us. Our hearts go out to all of the family and friends. 2020 is a cruel year.

Matt Campbell wrote 
I am frozen by the news. We JUST saw him this spring in Asheville… he was ‘off the hook’ that night. Talked about an exciting future as a music instructor at some prestigious schools. An incredibly intelligent, articulate and outspoken artist with a ‘freight-train’ style of powerfull plucking on a 6-string, I enjoyed his music and the 4-5 concerts we saw. I did not see this coming.

Lee Calvin Eichelberger wrote 
I had the great pleasure of opening for him earlier this year. He was an amazing person and performer, and will be greatly missed

Peggy Shanks wrote 
I’m so sorry to hear this. I discovered his music after the death of my husband. Many dark days were made brighter because of him. My deepest condolences to his family, friends and fans .

Michelle Flammia Stuart wrote 
Your music brought much peace to my colicky baby. There was something about the beat and the vocals that soothed him. It was the only thing that ever worked. Rest In Peace. Condolences to the family .

Sal Blàndinò wrote 
Justin, I can’t put into words how much you and your music means to me. Every time I saw you live you made me cry with your beautiful lyrics and songs. Your albums have and continue to help me through so many difficult times in my life. On many a lonel… See More

Oh no… saw him more than a decade ago at a small town in Virginia… traveling alone, getting his gear out the back of a small van. He was shy, brilliant, talented. Condolences to all who will miss him.

Julian Tovey wrote 
He was a regular visitor to Australia and we loved him. I never missed a tour, and each show was always great. Such an amazing talent who has left behind a fantastic body of work. Condolences to his family and friends.

Renee Strnad wrote 
To his close family and friends – I wish you many fond memories of the man you loved deeply.
Some of the best musical road trips ended listening to JTE. I will carry his music and memories of those trips with me.

Cindy Kaye Gentry Baker wrote 
I was one of Justin’s teachers at BH and we connected. He was one of my favorite students and I literally cried when he left BH. I have followed his career and have always been impressed with the man he became. He will always have a special place in my heart and I am so heartbroken for all his loved ones.

I am completely heartbroken. I think about him often and honestly think to myself as a lonely single mother, 2000 miles from “home”, “if Justin made it through, I can too” and now he’s gone. I’ll never forget the night he and I locked eyes in Nashville. I was by far the youngest fan in the front row. I didn’t actually know I’d be front row but I’ll never forget it. His words guided me. His influence helped me keep going. You will be missed Justin.

Spencer Valentine wrote 
I am saddened. he played my tavern in Indianapolis 5 or 6 times and I was just super impressed with his talent. When I saw him perform again in Bloomington years later he seemed a less tortured soul those days and I congratulated him on that. He gave all credit to his new bride. It is ironic for me that he passed this week. My mother died a week ago tonight and as I laid my head on her shoulder and held her hand the only song that came to mind was ” My Mother’s Eyes.” He was a skilled poet who could cut to the emotion in few simple words. Be at peace Justin.
