Justin Roth is a nationally touring singer/songwriter and fingerstyle acoustic guitarist who combines an artful blend of indie/alt folk laid on a bed of brilliantly inventive guitar technique. His innovative use of alternate tunings, partial capos and two-hand tapping techniques has been described as ‘more than just an instrument, but an extension of himself.’ He has toured with John Gorka and David Wilcox, and opened for some of the finest singer/songwriters, including Shawn Colvin, Martin Sexton, and Darrell Scott. His guitar playing has earned him shared stages with some of the greatest fingerstyle players of today, such as Tommy Emmanuel, Andy McKee, and Pat Donohue. Roth’s fan-funded fourth solo album, Now You Know, was voted as one of the Top 100 Folk Albums of 2011.
“Fans of Leo Kottke or Michael Hedges will find themselves right at home with [Roth’s] intricate guitar work…beautifully written lyrics.” – San Francisco Art Magazine
