Born in Mobile, Alabama in 1983, Justin Rivers grew up just a few miles north, in the small country town of Fairford.
As he recounts, “From the time I was big enough to walk I’ve had an instrument in my hands.”
Justin’s talents were first recognized at the age of 5 when he became the drummer for his parents’ church. This started his journey to becoming a skilled multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and performer.
From the moment he started traveling with a band at the age of 11, Justin knew he wanted to have a career in music. He has had the opportunity to work on stages from churches to arenas before moving to Nashville, TN, in late 2006 to help start the band, Austins Bridge. Justin has worked with the likes of Dan Huff (renowned producer) and Jay Demarcus (of Rascal Flatts).
When asked about Justin, Demarcus said, “Rarely does an artist come along that is so gifted, genuine and extremely talented.”
Though his musical career is still in the infancy stages, Justin says he feels blessed for having won a Dove Award and being nominated for a Grammy in 2011.
From his deep roots in the church, and having grown up on a horse farm, Justin’s sound is definitely country, but with a soulful expression that can be felt when you hear him sing. Justin loves serving in the local church and feels it’s one of the greatest callings placed on his life.
