A short history: Justin Trawick was born on January 22nd, 1982 in Leesburg, VA. In eighth grade he discovered his father’s guitar under the stairs of his old house, in college he wrote songs for a band called “Woodburn Road” (he didn’t sing though because his girlfriend at the time said he had a bad voice), and in 2005 Justin started playing open mics around the Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland area. Thus ends the history lesson.
Now 2008, Justin and his live band the “Justin Trawick Group” have opened for such artists as Bob Schneider, Brett Dennen, Sara Bareilles, Pat Green, Tyrone Wells, Edwin McCain, Ingram Hill, Corey Harris, Robinella, Cowboy Mouth, Jimmies Chicken Shack, and even the Ying Yang Twins. He won the “Emerging Artist Competition” at the 2006 Takoma Park Folk Festival, has gone on several East Coast tours, and performed at almost all the major area venues including the 930 Club three times and the Kennedy Center twice. Finally, on May 10, 2008, Justin will be releasing his second full length album, “Justin Trawick Live At IOTA” which is a live album recorded on January 4th, 2008 at IOTA Club and Cafe in Arlington, VA, where Justin now calls home.
