Justin Donovan

7-String Guitarist - Singer - Composer

To look for hidden band members when you first hear Justin Donovan is a natural reaction: he emanates a huge sound on his own. Justin simultaneously plays bass and guitar parts on a seven-string guitar (three bass and four guitar) using a technique he has learned from guitar master Charlie Hunter. With the addition of his soul-inspired vocals, he has most band parts covered right off the bat.

Originally from Denver, Colorado, Justin now finds himself home in New Orleans, Louisiana where you can find him performing at venues across town. Playing a mix of soul, blues and jazz music, he entertains the crowd in a way that’s endearing to the Big Easy.
