Justin Payne

Style: Countr.

Bio: Raised, lives and works as a coalminer in Boone County, West Virginia.

Born at the height of the "Outlaw Movement" Justin cut his teeth on the console stereo while Willie Nelson was playing on the turntable. That would be the biggest influence on his musical style when he picked up a guitar at age 14.

Style: Countr.

Bio: Raised, lives and works as a coalminer in Boone County, West Virginia.

Born at the height of the "Outlaw Movement" Justin cut his teeth on the console stereo while Willie Nelson was playing on the turntable. That would be the biggest influence on his musical style when he picked up a guitar at age 14.

Through the years his style has evolved to include elements of Bluegrass, Rock, Blues, and even some modern day underground country such as Whitey Morgan and the 78's, Hellbound Glory, Dallas Moore, and Sturgill Simpson to name a few.

Justin first made a name for himself around Appalachia when he released the single Miner's Soul in 2011. A song wrote from the perspective of a coalminer who lost his life providing for his loved ones. A raw simple recording that was inspired by the Upper Big Branch mine explosion that claimed the lives of 29 miners on April 5, 2010.

On July 29,2014 Justin released his first full length project titled No Place Lower Than High. A collection of real life, real true, hard drinkin', hard livin', heart broken, all original country songs. A total independent release with Justin's name from top to bottom. Believing that today's country music was lacking of the simple truth and consequence of the genre's golden yesteryear, Justin set out to make and album that fans who still love songs could appreciate. Not just a beat and a hook. Not just a endless empty party anthem. Simple, relatable, sit back with a beverage and just listen kind of album. One just like all the ones Justin grew up enjoying. « hide
