Justin LaBrash is a sixth generation Saskatchewan farmer and all around cowboy. He was awarded runner-up in the 620 CKRM 2016 Proudly Saskatchewan Showcase as well as named the Most Promising Entertainer. Justin has been featured on “Pickin’ It Country” on 91.3 CJTR hosted by Reg Wilke as well as Access 7 Talk of the Town, CTV Morning, and Global Music Monday. He has performed at festivals and events all over southern Saskatchewan, including main stage performances at Moose Jaw Sidewalk Days and the Hillbilly Boogie Festival near Kenaston. SK. Recently, Justin experienced his first performance in Ontario when he was at Niagara Falls. Continuing on east, Justin made a three week radio and performance tour to the Atlantic provinces in the summer of 2016, including a performance at the Hank Snow Tribute Festival in Liverpool, NS. Justin enjoyed opening for country music greats such as Alex Runions, Craig Moritz, Julian Austin, and The Washboard Union. Justin and his band, "True North" have also performed at numerous venues including McNally's Tavern and Chillers Brew Pub. In November of 2015, Justin and True North were selected by SaskMusic to work world renown live music producers, Tom Jackson and Associates from Nashville. Justin has made fans throughout Saskatchewan, across this great nation, as well as in more than ten countries around the world.
Justin released his debut single, "Play" world-wide in September 2015 and his second single "Blue Collar Worker" was released in March 2016. He released his third single, "Honeybee" at the same time as his debut album in July 2016. "Honeybee" received radio play in every province in Canada and landed at the #2 spot on the Canadian country radio downloads.
He enjoys entertaining people from all walks of life and regularly will perform at nursing homes, the children's wards at local hospitals, and the Cosmopolitan Learning Centre. Justin believes strongly in building communities and “paying it forward”. He has formed a partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan Foundation and a portion of the revenue he personally receives for performances is donated to the CHSF so other Saskatchewan children will have the opportunity to realize their dreams.
