Justin Rutledge

Justin Rutledge

Listen to alt-country music by singer/songwriter Justin Rutledge from Toronto. Enjoy his latest album East released last year, which is described like this:

The songs on East see Justin embracing new styles, from the gospel tinged ‘The Great Ascension’, to the lo-fi lament of ‘Queen Street Lost’. Not lost, however, are the country-tinged pop songs like ‘The Old Oak’ and ‘Blue Jeans’. Of course, the hushed voice and the intricate storytelling remain, making East Justin’s most accomplished album to date.
