My name is Juston Hargrove and I am a singer/songwriter/guitar player from Austin, TX. I have been compared to John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr. I was a guitarist and composer for the Texas State Jazz Combo while in college, and have released two original studio albums. I perform solo sets and also have a band of 4 musicians that include myself on guitar and vocals, a bassist, keyboardist (vocals), and drummer. I am professional, punctual, reliable, and quality driven. I have played SXSW, Pecan Street Festival, several Austin venues, and I have several years of experience entertaining diverse audience groups. My set list includes originals from my recent studio album release "Pitch To Johnny" which includes my critically acclaimed single "Off The Cliff", as well as covers from artist like Michael Jackson, Prince, John Mayer, Bill Withers, Elton John, Earth Wind and Fire, and Al Green just to name a few. Below are reviews written about my latest album "Pitch To Johnny" and single "Off The Cliff" Salute Magazine http://salutemag.com/indie-justin-hargrove-fuses-jazz-soul-rock-together-new-single/ "His latest effort Pitched To Johnny often blends multiple styles of crafty guitar work into singular pieces of art. His current single “Off The Cliff” intertwines acoustic picking with electric leads in a manner that shows off his command and mastery of his instrument. The track has a political message and finds its stride at the bridge which elevates it into a different space. Juston Hargrove is definitely worth the time of fans that enjoy Gary Clark Jr., Ben Harper and John Mayer" Aipate Magazine https://aipate.com/2018/01/13/off-the-cliff-juston-hargrove/ "We share with you an beautiful song, “Off The Cliff” that we unearthed and believe will be of interest to you. It is by singer Juston Hargrove. It was part of his album, Pitch To Johnny. The album is a project that aesthetically combines the strength of indie, R&B and Soul in such a way that can easily quench the growing thirst for great music lovers." Earmilk https://earmilk.com/2018/01/03/juston-hargrove-latest-single-is-off-the-cliff/ "Musically the song takes certain elements from blues, soul and jazz music which gives it that vintage feel from the jump. Adding to that, his emotionally powerful vocals are also crucial in all this as he delivers his lines like a true soul sage" In Living Sound https://inlivingsound.org/post/169588759448/juston-hargrove-off-the-cliff-premier "The Gary Clark Jr, Soul, and funk on his guitar. His song is Off The Cliff. You need to hear it!"

Ulrich Ellison is not your typical Blues rock guy. The Texas-based guitarist with European roots has quite a story to tell, utilizing his own voice – a bluesy, cool sound that is pushing the borders of the genre. A high-caliber guitarist, Ellison can easily switch from lightning fast modal runs to swamp-soaked blues and singing guitar leads that make his guitar talk. His avid songwriting ranges from southern-rock inspired songs like “Machete” and “Teardrops In The Rain” to the bluesy “Waiting For A Better Day”, Led Zeppelin-type arena rock like “Ten Feet Tall”, enchanting instrumentals like “Memories Of You” to the radio-ready “Feeling So Lonely” and “Faith, Love And Puppies”. But his real mastery lies in connecting with his audience, and he is not afraid to prove it as he frequently jumps off stage to serenade the crowd one-on-one. His soul mate and wife Sabine Ellison on bass adds a huge, fat foundation that perfectly locks in with Texas groove veteran Joel Duhon on drums. Upgrading the lineup into full-fledged jam band territory is keyboardist and accordeonist Jan Flemming. Named #1 “Blues/Soul/Funk Act” at the 2015 Austin Music Awards, Ulrich Ellison and his Tribe have been voted as finalists for the 2016 European Blues Challenge in Torrita Di Siena. Playing nearly every major Austin venue as well as clubs and festivals in the US and EU, they have gathered a loyal and sizable following of fans.
