Justin Nozuka has drawn praise previously at age 17 with his debut album, Holly. Since his debut, Justin has received a duo of JUNO nominations in Canada, two Gold albums (Holly, and You I Wind Land Sea), as well as winning an NRJ Award in France. Alongside this, he has toured internationally, playing alongside world renowned artists such as Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, John Mayer, and Jazon Mraz. He appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Show and Good Morning America, and continues to demonstrate his ability to impress and inspire on a global level.
With over 111MM cumulative global streams, Nozuka 's "No One But You" marks his first release since 2018, once again looking to push the envelope of his sound, shifting from the folk-minded approach of his previous album, Run to Waters, into a world of warm, analogue R&B and smouldering, down-tempo soul.
The son of a Japanese father and American mother, Nozuka was born in New York City as one of seven children before relocating to Toronto. Nozuka began writing music at the age of 12, playing shows in Toronto on the burgeoning folk and singer/songwriter circuit before attracting the attention of British indie label, Outcaste Records (Joss Stone, KT Tunstall) who signed him early on in his career. For Nozuka's 2010 release, You I Wind Land and Sea, he had expanded his sound further, experimenting with his techniques and self-producing at his home studio which was built by himself. 2020 marked the exciting return of one of Toronto's most prevalent artists, and it also hints towards a larger project which will materialize throughout 2021.
