ABOUT THE ARTIST

Genre: Family

Local kids music favorite, Justin Roberts, sets up at SPACE for an all-request acoustic show! Joined by Liam Davis and Gerald Dowd, the three-time Grammy nominee will share tunes from his extensive discography and maybe even some unreleased songs inspired by his newest creative endeavor - fatherhood. Post to Justin's Facebook or Twitter to request a song! (One per family, please)

Three-time GRAMMY Nominee Justin Roberts is truly one of the “all-stars” of the indie family music scene. For more than 20 years, Justin has been creating the soundtrack to families’ lives, crafting songs that navigate the joys and sorrows of growing up. Justin’s latest recording for families titled Lemonade, is “an absolute gem” according to Paste Magazine. He logs thousands of miles on the road each year performing for his devoted fan base. Live shows include classics like the fist-pumping “Pop Fly” and parent favorite, “Stay-At-Home Dad” with its very own 80’s pop anthem song break. It’s the spontaneity and humor that really shows the band’s polish and love of performing for young audiences. That’s what’s made Justin Roberts one of the genre’s most enduring musicians.

In 2014, Justin composed a musical, Hansel & Gretel: A Wickedly Delicious Musical Treat with renowned playwright, Ernie Nolan. A new touring production featuring stunning animated projections produced by Valley Performing Arts Center and Playhouse Square premiered on January 22, 2017 in Los Angeles and toured the US in 2017.

Justin is the proud author of two picture books published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers. The Smallest Girl in the Smallest Grade, illustrated by Christian Robinson, is inspired by his beloved song, “Billy the Bully” and has been incorporated into classrooms across the country. In The Great Henry Hopendower, illustrated by Deborah Hocking, a young boy remembers his much-loved grandpa.

Justin Roberts offers songwriting workshops for kids of all ages.
