Justin Hines: Live in Concert is a journey with the unique, inspiring, and courageous, singer-songwriter Justin Hines.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Justin spreads his message of hope and resilience from Canada to tornado torn Joplin, Missouri, to school children rebuilding their schools and dreams in South Africa. Born with the rare genetic disorder Larsen Syndrome, Justin is confined to a wheelchair his whole life but he still finds a way to thrive against the odds that would daunt someone with a less indomitable spirit. “The reality is I don’t really look at my situation as that big a deal”, he says. “We all have our things that challenge us, just some peoples are a little more visible in the forefront. Mine is very apparent, whereas others wear it on the inside.”

Hines has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning and has his own PBS Special all in support of his latest album, Days To Recall (Decca). In addition, he has traveled the world and played in front of sold out crowds in some of the most prestigious venues in North America. He’s even scaled down the side of a 33-story building in his wheelchair.
Optimism permeates throughout Days to Recall, Justin Hines U.S. debut album. The Canadian singer-songwriter’s collection of heartfelt songs about life and love showcase his considerable talents, and his will to overcome insurmountable obstacles.
Even though Justin grew up singing in church, the realization of pursuing his musical dreams happened at the most unlikely of places—at a Toronto Raptors’ basketball game in his hometown 15 years ago. A then 14-year-old Justin won a vocal competition to sing the National Anthem at the game—both the Canadian and American—and his world opened up before him. “In that moment, it all seemed possible,” he recalls. Thrown in the deep end, Hines has performed professionally ever since and realized he could not only survive, but thrive.
