Nineteen-year-old Toronto resident Justin Nozuka, who has spent a lot of time on the road this year headlining in Canada and Europe and touring in the States with fellow singer/songwriters Eric Hutchinson and Marie Digby, is out in support of his debut release, Holly, which is garnering him considerable attention from critics and fans alike.

The Gabe Dixon Band is also out behind its debut release, The Tennessean, which was recorded live over ten days at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios with co-producer Neal Cappelino (Alison Krauss, Mindy Smith, Jonny Lang).

The group has generated a lot of buzz from the album, which features personal yet universally accessible songs that bring to mind Elton John’s Madman Across The Water or Billy Joel’s Piano Man, as well as from blazing live shows that have drawn praise from fans like Sara Bareilles, Jamie Cullum and Dan Wilson.
