Testimonials

Justin was such a pleasure to work with. From the initial contact and the phone and email conversations before our event. We loved all of the songs he played and his playing style. We even had some ‘sing-a-longs’ at the end. We had an intimate dinner, outside with friends, on a lovely vineyard property in Napa Valley and having Justin there made it even more special. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
— Kristin K.
Justin was a pleasure to work with, and provided beautiful, moving music for my wedding. He played before and during the ceremony, and worked with me to arrange a song that I sang at the wedding. I met with Justin twice, and both times he was professional, friendly and helpful. He played through a wide variety of music for us, helping us narrow down what we wanted, and I loved the options he provided. For the song that I sang, Justin offered to send me a recording of himself playing so that I could practice. This was incredible. When my processional music started, I was immediately in tears. The music fit the mood perfectly, and Justin played beautifully!
— Kate B.
Justin called and emailed ahead of the anniversary evening to check in. He arrived early to the party, was dressed very professionally, was very lovely to deal with, played beautifully and added just what we had hoped for to the feeling of the night. We would love to have him come and play again for any special event in the future.

Justin Seagrave, previously known as Justin Houchin, is a classically-trained guitarist, a born story-teller and a happy dude. His music draws from classical, folk, bluegrass, jazz and indigenous music from around the world. His lyrics cover important issues such as monsters, mermaids, bugs, the world's end, old tree friends, and interstellar thugs.

Born in Los Angeles, CA to a family of artists, he has always spent a great deal of time in imaginary places. Growing up, he pursued creative writing, filmmaking, robotics, acting and acrobatics. However, music won the battle for his narrow attention span, and he went on to study classical guitar at the San Francisco Conservatory.

After completing his studies, he spent ten months roaming the European continent where he got a self-awarded masters degree in street performing, euro-jamming and getting lost.

He now lives in San Francisco as a professional classical musician and guitar teacher. He spends the mornings and afternoons writing music and honing his guitar skills, while making a point to jump into the ocean at least twice a week.

I want to write the next batch of songs for my original music and I hope to release a new album in the near future.
