Get to Know Justin Garner, an Early Bet for R&B’s Next Top Breakout Artist

Justin Garner ticks the boxes of singer, songwriter, and performer. With no breaks in sight, the Plaquemine, Louisiana-born artist has cemented his place in the industry by creating and performing original music, covering top hits, and writing songs for today’s biggest artists.

With impressive takes on covers like Ella Mai’s “Trip” and a steady stream of self-released music, the multifaceted performer has carved out his own lane. His latest singles “If This Bed Could Talk”, produced by Drake’s hitmaker BlaqNmilD (“In My Feelings” and “Nice for What”), and “Push My Luck” are both lifted from his Imprint EP (2019).

Adding to his accolades, Garner’s music has been featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday. He’s also bolstered his stage performances for new and existing fans, a sign of constant improvement. This year, he performed at the 50th New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival during which he opened for Katy Perry, Leon Bridges, and Logic. He also took the stage at the 25th Essence Festival featuring host and former First Lady, Michelle Obama, and headliners, H.E.R. and Mary J. Blige.

As a genre-defying talent, Garner has penned music for the likes of rising mogul Rihanna, breakout star Normani and others. To date, he has released full-length albums, We Only Have Forever (2015) and I AM (2014). Armored with an impressive discography, his 2017 EP, Into the Wild, showcased his musical diversity and vocal range.
