stranger in my town

Nick Justice was born in New York and grew up on the North Shore of Long Island. Raised on pop music and AM radio as a child, he started to lean towards the sounds coming from California as a teenager. The Eagles, Jackson Browne, and Crosby, Stills and Nash prompted him to move to the Golden State. With guitar in hand, he landed in San Diego in the late 1980s where the “cowpunk “ movement in the form of The Blasters, X, and the Beat Farmers was beginning to form.

Music Review - `The Road Not Taken` by Nick Justice

Nick Justice is one of those artists whose name may not be widely known but whose music seems like its been in the ether forever. Best typecast as Americana, he doesn’t opt for a carbon copy sound.

“Stranger In My Town” (2023) CD Review

Nick Justice opens this album with its title track, “Stranger In My Town.” While there is something of a cheerful vibe to the music, this song tells a rather sad tale of a person becoming a stranger in his own town
