The Canadian-American artist Justin Nozuka has triumphantly returned with brand new single “All I Need”, his first new release since 2014’s Ulysees LP, and the lead single on his brand new High Tide EP. Produced by Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Eliza Shaddad, Tom Speight), “All I Need” is a warming tonic for the soul, with Nozuka’s flawless talent for songwriting shining through the bouncing acoustic strings, emphatic percussion, and the musician’s expressive, light-touch vocal.
I an open letter to his fans, existing and new, Justin Nozuka shares:
“I’m over the moon ecstatic to be sharing this new music with you. I wanted to thank you for your ongoing support throughout these years of silence and experimentation. I’ve been working on this album for over 2 and a half years. There were many times when I thought I was close, only to realize more songs needed to be written… It was an ongoing challenge, a proper mountain to climb.
I had the great privilege of working with an incredibly talented producer/musician by the name Chris Bond. We recorded both in Toronto, Canada and Devon, England over a couple months earlier this year. He truly brought these songs to life, fulfilling a sound I have dreamed lots about. I am tremendously grateful to him for his work and passion.
And now we are putting this out into the world…!
The album will come in 3 stages. The first and current stage is part 1, “High Tide”. This collection features 3 songs; All I Need, Hourglass and No Place in Mind. It’s a slight taste of what the album is about… warmth, nature, youthfulness and honesty in expression. I hope it brings some of these things to you. I am determined to be touring from here on out, I hope to see you on the road : )
With love and everlasting gratitude, Justin”
Justin Nozuka’s High Tide EP is a resounding reflection of this young artist’s development, one that began back in 2007 with the release of his debut album, Holly, in 2010 when the singer-songwriter was just 17-years-old. It was that first album and music video for LP track “After Tonight”, which reached over 15 million views, that launched this young talent into worldwide acclaim for his honest and uncompromising sound. Nozuka fans will also remember his second and third albums, You I Wind Land And Sea (2010), a certified Gold Record in France, and Ulysees (2014) of which singles “Right By You” and “Nest” have garnered millions of online streams.
Shortly after the release of High Tide EP, Nozuka will be heading out on a European tour from September 26th, with a headline show at London’s Omeara on October 3rd. Tickets and event info here.
