Justin Froese

Justin Froese has music running through him. He carries it with him wherever he goes. That it would reach people’s hearts and help them not feel alone on their journey is his greatest hope. Classically trained and well-seasoned, when sharing his music he puts all of that aside to focus on simply letting something bigger than him come through the music.
