Fort Worth, Texas
music artist Justin Billotte to perform in central Ohio
Lariat Records announced today that country music artist Justin
Billotte will be performing select shows in support of his upcoming
album release “Just Getting Started”.
Producer Rob Lavender says the album
contains a variety of
song styles and the decision to go all acoustic was the desire for a
clean uncluttered sound to better present Justin’s vocals. The all
acoustic country album is a well rounded presentation that contains two
songs written by Justin Billotte himself including the title track
“Just Getting Started”. In this album Justin shows that he can adeptly
ride the fence line between old school country music traditions and new
country styling. A 3rd quarter release date is expected for the album.
Justin Billotte is a young
neo-traditionalist country artist
from Ohio. His new album may be all acoustic, however his show is not.
The acoustic material he does perform is outstanding, but the bulk of
his show has a very contemporary country sound. With a an all new band
featuring two lead guitarists fans can expect to hear something a bit
different and exciting. The new show includes a wide range of country
songs and some great ballads. Justin Billotte will kick off his new
tour with several shows in central Ohio, not far from where he grew up.
