About Justin Kemp:
Justin Kemp was born and raised in Hobbs, New Mexico on the Texas Border. Growing up in a musical family he was heavily influenced by the great Merle Haggard, George Jones, Keith Whitley, and all of the legends going back to the 1970’s. Once he picked up the guitar at the age of eleven there was no turning back. He began songwriting in High School and pursued music at South Plains College in Levelland, TX. With the support of his father, David Kemp, who also plays bass with the band, the Justin Kemp Band was born. Justin co-writes many of the original songs the band records and performs with his father, including Steppin’ Stone, which released in advance of their performance in Nashville during CMA Fest 2018.
Justin and the band tour nationally and he also performs as a trio with David and their fiddle player Megan Poppe. They have opened for many major acts including Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Abbott Band, Kevin Fowler, and Wade Bowen to name a few. Justin was also invited to play at Craig Campbell’s legendary Corn Hole Tournament this past June at CMA Fest 2018. With a 2019 Tour on the horizon the band is busy completing their second EP, and traveling back and forth to Nashville to get the job done.
