Today we’d like to introduce you to Christian Justus. Them and their team share their story with us below:
SKIES OF AVALON Forged by the union of Western NC bands 28 Pages & Palenium, Nashville recording artist(s) Skies of Avalon is a semi-progressive rock band w/ classic rock elements, focusing on thought-provoking originals accompanied by some key cover song counterparts. Tides are their first single, originally released in October 2021. Full-length album coming December 2022. Influences include Rush, Asia, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, Queensryche, and many more. Members: Johnny Thorn-guitar/vocals, Steven Posey-keyboard/vocals, Christian Justus-bass/vocals, Jacob Whiteside-drums.
Can you talk to us about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The transition and re-branding from a working cover band to a primarily original material-based band. We are defining our niche in an already well-populated rock/metal market and defining the separation of our sound while still delivering something somewhat familiar to an interested audience.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Skies of Avalon have a unique sound, drawing from many different genres to deliver songs in our special way. The material often touches on real-world situations that most people have experienced or will experience in their life. We also have multiple song concepts that encompass larger stories with a defined beginning, middle, end, and everything in between. Sometimes these musical journeys are fantasy based. No matter the song, we always try to encourage with a positive message.
What makes you happy?
Music. It is the ultimate universal language and speaks to you in ways that spoken language between people cannot. It is special in that it moves a person deep down in their soul.
