Justin McRoberts
Reason For Living



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 12 tracks: 47 minutes, 29 seconds
Street Date: 1999


I've seen this boy in concert twice already and he rocks! Although it's usually just him, himself, and his guitar, he can put on quite an entertaining show complete with witty humor and a cell phone call to his mom.

Justin's debut release Reason for Living is a compilation of heart-felt tunes all penned by the man himself. His passionate vocals and down-to-earth personality make his jazzy pop tunes easy to digest and enjoy. The title track is a album highlight along with the theme song for anyone who's ever felt like a loser, "5th Wheel."

Justin makes it very clear he's on the same level as the listener with many of his songs. Easy to relate to as songs like "Not Free," "With Your Eyes," and "Heaven Help Me." Honest, passionate, touching, encouraging, Reason for Living is a melodic journey into the life of a Californian with a heart for the Savior.
