re/CREATE celebrates musicians paying homage to the traditions they love while creating music from the heart. Here, we feature Justin Goldner’s take on electroacoustic music.
Artist: Justin Goldner
Producer, songwriter, arranger and session musician Justin Goldner has been privileged to make music with Sting, Ricky Martin, Macy Gray, Donald Glover, Ledisi, Jordin Sparks, Steve Martin, Jane Monheit, Max Martin, Matisyahu, Jason Robert Brown, Audra McDonald and a host of others, including his mentor, Meshell Ndegeocello. He’s contributed to Grammy, Tony and Golden Globe-winning projects, and is bewildered to have been allowed onstage such storied venues as Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, the Apollo Theater and Madison Square Garden where he recently accompanied Ben Platt live at the 60th annual Grammy Awards.
A restless traveler, peripatetic New Yorker and “language junkie,” music has taken Justin to 47 states and 44 countries including Iran, Latin America, South Africa and three of the seven “-stans,” where he has performed and engaged with local cultures, conducted workshops in three languages and exchanged experiences and music with others from across the world.
