Shadow of Sound is the culmination of a lifetime of musical experimentation and adventure. It is the blossom atop the stem of a musical career spanning three decades, which gradually traversed northward along the western coast of the United States until taking root in Portland, Oregon—the heart of America's beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Justin John began playing piano and singing at the age of three, guitar at age eleven, and drums at age thirteen. He has become a strong presence in the lively Portland music community, playing lead guitar in "Garcia Birthday Band (GBB)", one of the region's most celebrated Grateful Dead tributes.

Now in this new decade, Justin John and the Shadow of Sound brings to life a vision that combines several disciplines mastered over a long career: Guitarist, Drummer, Pianist, Singer, Songwriter, Audio Engineer & Producer. Every audible facet of this music is a unique dimension of that vision—the handiwork of Justin John and his many, many different shadows.
