(narozen v roce 1968 Londýně), který žije od roku 2004 v Praze, si postupně vypracoval pověst vyhledávaného performera nejen v České Republice. Jeho hudba se ubírá napříč styly mezi blues,
folkem a jazzem. Virtuózní hra na kytaru často nechá užaslé
publikum s otázkou, jak dokáže jeden muž na jeden nástroj
vytvořit polyfonii tolika vrstev.

Základem Lavashova stylu je sice klasická vybrnkávací technika ve šlépějích průkopníků Richarda Thompsona či Johna Martyna, ale v duchu expanze tradičních forem u něj nepřekvapí ani prvky psychedelie, tanečního funky či naopak lyrické anebo dramatické
balady. Před příchodem do Prahy nasbíral své hráčské zkušenosti v jižním Londýně, kde hrál v devadesátých letech jazz i kabaret, často coby sideman někdejších pěveckých hvězd.

Jeho vlastní zpěv, syrově hluboký a uhrančivý, vtáhne posluchače do skladeb, kde silné (nezřídka autobiografické) příběhy střídají poetické imprese. Díky vyspělé technice, která si nezadá s Justinovým talentem komponovat, jej vyhledávají čeští umělci z nejrespektovanějších – Lenka Dusilová („Brother" na CD Baromantika and „Mayday" na CD V hodine smrti), Michal Horáček („Dizzy and stranded in Prague" z alba Český Kalendář), Sunflower Caravan (CD A little bit more), Monika Načeva (CD Milostný Slabiky), Radúza (CD Marathon), DG 307 či Vladimir Merta. Dvě písně („Brother" a „Dizzy and stranded in Prague") obdržely ocenění v soutěži Českého gramofonového průmyslu Anděl v letech 2012 a 2013.

Poslední vydané album Live in Prague Vol. 2 (říjen 2018) je mixem Lavashových starých i nových písní ze studiových alb a dřívějších demo nahrávek. Nové aranžmá všech skladeb dává vyniknout atmosféře živého vystoupení.

Justin Lavash (born London 1968) has been based in Prague for thirteen years and during that time has established himself as a must-see act on the Czech music scene and abroad. His music crosses borders - somewhere between blues, folk and jazz. His phenomenal guitar playing has left many audiences wondering how so much polyphony can be made by one man on one instrument. Lavash identifies himself as a fingerstyle guitarist, following in the footsteps of British folk guitar gurus like Richard Thompson or John Martyn, but he is of a younger generation and traces of New Wave and even dance culture can be found in his music. Prior to living in the Czech Republic Lavash worked as a guitarist in south London's jazz scene in the 90s and later cabaret scene, both as a guitarist and a transcriber.

His deep, soulful voice entices the listener to sit and absorb the beautiful songs this artist has penned. In fact his skills as a performer are matched with his talents as a songwriter. He has written or co-written and performed songs by some of the Czech Republic's most repected artists - Lenka Dusilova ("Brother" on Baromantika and "Mayday" on V hodine smrtii), Michal Horacek ("Dizzy and stranded in Prague" from Cesky Kalendar), Sunflower Caravan ("A little bit more"), Monika Naceva ("Milostny Slabiky") and he has also worked with Raduza (Marathon), DG307 and Vladimir Merta. Two of his songs ("Brother" and " Dizzy and stranded in Prague" were on releases which received prizes in the Czech gramophone industry's Andel awards in 2012 and 2013.

His 2015 studio album, Changing of Tides (Tranzistor, May 2015) shows Lavash flexing some songwriting muscle, and moves through genres like blues, country, jazz, funk and soul with breathtaking ease. His 2016 release Programmed saw an audacious fusion of bottleneck blues and electronica styles and earned top marks in Czechia’s prestigious Reflex magazine as well as extensive airplay on Prague’s Radio1 among others. Lavash continues to tour extensively through Europe, not least in the Czech Republic. He is definitely well worth seeing live.
