Justin Jesso is known for his classic, soulful yet driving modern sound. He not only writes for himself, but also for Kygo and the Backstreet Boys, among others.



Music has always been in the bloodstream of Justin Jesso. His great grandfather – the man, whose surname Justin chose as his moniker – was a popular bandleader in the Roaring Twenties, entertaining Chicago’s underworld with his piano skills at special request of the infamous Al Capone many times. Almost 100 years later, Justin Jesso, is a celebrated Artist and Songwriter, with over a billion streams for his collaborations with international pop greats such as Ricky Martin, Maluma, The Backstreet Boys, and Norwegian dance producer Kygo (co-writing and featuring on his global smash “Stargazing”).

Signed to Sony, Justin released his debut EP “Let it Be Me” in 2019, featuring singles “Getting Closer” (a top 5 radio record in Europe), and Let It Be Me (Featuring Nina Nesbitt). His most recent DJ collaborations with Alle Farben “As Far As Feelings Go” peaked at #3 on the German Radio Charts, and his follow up single “Bigger Than,” with Norwegian producing duo Seeb (Pill In Ibiza), has over 60 million streams.

As a writer, he co-wrote and earned a Latin Grammy nomination for the No.1 smash “Vente Pa`Ca (Ricky Martin, feat. Maluma)” as well as writing singles for young up and comers like AJ Mitchell, HRVY, K-pop acts like Shinee and Red Velvet, and seasoned veteran acts like the Backstreet Boys, Armin Van Buren, Madcon, And Aloe Blacc to name a few. He has upcoming releases with Michael Bolton, Max, Jolin, Steve Aoki and others.

Justin plans to tour extensively and release his first full length album in 2022.
