2017 Trackside Music Festival Artist Lineup
Saturday, July 1st / Side-Track Stage
Justine Chantale is emerging as one of the most promising young artists in Canadian country and pop music the world is only beginning to discover because of her ambitious singing and sincere songwriting. She hails from Stratford, Ontario, but it’s amazing to think that such a huge voice can come from such a small town.
Justine began to develop her signature flair as a performer thanks to discovering her love of music and natural singing ability as a child in her elementary school choir. Once she became fourteen her talent began to diversify itself when she translated her lifelong passion for songwriting into her ability to craft her own sound on the guitar. It wasn’t until she was eighteen that she began honing her angelic voice with formal vocal training to use vocals as an instrument of its own, from which she created a harmonious relationship with her own signature songs on guitar.
Since then, Justine teamed up with producer Nick Ross to release the EP Stepping Stones in 2015, which spawned singles like “The Prettiest” and the fan-favorite “Half Broken Heart”. As a live act, she has taken the stage in London, Sarnia, St. Thomas, Stratford and Cambridge but she reached new heights as a concert performer in 2016. That’s when she brought her songs alive during Country Music Week and the Canadian Country Music Awards! She was able to showcase her talents in front of audiences by opening for landmark artists including Jess Moskoluke, Chad Brownlee, David James, The Lovelocks, and, Bobby Wills. This also afforded her the chance to take the stage at the prestigious London Music Hall and the historic Western Fair in London.
In addition to performing live regularly, Justine is currently writing and recording new music, with plans to release two new singles to Canadian Country Radio this year. She continues to perfect her art as a songwriter, and performer as part of her life long musical journey.
