New release: Open Book Winter Album
Blue October's Justin Furstenfeld is a captivating live performer, a gifted and complex songwriter who has poured into his songs intimate details of his many personal battles. While he unabashedly wears his heart on his sleeve, his tribulations have provided a unique link to fans who share similar personal challenges. His recent shows have consisted of spoken word, rounded off with a question-and-answer session, an also include an acoustic set of songs never before heard and intimate versions of favorites. The shows breakdown the walls of artist and audience and provide fans the most access to Justin ever. "I always look forward to the spoken word/solo shows," says Justin. "The fact that I’m sitting just a few feet away from the audience, that there are no rules as to what they ask me, or that I don’t have boundaries on my answers, is what is exciting to me. I’m hoping that the evening will give everyone a chance to dig deep, connect, and explore the dark corners of why honesty, no matter how brutal, remains one of the most beautiful aspects of being human. Through poetry, music, and conversation, we heal. Why not do it together?" He comes to Michigan with a new spoken word release, "Open Book Winter Album."
