About me:I'm a bass player, songwriter, and producer. I live in Los Angeles, where I was raised. I do love this town, as strange as it can be. It's particularly enjoyable coming home after being on the road for a while to enjoy the sun, get a burrito, ride my bike, or see a Dodger game. My wife Corinne and I have a 3 1/2 year-old daughter, Zelly Boo, who is our complete pride and joy. My main hobby is creating music, and my profession is creating music, so you can guess where all my time goes. There's no question that I'm what you'd call a "people person" in the truest, non-cynical way. So, I actually prefer working amongst others, not in isolation. Hence my penchant for ensemble songwriting, producing records, and my love of the "band" dynamic. My resume includes work with Beck (over a decade), Air, Tori Amos, Garbage, Macy Gray, Ima Robot (my own band), Courtney Love, Nelly Furtado, Mars Volta, Dixie Chicks, Marianne Faithful, Ladytron, They Might Be Giants, Goldfrapp, and a bunch more. Currently, I am playing with Nine Inch Nails, starting a North American tour in July '08. Thanks for visiting.
Who I'd like to meet:Most Everybody! The problem is, I get too many Myspace email messages now, and I don't have time to answer them. So thanks for visiting, but I humbly ask that you do not send me messages or expect a response from me. If you have something business related to discuss with me, please contact me via the "contact" page on my personal website, www.justinmj.com. My management forwards all pertinent communication to me very quicky. All so, please do not post spam comments on here. Unsolicited band promotion or anything that smells remotely of advertising isn't appreciated. Thanks!
