Justin Yap Band won "Group or Duo of the year" at the prestigious Australian Blues Awards this year, and his second album "Let Love" hit number One on the Independent Australian Blues and Roots Radio Charts and spent five months in the charts in total

Since releasing Let Love the Justin Yap Band has been going from strength to strength, hitting No. 1 on the Australian Blues Charts; winning Group of the Year at the Australian Blues Music Awards; and playing festivals and expanding tours around the country.

From Melbourne, Australia, the band has one foot planted firmly in the traditions of soul, funk, blues and jazz while the other moving forward creating new music branching from American roots music. The JYB is constantly exploring ideas through songwriting and improvising, culminating into Let Love, the band’s most cohesive effort to date.

The album also sees the addition of Ben Wicks (King Wolf, Jesse Valach Presents Blues Mountain) on bass and Cameron Smith (Blue Eyes Cry) on drums, giving the band a new focus and energy that has elevated the JYB shows to something truly special. Justin’s fiery guitar playing and tone is matched by Nardia’s vocals in intensity and resolve, with Ollie Rolfe’s virtuosity completing the circle in a band focused on creating music that means something.
JYB crosses Blues, Jazz and Funk seamlessly..
