Singers Justin and George Nozuka On the Rise

May 12, 2008

EW likens Nozuka's music to that of acoustic soul musicians Gavin DeGraw and Citizen Cope. Check out his MySpace to hear songs and catch the music video below for his song "Criminal." 

"Soulful" is a good adjective for his voice, especially considering he's only 19. And music apparently runs in the family. Justin's 22-year-old brother George is an R&B singer in Canada who has charted well on MuchMusic (Canada's answer to MTV). You can listen to his music on his MySpace. Check out the music video below for his song, "Last Time."
