Justin Wellington Interview With The Emerging Talent Agency

  • ETA: First off, thanks for doing this interview with us, it’s an honor!
    • Justin Wellington: Thank you, it is for me as well 🙂
  • ETA: So Justin, what motivated you to become a musician?
    • Justin Wellington: I entered a school variety show when I was in grade 7. I sang an RnB song by After 7 with a friend of mine. The response we got from the crowd was totally crazy and that was definitely the moment when I knew that I wanted to be a singer.
  • ETA: How long have you been creating music? What age did you begin?
    • Justin Wellington: I first started to write and record my own songs pretty much as soon as I left high school. I joined a band who were very much into writing their own material and so it came pretty naturally to me.
  • ETA: You were raised in Papua New Guinea, what’s the music scene like there for an emerging artist like yourself?
    • Justin Wellington: In terms of the talent and quality of music, the music scene in PNG has always been terrific. The industry itself has had many ups and downs and has often struggled with poltical-type quarrels between labels, radio stations etc… This has not prevented quality music from continuing to come to the surface. Nowadays, like much of the rest of the world, independent labels and artists in PNG are still creating and releasing high quality music. I was very lucky because even from my debut I immediately received strong support for my songs from radio stations throughout PNG and this has continued to be the case.

  • ETA: How do you describe your music?
    • Justin Wellington:
      The best way I can describe it is “island pop”. It could also be classified as “urban island” as well. My music is primarily island influenced. That includes various different island styles from around the world i.e. reggae, zouk, dancehall, reggaeton etc… and also some rnb as well. The overwhelming style of my music is these types of genres combined heavily with pop.
