"Baron dazzles St. Joseph's student body"

On Dec. 2, Never Die packed Simpson Hall with over 100 students for a showcase of the musicians who have signed with the label.

Justin Baron, '10, led off the show as a solo act on piano. His vocals could best be characterized as a mix between Jamie Cullum and Brett Dennen. Singing in a deeper register, though, he lent a distinct soulfulness to his lyrics.

Baron's explosive style of play lent itself well to the complex, wandering melody lines he threw between verses on his originals, but he also used it for some interesting interpretations of covers. With his own distinct version of the Beatles' "Let it Be," he perhaps betrayed some of his formative influences.

In a notable cover of the Flobots' "No Handlebars," Baron looped a piano hook and sang the song's opening bars over it before pulling a trumpet out of a discrete case at his feet for a spot-on rendering of the hip-hop/rock single. - The Hawk

"Students showcase skills at off-campus open mic"

Rapper Geoff Vanover and singer-pianist Justin Baron premiered their first collaboration, which was a mix of intense vocals on Vanover's part and hectic jazz-pop piano by Baron. Baron gave an impressive, soulful performance that St. Joe's students have come to expect. His mastery of the piano and vocal skills were evident in this set.

Overall, the night was a success, as evidenced by the audience members and performers alike who complimented many of the performers after the show - The Hawk

"Justin Baron makes Philly "panic" with CD Release Show 11/12"

As far as album titles go, Justin Baron’s debut EP, Soundless Panic, is far from autobiographical. Baron has been stirring up quite the ruckus in the city of Brotherly Love with his innovative brand of alternative piano pop, and appears to be quite comfortable doing just that. His long-awaited EP will finally be made available to the public at his record release show on Thursday, November 12 at Milkboy Coffee in Ardmore, PA.

Although this may be the Lancaster native’s first official release, Justin Baron is no stranger to making music. His parents, Lisa and Richard Baron, are a studied singer and studio drummer respectively, and his grandmother Lillian Linton frequented the stage of the Philadelphia Opera House; music is in his blood. As a boy, he casually accomplished prodigious renditions of Debussy, Bach and Beethoven, but it wasn’t until he completed high school that Justin really found the composer within.

While discovering his uncanny knack to seamlessly fuse soul, rock, jazz, pop, indie and classical influences, Baron quickly joined the heralded Philadelphia singer-songwriter scene. His sincere storytelling and ability to poetically paint movie-like scenes atop clever motifs caught the ears of Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Tozer (John Legend, John Mayer, Kanye West) who has offered invaluable guidance to the up-and-comer. After a few years of carefully crafting his songs and gaining momentum as a solo performer, Baron recruited a small army of local talent to throttle his music to the next level.

On Soundless Panic, Justin’s influences run the gamut from Ben Folds to Mozart to Radiohead. It is evident in every track that Justin has the potential not only for wide success in his music career, but longevity. From the intimate ballad, “Well Wishes,” to the relentlessly rocking title track “Soundless Panic”, and climaxing on the epically exhilarating “Lady Blue,” – the tragic tale of a little girl falling from her father’s arms at the top of a ferris wheel – there is not a second on the EP left unutilized by Baron’s immense talent.

Now equipped with an undeniably energetic live show, a small arsenal of soon-to-be hits, and an unfaltering drive to succeed, there is very little that stands in the way of Justin Baron and superstardom.

Justin Baron at Milkboy Coffee – Thursday, November 12 at 8:00pm
with special guest Is He Misery. Doors open at 7:30pm. Tickets are available at the door for $5. Milkboy Coffee is located at 2 East Lancaster Avenue, Ardmore, PA 19003. - Smooth Entertainment
