Justin DeHart is an avid performer of contemporary musical styles - from classical to pop, and from world to electronic. DeHart’s musical resume includes performances with the San Diego symphony, pipa master Wu Man, and various pop legends, including Cheap Trick. His debut solo album entitled Strange Paths on Innova Recordings (works by Brian Ferneyhough, Iannis Xenakis, Michael Gordon and Stuart Saunders Smith) was lauded as “mesmerizing” by Percussive Notes for his “palette of sounds and intricate weaving of lines.” DeHart was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship for percussion studies in India (2001-02) and his talents have been featured at concerts around the globe. As a California native, he holds a B.M. from CSU Sacramento, a M.F.A. from California Institute of the Arts, and a D.M.A. from UC San Diego. He has solo, chamber and contemporary recordings on MCA, Sony, Mode, Innova, Sono Luminus, Albany, New World, HatHut, Populist, Sub Pop, and Skunk Records. DeHart currently resides in Christchurch, New Zealand, and teaches music at the University of Canterbury. www.justindehart.com
