About Me

E7#9

Justin Lyons, best known as GuitarSlayer, is a Dallas-based guitarist and producer, who has dedicated the greater part of the last three decades to harnessing the healing power of music. He draws inspiration from a lineage of tradition and love, and while allowing God to be his guiding force.

Intrigued by his father’s infatuation with the guitar, and his mother’s molding and direction of how to approach the guitar, Justin Lyons would follow in their footsteps. With his roots firmly planted in the Gospel and Blues scenes for the longest time, today, Justin has branched out into RnB, Jazz, Hip Hop and even K-Pop. The sum of his influences continues to grow along with his notoriety as an accomplished musician.

Above all, Justin seeks to create a vibe that evokes introspective feelings of self-expression, emancipation from mental slavery, self awareness and self love. Everything he creates comes from a place with pure intention, and his music serves as a vehicle through which he can express his stories, his travels, all while spreading the word of God and love.

He has built up a formidable reputation as a producer and musician for his attention to detail, and his hybrid format of creating and arranging. For Justin, story precedes everything. It’s the fundamental pillar from which the spirit of a song can exist, and with this ethos he adapts a production and composition style that strives to serve the raw, honest message of each track.


Justin has toured and produced for artists Chrisette Michele, Toni Braxton, Mindless Behavior, Tank, Tamela Mann, Vivian Green, Norman Brown, Lil Wayne, JoiStaRR, Bobby Brown, New Edition and Lecrae. In the K-Pop world, he has also worked with BlackPink, G-Dragon, and BigBang to name just a few.

Outside of music, Justin has collaborated with notorious designer and contemporary footwear brand, Andrew Kayla. He also has TV & Film in the works with staging to begin, Soring of 2020.

Justin has a solo album titled ‘Lost’, which was released in 2017 independently and met with positive reviews. His last production project under JRJM was in 2018 in collaboration with David Mann Jr and Jevon Hill, a single titled ‘Us Against The World’. Today, he is preparing a brand new single for MyBlock Inc’s Artist , JoiStarr, produced by his production team JRJMusiq. It will include production partner RJ
Simpson Jr., under the umbrella of GuitarSlayer Entertainment. This single is set for release October 2019.

Going forward, Justin is also prepping the subsequent two installments of his three-part album titled ‘And’ / ‘Found’, which will be out for release in 2020.

“An unforeseen R&B musician continues to defy all odds. Justin Lyons, also known as “The GuitarSlayer” is a musician like no other. Lyons has evolved from a self-taught child guitarist to a KPOP sensation.”

Brionna Taylor, Afropunk

“The man can absolutely shred… he could command the stage during a heavy metal show let alone a hip-hop show.”
