Canadian saxophonist Justin Massey is a contemporary artist currently based out of Morgantown, West Virginia. Passionate for new music, he strives to present modern music in all his performances, often performing on the entire battery of saxophones. To this end, Massey constantly seeks out new repertoire and enjoys working with composers in order to recreate their visions into live performances. Recently, he premiered two pieces by Bowling Green composer Jason Charney at the 2015 World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, France, featuring saxophone and live electronics. Massey continues to collaborate with several composers and premiered a new work by Jacob Sachs-Mishalanie for tenor saxophone and live electronics in the spring of 2017.
