Justin York

Justin Michael York (born November 26, 1983 in Los Angeles, California) was the guitarist of Christian rock band Tait. He joined the band in 2001 when he was barely 19 years old, replacing Pete Stewart. He subsequently left the band in 2006. In early 2007 he co-produced a rock album for the band Over Ashes, due to release in July.

When Justin was five years old, he and his family moved to Nashville, Tennessee where he grew up in a very Christian and musically gifted family. It was his father, Peter York (a music executive at Sparrow Records), himself a skilled guitarist, who taught Justin the instrument.

When he was a teen, Justin got his first major chance to play guitar professionally when Phil Joel (of the Newsboys) invited him to work on his solo album. Justin has had numerous opportunities since then, playing for Paul Alan, Sammy Ward, Steven Curtis Chapman, Joy Williams, and Rebecca St James.

Justin York just finished co-producing new American Christian Rock band Over Ashes with production partner Justin Glasco.

Justin also has a side-project called Cecil Adora, that he is involved in with Ryan Clark, and Van Beasley. As of June 2008 they are currently on hiatus.
