Great news! Justin Serrao released ‘Are You Lonely’ last month as the first single from his brand new EP ‘One Year Warning’ which was released on Friday. The EP features 4 incredible singles that can be streamed or downloaded here.
When you hear his name in passing, you don’t immediately think talented singer-songwriter only, but you think talented singer-songwriter, live performer, strategic networker and successful music business entrepreneur! He describes his music as a fusion of acoustic and country rock.
Justin started recording the EP back in November 2017 at High Seas Studios in Johannesburg with Jacques Du Plessis and Gavin Flaks, and is beyond excited for everyone to hear what’s been created. Listening to the songs and asking what that the idea behind the 4-track EP was, Serrao answered “The songs are a part of my life and I guess, the 4 seasons throughout the year. My experiences over the past year. From falling in love to ending the year with a broken heart, there’s so much in each song that are just hints of the whole story. I called it ‘One Year Warning’ because of the lessons I learnt in the past year. I guess you could call it a warning.”
‘One Year Warning’ includes unheard singles ‘Hard Time Loving’ – an upbeat feel-good country single, ‘I’m Not There’ – a catchy foot-tapping country/rock track and ‘Walk Away’ – the slow acoustic love-song outro to a brilliant EP.
“For the fans I really hope they love it. It’s been 2 years since my last release and I’m sure they’re gonna love the songs. It’s close to the heart and I think that’s what they wanna hear.” says Justin

I listened to the EP and I must say that I found it very refreshing and generally upbeat – it was just the thing that I needed to improve my mood on a Monday. Thanks Justin.
