They say having connections in the industry can be invaluable, but connections only get you so far in a blind audition on The Voice Season 2.
In 2008, Justin Hopkins spent nine months playing the guitar in the house band on The Carson Daly Show.
The Voice host admitted he hogged Justin’s talents, but told him it was time to share those talents with the judges.
But Justin started performing long before Carson’s show. In 2004 he formed the band Justin Hopkins & The Guilt in California. He recorded his first album, Here Goes Nothing Vol. 1, in 2008 and his second album, We Are Where We Came From, followed soon after.
He took to The Voice stage to prove he was more than just a guitarist and was picked up by judge Cee Lo Green.
Justin, it looks like Carson Daly will be announcing your music and not the other way around this time!
