Places to go, people to see

Up-and-coming blue-eyed soul singer Justyn Matthew has been quoted, “I remember my parents picking me up, placing me on the coffee table so I could put on a concert at family gatherings. I remember the joy of discovering Stevie and Marvin and Donny; the hours upon hours of practicing riff after riff, making sure I’d hit the right notes.” Now with a pro career, he joins Jon B, Shai, H-Town and ChicoDeBarge in “A Love Affair.”
