Justin Hines Releases "How We Fly" + Vehicle Of Change Tour

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ PAI Media) Justin Hines Releases "How We Fly" + Vehicle Of Change Tour - Benefiting Local Charities(New York, NY) Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Hines is ready to take the U.S. folk-pop scene by storm once again—this time with his new album, How We Fly, which will be available in limited edition colored vinyl, CD, online and limited edition illustrated picture book on June 25th, 2013 - with a performance at The Cutting Room in NYC benefiting the Red Cross. This will be the first of many shows on Justin's Vehicle of Change Tour - supporting local charities across the country.

The follow-up to his 2011 U.S. debut Days To Recall, his forthcoming release How We Fly features awe-inspiring songs that are not only representational of his profound songwriting, but are also the music of a generation that refuses to be divided by race, language and geographical barriers— from Africa to America, he's gained admirers wherever he goes. A stunning amalgamation of pop, country, folk and rock, Hines's music is introspective and heartfelt, his story, touching and inspirational. In How We Fly, he reminds us that we are unified in our fervor to overcome the struggles of life.

In the album's opening track, "Maybe When the Morning Comes" Hines is in search of a better tomorrow. He concludes with the retrospective lyric, "Maybe I've failed to see there's more to this world than me." He projects a similar sense of selflessness with the euphoric anthem, "We The People" (feat. Sierra Noble) while maintaining his tranquility in "If We're Wrong" and "In My Quiet Hour." His gift with words and rich, smoky, raspy voice echos Cat Stevens and James Taylor, with a subtle hint of Waylon Jennings and Woodie Guthrie. Whether reflecting on a love gone wrong ("Don't Mean Nothing") or capturing the bare beauty of lovers in the Dylanesque love song ("Love You That Way"), Hines wears his heart on his sleeves. His candor is manifested in "Lay My Burden's Down" a track that features thrilling percussion and string work alongside an entrancing chant that unveils his own aspirations: "I want to live like I'm not bound/Break my shackles down/Lay my burdens down."

Hines has had some burdens of his own. With a rare genetic joint condition called Larsen's syndrome, a disease that dislocates the joints and confines him to a wheelchair, he almost didn't record How We Fly due to the progression of his condition. With the help of medical professionals and massage therapy, which helped relieve pressure from his spine pressing on his diaphragm, he has prevailed. The experience is the inspiration behind the new album. "I kind of feel like everybody's kind of given me the foundation to metaphorically fly," Hines says of the support he's received. "The making of it truly was a very sort of beautifully challenging thing."

This summer, Hines will be traveling across North America performing in support of How We Fly, and dozens of local charities. This tour will be non-profit, where any money raised will go directly to the charities he is teaming up with. Check out his amazing story:!paulaamato/cs30
