Justin Gambino, a songwriter, performer and recording artist from Houston, Texas, releases his new single 'Fighting On My Behalf'.
"Fighting on my behalf was one of those songs that just poured out of me within minutes. A time in my life where I found myself fighting a battle that was never intended to be mine. As the Lord reminded me that it was His battle and that He was fighting for me, that's when I put my complete trust in Him during that situation, knowing that He was fighting on my behalf. It's my hope and prayer that this song reaches those that need to hear it. That it would help change lives and turn people back to Jesus. To fully trust Him."
Gambino was born in Brazoria County, Texas, in the city of Lake Jackson. Residing there for ten years before moving to Angleton, TX. At the age of 17, and already playing the guitar and singing for about a year at this time, Gambino started to play and sing in his church Youth Group while leading worship. He then started to attend Brazosport College, Richwood in 2004, but later dropped out to start his eight year enlistment term with the U.S. Navy, where he served one tour in Iraq as a United States Seabee with NMCB (Naval Mobile Construction Battalion) Twenty Eight in 2007.
When faced with the decision to re-enlist or to leave the Navy, Gambino was very passionate about his music and believed that he would go somewhere with it. A record label out of Oklahoma helped him make his decision when they called him with a record deal to sign, several months after submitting the original, “Your Love Runs Deep” from the album “Shadows” by Shattered Silence (released Feb 4th, 2014).
Gambino then left the Navy to pursue his career in music, January of 2013. In 2017, Gambino left Shattered Silence as the lead vocalist/front man and embarked on a journey as a soloist. Since then, he has released a handful of singles as well as two EPs and a full length album.
Gambino is a committed follower of Jesus Christ and desires to write music, not for a certain audience, but music that anyone can relate to in their own life.
Gambino cites Jon Foreman, Switchfoot, Needtobreathe, Judah & The Lion, Ben Rector, Dustin Kensrue, David Crowder and Dave Matthews Band, just to name a few, as some of his musical influences. Gambino's songwriting tends to be very deep, soulful and something that tugs on the heart.
