Justin Lo (側田, born 羅定偉 on July 1, 1976 in New York, United States) is a Hong Kong singer, composer and record producer.
Lo was born in New York and followed his parents to Hong Kong when he was two years old. While in Hong Kong, he studied at St Paul's Co-educational Primary School and St. Paul's Co-educational College. In 1989, Lo went to Seattle, Washington, in the United States to further his studies. He spent two years in the University of Washington and finished his degree in Graphics Design at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island in 1999. After graduation, he worked as a web designer at Yahoo! in Santa Clara, California.
Lo grew up in a family where music has always played an important role. His uncle, Ted Lo, is a famous music arranger and record producer in Hong Kong. In addition, Justin was a member in the Hong Kong Children's Choir and he developed vast interest in music as he was growing up. In 1981, composer Joseph Koo Ka Fai invited Justin, aged 5 at the time, and his younger sister Roxane to sing in a commercial for Barbie. Lo also sang in a TV commercial of AXE dish detergent.
For a while Lo did some freelance design work while sending numerous demo tapes to record and label companies. In 2003, his uncle Ted Lo introduced him to Mark Lui, one of the best pop-composers and producers in Hong Kong. Recognizing the talent in Justin, Lui signed him to his music producing company On Your Mark Ltd and Lo officially began his musical career in Hong Kong.
In 2005, he performed in an a cappella section in Ku's Solid Gold Hits Concert. His outstanding performance was validated by Mr. Paco Wong from Gold Label Music Ltd. and Wong signed him up as a singer. His plugged songs "好人", "Erica", "命硬" and "我有今日" (he wrote the latter three) were received very positive responses. He is considered as one of the leading contenders of this year's New Male Artist Award.
His debut CD album Justin was released on November 29, 2005. Over half of the songs found in this album are written by him. It was a hit: 15,000 copies were sold on the first day. Sales reached 25,000 copies on December 20, 2005.
