My Story

My name is Justin Hines and I’m a singer/songwriter from Toronto, Canada. I have been very fortunate in my career and for that I’m very grateful. I never dreamed that I’d play the Pavorotti Theatre in Italy, the Kennedy Centre or at the Olympics in China! I’ve shared the stage with so many amazing artists including The Canadian Tenors, Ron Sexsmith, Sheila E. Looking back on the last few years I feel very blessed. That’s one of the reasons I’m here today to ask you to help me, help others.

Our Idea

As we put the finishing touches on my fourth studio album we thought this time around we should try do things a little differently. So instead of a regular tour playing concert halls and music venues we thought why not do a busking tour instead with any funds we raise going to a charity or organization in that area.

In my travels I have met and worked alongside several hundred charities and fundraising organizations. Together we’ve raised a lot of money for people in need. While planning our Vehicle of Change Tour we will reconnect with some of these organizations, draw up an intinerary and then begin our tour travelling from town to town and charity to charity.

Do you or someone you know have a cause that could use some funds? Let us know and we’ll try to incorporate you into one of the stops.

For anyone who decides to pledge to help us get the tour in motion, we have compiled a list of exclusives that you can see on the right hand side of the screen.

How Will We Allocate the Funds?

Simply put, the more money we raise, the more shows we can play and the more people we will help. The breakdown is as follows:

Goal: If we reach our goal we will play the first leg of our tour which covers 5000 kilometres (3100 miles).

200 Percent: If we reach 200 percent of our goal we will play the first and second leg of our tour covering approximately 11,000 km (6800 miles)

300 PERCENT: If we reach 300 percent of our goal (wouldn’t THAT be amazing!) we would play 3 legs of the tour covering 20,000 km (over 12,000 miles). This is a big milestone but I’d love to achieve it!

A Few of the Exclusives

How We Fly – The Illustrated Lyric Book
I’m collaborating with talented artist Gary Wein to create what is best described as an “inspirational coffeetable book”. The book will contain complete lyrics from every song on the new album, and each tune will be accompanied by a beautifully, colourful illustration inspired by the song. The book is in a format designed to give your soul an inspirational lift.

Collector’s Edition Vinyl
This one I’m very excited about! You’ll get a special collector’s edition version of the brand new album on limited edition multi-colored vinyl. The multicolored process means that each individiual album will be unique – no two the same!

Other Ways You Can Help

I understand that you work hard for your dollars. If you don’t feel like you’re in a position to contribute financially there are other ways you can get involved. We need people to spread the word and make noise about the campaign. You can email a link to the page, follow the project (by clicking blue button), post it on Facebook and Twitter, use the PledgeMusic share tools or call your friends and family the old fashioned way and tell them about it!

Thank you all so much for all of your support in the past and for taking time to read this today. I’m very grateful to each of you.
