Justin Lo (側田, born July 1, 1976 in New York, United States of America) is a Hong Kong singer, composer and producer.
Nicknamed "Teen", born in Syracuse, New York and raised in Hong Kong until he turned 12. While in Hong Kong, he studied at St Paul's Co-educational Primary School and St Paul's Co-educational College. Lo immigrated to Seattle, Washington, United States of America in 1989. He spent two years in the University of Washington and finished his degree in Graphics Design at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD)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 music 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.
Lo felt the work at Yahoo! was boring, hence the decision to move back to Hong Kong to write music.
Sports: Basketball, Tennis, Skateboarding, Snowboarding, Bowling, Golf.
For a while Lo did some freelance design work while sending numerous demo tapes to record and label companies. In 2003, his uncle Ted 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. He produced the album Day & Night for Janice (衛蘭) and wrote two songs "大雄" and "傷追人" for Leo Ku.
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. So far, his plugged songs "好人", "Erica", "命硬" and "我有今日" (he wrote the latter three) 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.
He will hold his debut concert in the Hong Kong Coliseum on March 26, 2006. The tickets are sold out in just within 10 minutes at February 13 and thus one more concert will be held on April 19, ].   
Lo's goal is to be an Asia-wide recognized producer in five years.
Justin recently released his second album two days before his debut concert "One Good Show" in the Hong Kong Coliseum. It was released in March 24, 2006.
