EDMONTON — A St. Albert man is making a name for himself in the world of music, nearly two years after losing his brother in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

Twenty-year-old Justin Wack recently completed a music program in Vancouver, secured a manager, and is soon heading to Los Angeles.

He’s accomplished it all—without his sight.

“As someone who is totally blind, the technology that is there is finally starting to put us on an equal playing field with sighted peers,” said Wack, who composes all of his music on his laptop.

He started music lessons as a toddler, where he learned he has perfect pitch. He also makes his own beats, writes songs and sings.

“I was kind of like a baby Canadian Simon Cowell because in my music class, all the three-year-olds were singing in the wrong key and three-year-old me did not like it that much.”
