Justin Cosby, loving partner, dedicated friend, inquisitive music lover, co-founder of Inertia Music and Director of A&R, passed away June, 2021. He was 50 years old.

In 2000, Justin and best friend Ashley Sellers founded Inertia Music in a living room. Since those humble beginnings, the company grew to be one of the most well-respected record labels and distributors in Australia.

His inexhaustible, enduring love of music and the relationships he invested in, personal and professional, will be his legacy.

Vale Justin Cosby.
