Feeling a bit camera shy


Musical talent runs in Justine's family. "My grandfather played in country music bands his whole life playin' pedal steel. And my father's side of the family owns and runs a country music bar on Long Island called Matty T's."
Growing up singing country music at Matty T's was Justine first performance experience. But her love of music came from somewhere deeper. "I had A.L.L. when I was about 2 years old. It's a type of cancer of the blood in children. We would have to pack up our car early early in the morning and drive about 2 hours in rush hour traffic to get me to the hospital for treatments. And I'd just sing along to the radio in my little car seat. That's just what I did."
By the time Justine was eight, she was performing yearly at Matty T's Leaukemia Benefit. By the age of twelve she was teaching herself guitar and piano. "It was then that I heard bands like 'Bush' and 'Counting Crows'. And then I found people like Jewel and Alanis Morrisette. I started thinking, 'You mean I can put all of my little poems and thoughts to music?!' I was blown away".
Justine started frequenting the open mics around her hometown and soon had a weekly place to try out new songs at The Village Pub. "It was great to be able to get up and play what I had just written that week. It felt really organic."
Set on Berklee College of Music since the age of fourteen, Justine is a 6th semester student majoring in songwriting and music business. "I want to learn all I can so I don't get screwed". Her Lyric Writing portfolio was chosen as the class model and is posted on the class website. She just finished an internship at Warner/Chappell in Nashville during the Fall, and hopes to continue finding new music, writing new songs, and promoting her art in every way possible.
"And I'm always open to new cowriters, so if you're interested, call me".
