Staten Island singer-songwriter Justy makes a grand entry this week with this vintage jazz-infused single titled “Expectations.”
The self-produced record captures the nostalgic lo-fil soul of the past with a modern edgy run. Justy delivers a mix of sultry melodies and a rap verse to keep things engaging thus showing her versatility across the board. She takes time to explore how love should be unconditional and free from bias, expectations or judgment.
Brooklyn born, Staten Island raised artist Justy began writing music at 12 years old. Fast forward 10+ years and the transparent singer/songwriter has blossomed into a unique and promising force in music. Heavily inspired by the works of artists such as J Dilla, Amy Winehouse, NoName, Anderson Paak, and Lauryn Hill, Justy continues to evolve, and incorporate traditional jazz elements into her music. In 2018, Justy’s refreshing sound caught the eye of British music powerhead Kwame Kwaten (also of D-Influence) who in turn took on the artist for a two single project which penned her notable tracks “Try,”(2018) and “L8R” (2019).
With vocals often referred to as “chill,” and “smooth,” Justy’s music is rooted in vulnerability. In 2020, she released her debut project Soul Food, the Precede which blends genres to deliver a lyrically impactful portrayal of love,loss, insecurities, and ambition. A self proclaimed “old soul,” Justy’s work continues showcase her growth as an independent artist. Her new single “Stringing Along” will be available on June 19th.
