Justy is an independent musician & singer/songwriter from Staten Island, New York inspired by the likes of J Dilla, Amy Winehouse, NoName, and Lauryn Hill.
Recorded between 2017-2019, debut album Soul Food is a culmination of soul searching, heartbreak, loss, self-awareness, and renewal embodied in a musical composition which captures both the artistic and human growth – a journey that began 10+ years ago when she began writing music at the age of 12. The record is a smooth, soulful and lush blending of hip hop, R&B, soul, jazz and pop, and latest single ‘Love Letter, Pt.3’ (feat. Huas) is very much of the same variety and encapsulates all that Justy has to offer in three minutes. It is a slick, smooth and super soulful marrying of lush hazy tones with seductive grooves. ‘Love Letter, Pt.3′ smoulders with emotion and drips with rich melodies as a gentle languid strum joins dusty beats, distant fading parps of brass amid a dusky air. Amid the woozy vibes and hushed melodic cooing in the back, the composed, smooth and honeyed vocals add a layer of melancholy alongside Huas’ contribution. A stunning intro to both Justy and the new record.
