Welcome to my official website. Here you’ll learn more about me.Justine
HOW DID IT ALL START?
Justine was born and raised in Żywiec, Poland. She grew up backstage thanks to her Dad who is a sound engineer and concert organizer. At every concert, she would sit on the cases behind the scenes and dream that one day she’ll sing for the crowds as well.
At the age of six, she started playing the violin, but classical music was not her thing. She finished primary music school and escaped into dance and music of artists such as Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, and Beyoncé.
CLASH OF THE CHOIRS
In her senior year of high school, Jj took part in the casting for the TV show „Clash of the Choirs“. It was three months of very hard work but she had learned a lot from that experience. Thanks to the program Jj met her teachers who helped her develop her vocal skills.
Three years later, in 2014, Jj became the semifinalist of „The Voice of Poland“. In the show, she sang such songs as “Mamma Knows Best” by Jessie J, “Why Don’t You Love Me” by Beyoncé and “Hurt” by Christina Aguilera. It was a big break in her career. She decided to take up music and she has started to write her own songs.
A year after The Voice, in 2015 she reached the final of the International Songwriting Competition. There have been over 18,000 entries from 120 countries. Justine’s song “Run After Me” was judged by Tom Waits, Ke$ha, Lorde, Avicii, Pat Metheny, Bill Whiters, Boyz II Men and more. Finally, the song occurred among the top 16 songs in a Pop category with an Honorable Mention. Soon after this, she won the 2nd place in the Unsigned Only Music Competition 2016, Pop/Top40 category. There have been about 6000 entries from over 100 countries.
Now she sings, writes songs, cooperates with great musicians from all over the world and continues her music education.

BESIDE THE MUSIC
Dance! Especially Jackson Style, Hip-Hop, Electro and Dancehall but above all she loves to improvise.
Graphic design! One of the most useful of all Justine's hobbies. Because somebody has to design all those covers, logos, youtube thumbnails and websites, right?
Photography! Traveling without the camera makes no sense.
Learning! Justine loves learning new things: new languages, new songs, people’s names, dates, and all things that are connected with music, movies, art, music production and mastering.

The secret is to listen to more music and less advice.
Have courage and be kind.
Of course, it is happening inside your head, but why on Earth should that mean that it is not real?
