Hi! I’m Justine and I am a singer/songwriter from Southern California. In my sets, I play a blend of originals and covers. My covers range from John Lennon, Ingrid Michaelson and Fleetwood Mac to Katy Perry, Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys. If I were to label my original music, I would say it’s folk/pop with a touch of rock. My music and voice get compared to Joni Mitchell, whose music I love.
My specialty is private concerts.
If you give me advance notice, I can tailor my set to your event, whether you and your guests prefer more covers than originals, an emphasis on your favorite genre of music, more or less audience interaction, etc.
I look forward to working with you!
One word to describe Justine, "Amazing!" You are truly a talented singer/songwriter and you have such a sweet personality. Your voice is beautiful! Thank you for performing at my husband's birthday celebration. All my guests raved about you and thoroughly enjoyed the mini concert in my backyard. It was a night that we will never forget!
Price Range: Contact for rates
Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
Insurance: $1,000,000/$2,000,000 Aggregate
What to Expect
I have up to 3 hours of performance material and can customize my set to your event (like if you prefer more covers than originals, more upbeat songs than slow, blocks of performance time rather than playing straight through). I will bring my own sound equipment and can even provide power if requested. I will interact with the audience as much as you like! And if you so desire, depending on the event, we all could end up being having a sing-along. :-)
