Beatles, Beatles and Beatles. Genesis, The Police, Joe Jackson, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Ian Dury, Gentle Giant, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Yes, Joe Satriani, Stevie Wonder. Those were just a few of my school day heroes. And some still are. Together with KT Tunstall, U2, Snow Patrol, Foo fighters and many others.

Played bass in a band for some years when I left school. We composed our own stuff, did some gigs, had fun and eventually split up. Back in The Seventies of the second millenium.

I married my wife, we raised two lovely kids and I embarked on my (direct) marketing career. In 2004 I picked up on creating music again. A dear friend introduced me to Reason and ever since I'm hooked. It's all the software I use and need to express my ideas. Without any theoretical musical background. I play it all. By ear. Only limited by my own creativity.

Over the last years I published 20 virtual CDs online. All covered by my alter ego Justus ( My very own Reason-music, with some of my vocals on the latest albums. But I'm very much aware of the limitations of my vocals. So that's why I started JustVera: my music and various singers. My goal is to record/produce awesome rock/pop. Just for the fun of it. And if commercial possibilities pop up: fine. Then we'll take it from there. I think my clips ( and and mp3's ( tell a lot about the range of styles JustVera is covering.

As for the perfect future, I really would like to build songs together. Preferably with lots of mutual feedback, where musicians would not only provide vocals, but also the melodies and lyrics. And real instruments of course. But these kind of collaborations surely have to grow.

Can you relate to my kind of music? Would you like to give it a try? Join the JustVera family? I really am looking forward to hear from you.

My Showcase Tracks
'Cow NOW' probably is the best pop song I produced in years. Period. With a little help from my friends Robert Saint Denis, Tom H., Pepino Lorenzo and last but not least: Ian T.: some Team...
Slash and burn... Thank you so much, Nuno, Chris and JeanLui for your really awesome contributions. Some convincing and powerful protest against the destruction of our rainforest. Share and care!
Once upon a time thousands of cenotes were created all over Mexico?s Yucatan Peninsula. They were revered by the ancient Mayans as sacred wells. Now, 66 million years later there's 'The Deepest Blue'. Quite a special song, full of groove, originality, surprise and mystery.Thanks to you, a bunch of top league Kompoz musicians. Thank you, Bill, Jean Lui, Rob, Joey and Mike. I owe you one.
What if? You'll never know... Perhaps listening to 'Loved you enough' will help though. Contemplative words by Joel Sattler, performed by IanT. Backed up by NunoW with some convincing guitar parts. Here's your answer;-).
We all know Jen. I knew she could do an amazing job with my track. (And she did!-). Heidar also is a veteran. Although he isn't as active as he used to be: he still IS amazing. And there's this new kid on the block: Wolfgang Nuno -or the other way around- on lead and rhythm guitars. A great bunch of musicians! (So there's the secret of 'Ballerina'...)
My Steinway Grand and Kari DeNeal. And brilliant lyrics by Tez Katajala. That's all it takes. Sometimes miracles just happen. Pure Magic. Sheer Beauty. 'Descendant': I rest my case.
This poppy tune goes way back. In fact it was sound asleep on Kompoz for almost two years. Then Todd W. came up with lyrics and vocals. Spot on! Dan Rosati added some brilliant saxophone and we're done. 'No need to be scared': a wolf in hamsters clothes.
'Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible' (Frank Zappa). When I heard Christine Linge's performance of Mike Mantecon's lyrics I stopped breathing for a moment. 'Fit the mold'. Sheer beauty. So I put her voice in the center and just added some arrangements to create some extra tension. And then I discovered Jannik Gade's acoustic guitar. Just amazing...
Steve Winwood did it once. Oasis wasn't bad. But 'Roll with it' by JustVera is something else... BrotherRat at his best. Both lyrically -parental advisory- and vocally. With the help of liljoe6string and blaze345 of course. Three minutes of powerpop with a wink. Just love it.
'Drops of Rain' is the heartbreaking story of the tragic loss of John Heavern's little sister. Words that cut, recited by himself. The singing part is convincingly performed by Louis Marchena. JustVera with a bleeding heart.
