Bio

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 (http://worldofjustus.com/). 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 (https://www.youtube.com/JustVeradotcom and https://vimeo.com/justvera) and mp3's (https://soundcloud.com/justvera) 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
Select
Pop. With a twist. Or two. Thank you so much Elizabeth Auzan (lyrics) and Kris Pride (vocals) for this wolf in sheep's clothing: 'Spot the wolf'.
Select
The second version of 'Anytime you need me', based on Patricia Kigilcim's lyrics. With awesome sweet vocals from EllenDXY. Of course with the groovy drums of Bill McCarthy. And the inimitable lead guitar of The Joey. A truly epic solo. Anyway, enjoy this original lovesong. I do.
Select
Great lyrics? Great vocals? Great track? I'll leave the judgement up to you. All I can say it's JustVera. 100%. Definitely. (Thank you Mike Mantecon and Tarjei Skarlund!-).
Select
'Jump before you toch the ground': powerdrums-Chris, powervocals-Jeff, powerbass-Jordi, powerguitars-Mark, powerlyrics-Tez. SheerPower. JustVera.
Select
JustVera stands for remarkable pop. 'Get away' definitely is a song which fits this description. Thanks to Amanda Moubarak, Lloyd Plueschow and Tarjei Skarlund. Life's too short for lifeless music, my friends.
Select
'River of Black' by Alexander K., Jordi Ribas, Todd Vierra and of course Rick Farrell. Clenched energy. Popful power. Another side of JustVera.
Select
'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...
Select
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!
Select
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.
Select
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'...)
