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.
