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, Roosbeef etc.
Together with two school friends we formed Cadence. 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.
(Right after the release of his 20th album in April 2013 Justus decided to have a break. In 2014 he started the JustVera concept: collaborations with various singers. Check out http://justvera.com.)
