“Pour It To Me Straight” is all of this, a quickly familiar set-up paves the way well for a song that skillfully and poetically details the scenes of its story. Justine has fused a brilliantly uplifting and progressive melody, with a warm and comforting musicality, and a story that seems just personal enough to connect, but also vague enough for listeners to make it their own. The perfect twang of country fuses perfectly with a soulful, jazz-infused backtrack. It’s a pleasure to know artists and songwriters are creating and performing music of this nature with such clear passion and a love for the process right now. It’s easy to hear why fans have taken to the rising star so notably in recent months. “Pour It To Me Straight” speaks volumes on behalf of the quality and content that’s to come.

Hey Justine Lynn! Welcome to BuzzMusic. We’re hypnotized by your voice! Have you had any professional training or having you honed your vocal style over time?
Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my music and the lovely words! I have been singing and have been lucky enough to have professional training since I was a young girl. This continued through school and led me to following my love and passion for music through my schooling after high school, with a diploma in Jazz and Contemporary Voice. A lot of my style has been influenced by the Blues artists I grew up listening to and then in my later years the Country influences of some of the greatest Country Artists in the industry.
What does your track “Pour It To Me Straight” mean to you? What inspired this song?
"Pour It To Me Straight" was the only song off my recent EP that I did not write, but was written by two fantastic writers, Doug Folkins and Troy Castellano. Doug sent me this song when we first met as he thought it may be a tune that I connected with. From the moment I heard the song, I could not move on from it. I found it had such a unique way or portraying emotion and a song I felt I needed/ wanted to sing. It has so many varying emotions in one song, anger, sadness, heartache, sassiness, empowerment and power all in one. I couldn't wait to record it and put some of my own emotions into this amazing song and I hope people feel the same when listening to it.
What do you hope your listeners take away from your music?
I hope that listeners get a sense of who I am as an artist and a person. In all my songs, whether written by me or another songwriter, they are a story that connect the listener to who I am and I release them typically to show a side of myself in that moment of life. I want to connect with anyone that loves to hear music, and to have a song that rings true in someones life, is the greatest feeling in the world!
What has been one of your most memorable or life-changing achievements so far?
While I have been so lucky in my career, the opportunity to sing at Carnegie Hall as part of an established choir, would have to be near the top of the list!
What are you working on through the end of 2019?
NEW MUSIC! Keep an eye out for new music from Justine Lynn that I cannot wait to release to the world! While I continue to write as much new content as possible, I look forward to releasing some of it soon, with a few sneaky projects at the same time! :)
