Originally from Guildford, Justine is an ‘honorary’ Yorkshire lass having lived and trained in Leeds. After training classically with Jean Allister at the City of Leeds College of Music she then switched to musical theatre studying for a postgraduate diploma at The London School of Musical Theatre.
Her stunning soprano voice, with its purity of tone and emotional warmth, has earned her the affectionate title of ‘songbird’. Justine has headlined on the QE2, Royal Caribbean, Azamara, Regent and Seabourn cruises and her journey has led to her being invited to perform at many top London venues including the Cafe Royal, Dorchester Hotel, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall, plus various concert halls and theatres across the UK.
Favourite moments include performing at Royce Hall, Los Angeles; singing the role of Cosette alongside Frances Ruffelle and Ruthie Henshall in excerpts from ‘Les Miserables’ at ‘The Inspiration Awards for Women’ on behalf of Breakthrough Breast Cancer at Cadogan Hall, London; entertaining the troops while fronting the Queens Division Big Band; featured roles in the UK tours of ‘Kiss Me, Kate’ and ‘The Masters of the House’; as well as popping up on screen in Tim Burton’s film of ‘Sweeney Todd’.
