  1. Review by Jacob S.

    Based on a neo-soul style beat with a bassline and a chord progression I had produced, I got a stellar song back from Justis, who wrote lyrics, verse melody and chorus, and recorded a great-sounding song. Awesome! Will absolutely recommend Justis and I hope to work with her again in the near future since she is a joy to work with all in all.

  2. Review by Jacob S.

    Justis is supertalented, has a great, unique voice, a very high sense of quality and returned with a complete song; lyrics, verses, choruses, dubs etc in a week. What a fantastic experience that was, so thank you so much Justis and thank you SoundBetter for a great platform that makes this possible.
