Born of Scars performed at the Bamboozle
Festival at Giants Stadium in May, Recently opened for Fuel, has currently finished recording with legendary producers Steve Haigler (The Pixies, Fuel) and Mike Watts of Vu Du Studios and released a video for “The Rain”.

Born of Scars is a female fronted, Modern Hard Rock band that brings together 4 of the finest musicians in the New York City area. The bands music was described by one industry insider as: “Aggressive, well written, soul chilling songs with a fresh approach to Modern Hard Rock that brings together all of its elements with skill and fluency. Its guaranteed no matter who you are, or what genre you prefer; you will enjoy Born of Scars!”

“this band just writes solid tunes that are catchy. The 7 tunes I got on this disc were all good to great tunes. The production is solid and I think for the most part the band have their own sound. I could easily see this band getting signed to a label and selling some serious units. Good stuff and not many bands doing this style and glad to see this wasn’t some FM garbage modern rock band. “
– Chris Forbes, Metalfocefanzine.com (Feb 27, 2011)

Born of Scars is currently touring regionally to promote their latest release “Minor to Major”. Though early response to the CD has been very positive the band feels record company support could hurl the release to the top of the charts. Evidence of the CD’s early success is that “The Rain” has already been placed in the soon to be released film “Serina, A Vampire’s Tale.”

Born of Scars has been thrilling audiences with their electrifyingly inspired performances filled with energy, passion, and amazing music. Work has already begun on the next CD and plans are being made for national touring. A true diamond in the rough; Born of Scars is not just a band, but a business organization that sees its product going global in the near future!

Some call me…. THA JUST, JUSTO, General JUST, THA GENERAL, JP Shines and A few others I can’t think of. But, they all came from one original name given to me long ago – JUSTIFY. Which to me means True. I don’t keep it real I keep it TRUE. From that way of livin and thinkin people called me Justify at a young age.
I have lived in many states throughout the US.
I am origianlly from North Carolina. But, I mainly grew up in the Northwest region of the United States. The Northwest consists of the cities and towns surrounding Seattle, WA and Portland, OR. When I was not in the Northwest, I was back home In Cackalack. This way, I never forgot my roots and always remembered where home was. When I was not living in Carolina, I was spending most the summer and winter times of my life back home in NC.
Most, if not all, of my family is from the East Coast and Down South. But, I have friends that I consider like family, All over the world. This is why I say JUSTIFY Worldwide. Cause I feel a part of me is somewhere is the world that I cannot physically be.
My music is a reflection of my life and soul. I write what I feel. My music expresses the many emotions that I’ve experienced. Some good, some bad, but All of me. ALL JUSTO. JUST keepin’ it true. And to me keepin’ it true, means to keep it JUST. You may not like all of my music. But, You gonna feel at least one song. I put all of me into it, how can you not?

Like life, I am not one sound nor one feeling. Can’t put nor keep me in a box. Sorry. I talk about MY life. Happy, Sad, up, and Down. Everything. I try to relate to people. Have to cause that’s who I write for. People. In the real world, we are all different going through different things in our lives. So I speak on different matters, subjects , and topics. It’s only right, that I try to touch as many as I can. This way, we can learn from our differences and find similarities. A similarity of understandin and respect to build into a better reality. My music, is a symbol of that reality. Call it a Wish, a Dream, Hope , or just In different from the norm. Whatever “IT” is. It is what inspires me. Ignites a spark to fuel my motivation. I believe, We can learn from each other. We should. We just gotta try. Don;t have to agree or like everything. Just learn and respect. That is what my music represents. It’s who I am and What I do.
I am the Audacity, Attitude, and Voice Of Music.
JUSTO !!!!
Keep It JUST.

Brian Setzer


Brian Setzer has made a career of bucking trends, going against the grain, ignoring popular culture, and blowing people away with his innovative work. As a teenager, Setzer drew inspiration from 50’s rockabilly, fused it with new wave punk, and created a worldwide phenomenon with his band Stray Cats. Always pushing the boundaries, he then created the 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, sold millions of albums, won three Grammys, redefined Christmas music, and toured the planet many times over. He is one of the world’s most dynamic and respected guitarists and has a best-selling, extensive line of elite Gretsch signature model guitars bearing his name to prove it.


Setzer just completed his new record entitled Songs From Lonely Avenue. The album features 13 new original songs all written by Setzer. Nine of the tracks feature orchestrations by the legendary Frank Comstock (Doris Day, Sonny Dunham, Benny Carter, Judy Garland, not to mention the Rocky & Bullwinkle theme!). Inspired by the attitude and tension of the film noir soundtracks from the ‘40’s and ‘50’s, Setzer set out to create songs that carry a classic cinematic mood that’s missing from today’s musical landscape. With a propulsive rhythm, an ominous minor key, wicked good instrumental solos and the familiar character of the Devil up to his old tricks, the opening track “Trouble Train” sets the mood for the whole album. Throughout the rest of the album, thugs prowl the street, young couples dance the night away in New York, hearts are broken, and lives are taken, all over pitch-perfect melodies and arrangements. Sit back, close your eyes, and allow yourself to be taken on a journey of crime, passion, heartbreak, and torment on the seedier side of town.


This movie opens in black and white …


It’s late one cold December night. The city sleeps, but legendary guitarist, singer and pioneering bandleader Brian Setzer has opened his eyes. Something of whatever he was dreaming lingers and leads him to get up, turn on an old Sears cassette recorder, pick up his guitar, lay down a few snippets of ideas, grab a pen, scratch some words on a piece of paper … and then fall back into bed.


As it was, Setzer was puzzled by the scene that greeted him the next morning. He didn’t remember scribbling those lines that stared up at him from his coffee table. But when he pushed Play and heard what he’d laid down on that midnight tape, the spark of invention, long dark, flashed back to life – and with that, his most ambitious and evocative project in years was underway. Those first notes, those shards of lyric, marked the birth of “Passion of the Night,” the first of the 13 original tracks he would write and lay down for Songs From Lonely Avenue. The rest followed quickly: “Dimes in the Jar,” “Love Partners in Crime,” “Kiss Me Deadly,” boom, boom, boom, each one bursting to life in spurts of lyric and riff at any and all hours of the day and night. Looking back, Setzer is still mystified by it all. “I can’t really explain it,” he insists. “Just when I think I might never write another song, the words and music come into my head and won’t stop. Once I have a focus, the songs start coming to me real easily. It’s as if the dam’s been broken and the ideas start flowing.”


But a theme wove through this stream-of-conscious creativity. The snaky beat and saloon croon of “King of the Whole Damn World,” the finger-snap jive of “Gimme Some Rhythm Daddy,” the smoky crawl and roadhouse guitar of “My Baby Don’t Love Me Blues,” the ear-opening flamenco-flavored virtuosity of “Elena,” the sly genre juggling of “Mr. Jazzer Goes Surfin’” and “Mr. Surfer Goes Jazzin’” – every moment of every track beams like a pinpoint spot into the darkness of a film noir classic, casting new shadows even as it brings Setzer’s extraordinary instrumental and vocal gifts into the light.


That light transforms this movie from black and white into spectacular splashes of color, illuminated by some of the most electrifying, sophisticated and yet emotionally raw horn charts being written anywhere today. As Setzer saw it, there was only one arranger up to the challenge of evoking the big-band scores of half a century ago in a language that would connect immediately with the contemporary listener – and that was Frank Comstock, with whom Brian had worked previously on his Wolfgang’s Big Night Out album.


“Frank is the only one left,” Setzer insists of his collaborator, whose credits include music for the TV series Adam 12, Dragnet and Rocky & Bullwinkle, along with big-band masterpieces by Les Brown, Benny Carter, Stan Kenton and other giants of the ‘40’s and ‘50’s. “He helped invent this sound and, at 87 years old, he’s still got it.”


And so does the widening world of Setzer fans, from those who slammed to the Stray Cats in British clubs years ago to families who flocked last Christmas to the BSO’s annual holiday shows. All of these diverse audiences meet on Lonely Avenue – a place that, thanks to Setzer, is lonely no more.
