JUSTINA “LAST ONE STANDING”With one foot in a powder-pink bedroom, the other in a grown-up world, Jersey Grrl wrestles with vulnerability wrapped in twentysomething hormones and leads a spry band through her back pages. While we binge, Justina purges — or maybe we purge and she binges (on Anna Nalick’s splendor). Naked-in-front-of-the-crowd lyrics collide with tunecraft that would make McCartney blush.
When the diminutive autodidact slips into something uncomfortable — a concealed track of elegiac independence, where she emotes against lonely swirls of piano — Justina not only demands attention, she commands it. Posted by Damienat 3:18 PM
I am so excited to announce the release of my new EP “Last One Standing”! This journey has been such an amazing experience for me. I had the opportunity to work with so amazingly talented people!
So what have I been up to ? Well for one, I went to Georgia and filmed a music video. My brother and director, Vincent Carubia, did an amazing job! Me and my mom worked our asses off on wardrobe, every single day we were there. It was down to the wire and we were still sewing the black trim and lace on the tango dresses. Julio taught me some tango choreography, I only had about 2 hrs in the rehearsal studio to learn the dance. I was getting so frustrated with myself, but it sank in after a few days of not doing it. Despite the normal stresses, it was really a blast, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! I made alotta new friends in Georgia (Jorge, Julio, Mandee, Paul, Jasmine, Bryan, Karina)…You guys made it seriously a BLAST! So now I’m back, and since then I have been rehearsing with the full band. I can’t wait to start playing live shows again, and I REALLY can’t wait for the CD release party… It will be in January sometime, so all the holidays will be outta the way 😀 I have some other interesting stuff goin on right now, but I think it’d be best if I kept it hush hush till it’s certain…I don’t wanna jinx anything !! I will update soon 😀 -Justina
Hey Folks, It’s been awhile!! Yes I am still alive and well, and I am so excited to bring you a documentary very soon…. It documents the making of my music video for my new single “Formula”. It also gives alittle background as to how I started my music, and the struggles I’ve gone through, and the hopes I still have for my career….
I can’t wait for you all to see the documentary in it’s final form, but for now here is a little trailer I put together of some footage I had… The whole thing should be out sometime this spring (which will be directed & produced by Vincent Carubia)…enjoy the trailer for now ! Justina xoxo
Here is some behind the scenes footage from the tango sequence for the “Formula” video. Ryan O’hara is the DP, my brother Vincent Carubia directed it, and Julio Penagos is the Latin Luva who choreographed the whole dance, and the dude I dance with in the vid as well, My mom helped me with wardrobe, she did an AMAZING job with those dresses….I had a BLAST making this vid, and I thank everyone who was involved with it. I wish I had better footage of this, but my camera crapped out the day before. 🙁 Justina xoxo
Hey Guys! Here are some pics of the first day of production of my first music video ever for my new single “Formula”!! Also below is a little video snippet of some behind the scenes footage of us shooting the alley scene… It was a lot of fun! Can’t wait for the final product 🙂 Justina xoxo
