Nashville-based producer, singer, songwriter, composer and recording artist Justine Blazer has been taking the musical world by storm — earning seven #1 singles on various independent charts. Her unique style is infused with a hint of Detroit soul and modern vibes. She is a member of The Recording Academy/GRAMMYs, Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music. Having opened for the likes of Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Lee Brice, Kathy Mattea, Regis Philbin, Lonestar and more, Blazer has received endorsements from Luna Guitars, Dean Guitars, Ram Trucks, Chrysler Incorporated and more. 

Her popular single, “Good Trouble,” had its video premiere on CMT in the fall of 2021. She was up for six nominations last year at the Josie Music Awards, winning Best Rock Song of the Year (songwriter). She was a Grammy contender in seven categories: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Producer of the Year, Best Arrangement, Best New Artist, Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance.

Blazer received nine nominations for this year’s Josie Music Awards, which will take place on October 23rd at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN. She released her debut blues album, Girl Singing the Blues, in August. There are ten original tracks on the album, featuring collaborations and duets with BB King’s daughter, Claudette King, Grammy-winner Larry Mitchell, Billboard charting composer Kitt Wakeley, multi-award winning recording artist Natalie Jean, Gospel singer Kezia Alford, trumpet player Syreeta Thompson, Detroit blues guitarist Kerry Adams, sax player Suzanne Grzanna, award-winning Texas artist Damian Wyldes, and more.

“Girl Singing the Blues is my eighth studio album and I feel like this is some of my best work to date. I produced, mixed and mastered this project in its entirety. Being originally from Detroit, I grew up around the blues, R&B and Motown. My parents listened to all the greats — Aretha Franklin, Martha Reeves, Mitch Ryder, The Temptations, Etta James and more! I actually started off in a blues band in Detroit with my brother in law, blues guitarist, Rex Mason. We actually won the Detroit Blues Challenge in the mid to late 2000s, but I ended up singing country music instead — which I have always loved, too!”

Within one week of its release, the album hit #1 on the iTunes Top 100 Blues Albums chart, #1 on the Amazon Best Sellers chart and #1 on the Amazon New Releases chart.

When speaking about the moment she learned her album had reached #1, Blazer shared, “My publicist, Colleen Lippert, texted me minutes before I was supposed to start my show at Bootleggers Inn on a Saturday night and I about passed out and burst it into tears on stage! Dream come true! I’m so grateful and happy to celebrate this moment with my best friends and some amazing fans. I sincerely thank each and every one of you who bought this. I could not have done this without you!”

Her new single, “Tears of Blue,” has already become a fan favorite and was awarded the title of “Best Blues Song” by World Songwriting Awards. 

The single, co-written with Grammy Nominated composer Armand Hutton and featuring the “Sax Diva” Suzanne Grzanna, is now impacting radio stations worldwide. Her sultry vocals are on display throughout this beautiful ballad, while the music video showcases her love for the Blues genre with a retro 1950s vibe.

There was a time
You were the center of my world
I thought we would make it to the end
But now you showed me your true worth
No longer can I try to pretend

I am crying tears of blue
And the whole time I knew that you knew
They couldn’t stop falling one by one
All because of you
But now I’ll make it through
While I’m still crying tears of blue

What do I do with this lonely heart of red
After I had given it to you
But the whole time you were playing with my head
Like I’m just some game you use

I am crying tears of blue
And the whole time I knew that you knew
They couldn’t stop falling one by one
All because of you
But now I’ll make it through
While I’m still crying tears of blue

Now I’m over you
I have been renewed
While I was crying tears of blue
