Justine Blazer Overcomes Heartbreak With New Single “Tears Of Blue”
Blues/Americana singer/songwriter, producer and recording artist Justine Blazer recently released her newest single called “Tears of Blue” (co-written with Grammy-nominated composer Armand Hutton).
With jazzy lyrics like 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, “Tears of Blue” is already a favorite amongst listeners. The single was recently named “Best Blues Song” by the World Songwriting Awards and has over 6K streams on Spotify. You can watch the official music video for the single here:
“Tears of Blue,” which features “Sax Diva” Suzanne Grzanna, is the third single from Justine’s debut award-winning album, “Girl Singing the Blues,” following “Bad Love” and “Never Get Away.” The record reached #1 on the iTunes’ Top 100 Blues Albums chart, #1 on Amazon’s Best Selling Vocal Blues Albums chart and #1 on Amazon’s New Releases in Vocal Blues chart.
“Tears of Blue is a Motown-inspired, bluesy, mid-tempo ballad,” Justine explains. “It reflects crying over losing the love of your life – but in the end, it makes you stronger. Being from Detroit originally, I wanted a song that embodied the true heart and soul that city has. I grew up listening to Etta James, The Temptations, Sarah Vaughan, Martha Reeves, Aretha Franklin and more. I love that “Doo Wop” vibe and that sound truly resonates with my writing and performance.”
The album has been receiving rave reviews from fans, radio and press, and has been featured in publications like Billboard Magazine, Spinex Music, Broadway World, Nash in Tune, The Sounds Won’t Stop and more. She was also featured on the cover of Lazie Indie Music Magazine’s August edition.
