"Lovely pure voice"

John Suchet

If there is one instrument that never quite loses its ability to impress, to provoke awe and admiration in everyone, it’s the human once.  Justine Balmer possesses an extraordinary one!  It is as fine as cut-glass crystal, as clear as blue skies.  She is a contemporary soprano, a rare one: this means that, with the voice alone, she can strip any song back to its very elements and expose its core strengths.  Listen to a familiar song sung by Justine, and it suddenly sounds new and fresh and full of wonder.

Justine has sung her way from London’s West End, to concert halls across the UK, America and the world.  Her debut album, ‘Simple Thing’ masterfully creates breath-taking twists on pop and classical hits, making it the ultimate classical album for the crossover market.  And, if Justine’s voice isn’t yet familiar, her face certainly will be, as she’s been a regular flagship guest presenter on shopping channels QVC and Ideal World for the past 11 years ….. in-between her singing of course!
