Justina Ward - Drifter

February 17, 2021

You could say it's pretty cold right now. Whether it's New York City or Europe, everyone is in the snow. So now is the perfect time to warm up! Let's go to Australia, to Adelaide, to meet Justina Ward.

"Drifter" is the third release of the young singer that you will find on her Spotify, which in my opinion deserves much more attention.

We are really delighted to be among the first to introduce you to this talented artist.

With a voice very comfortable in all tones, even in the highest notes, Justina delivers in "Drifter" a very worked and professional performance.

On the verses and on the bridge, the flow of words is fast and reminds me a little of Colbie Caillat's first albums. And I had the same feeling on the chorus: the same kind of catchy melody and the same sweetness. What a delight for the ears!

In "Drifter", Justina reveals her weaknesses, her fears, and her desire to move forward. After the bizarre year we have known, many of you will recognize yourselves. "Will I ever find the way back home, to the place where I belong?" she sings, with such sincerity.

The production is simple but efficient. No need to overdo it when the vocals and lyrics are enough to give you goosebumps. Also, we included the music video below, which is also simple but really well done, with beautiful color contrasts.

Justina Ward is definitely an artist to watch because she might surprise you, and grow much faster than you think.

Included in our "Indie Folk" playlist, and of course, you will now hear this amazing track on the Indie Music Radio.

Justina Ward's point of view

The song is a self-deprecating attack on not knowing oneself or being able to fall in love.

Recorded & produced in my home studio in Adelaide, the honky-tonk piano with an orchestral accompaniment creates a melancholic dreamlike atmosphere.
