Justine Johns was actually a stage name for Deborah Williams (it was the 80s and you needed a name with a bit of pizzaz; even I had a name–as a disc jockey–that had that uniquely 80s flair…nope, not sayin’). Deborah could have taken her experience in a number of different ways. She could have been encouraged or discouraged, clung to her 80s persona or given up on the music biz entirely. Instead, she went to work. She studied the craft in all of its many facets in all of the cities where talent congregates…. L.A., New York, Nashville, etc. She worked musical theater, did voice-overs for commercials and took character roles in assorted television shows. She sang at corporate conventions and weddings. She played the nightclubs of New York and the casinos of Las Vegas. In more recent times, she’s taught others, passing on the decades of knowledge she’s accumulated.
