A selection of interviews and feature articles covering Sarah and her work.
As a musician, Sarah Jane Justice is classically trained in voice, piano and saxophone.
Early on in her creative career, she explored the world of musical theatre, taking part in a number of productions through-out her teenage years. At the age of eighteen, she discovered a new kind of audience, after being recruited to play tenor saxophone for established ska band Rubix Cuba. Sarah performed with Rubix Cuba for two years, playing support for bands like The Specials, and touring extensively around Australia and New Zealand. Eventually, she sat down at the piano and began to find her own voice as a singer-songwriter.
Under the name ‘The Lonely Kids’, Sarah slowly developed her sound, tending towards poetic lyrics that told distinctive stories. Bouncing between open mics, variety nights, and her own gigs, she wrote and performed three studio recordings, ‘The Lonely Kids’, ‘Infatuation (And Other Bad Habits’, and ‘The Trouble With Waking Up’. In 2016, she took the sound of The Lonely Kids a step further by writing and performing ‘Sigh-Fi’, a science fiction cabaret show that featured in the Adelaide Fringe Festival that year.
In between a plethora of other projects, she still finds the time to work on new musical endeavours whenever possible.
