Jus Bus Blasting Away With Fresh Single

Justin Antigua St. John's - 

Antiguan Producer Justin "Jus Bus" Nation (aka "J. Nation") has hit a breakthrough with his debut single "Blasting Away".

Jus Bus, who was born in Texas but was raised and resides in Antigua & Barbuda, has had his share of hardships, but says he felt the time was right to begin releasing his songs now that he has crossed over to also songwriting and singing.
 
Jus Bus collaborated with many in the creation of "Blasting Away". The video for the song, an animation created, produced and directed entirely by Kenny Frankland, with extra 2D animation by Mark Paterson, tells the story of three friends -- a troll, a faun, and a goblin, who struggle to cope with life, and decide to "blast away" and find new worlds.
 



Speaking about Frankland's contribution, Jus Bus said, "It was all Kenny's idea. We gave him creative freedom, and he created it all. I asked for a sub-story for Jeff the crab, and asked that the flag be placed all over in discreet locations, and he did the rest."
 
Also featured are Drastic of Them Island Boyz and LogiQ Pryce, who wrote and sang their verses as the Faun and Goblin.
 
The song was produced by European producer Torsten Stenzel, who also lives in Antigua. Jus Bus gave credit to Stenzel for his support with the production of "Blasting Away", saying: "I composed a raw beat, but then Torsten took production to another level."
 
Jus Bus says that the release of “Blasting Away" is only the beginning, with much more material on the way.
 
"I've only been singing seriously for two years; seriously through a development phase. That song (Blasting Away) was recorded two years ago, and I had the video in my possession, finished for over nine months. But not everything must go out before its time, and it's a process. You can't go into battle untrained. So now that I have recorded over 17 songs and have two videos finished, with more in production, I feel it's time to release and start to tell my story. I also still produce music full time, despite this new venture," the artiste said.

"Blasting Away" has already received over 13,000 hits on YouTube, two weeks after its release.
 
When asked about the future of "Blasting Away", Jus Bus said: "I don't know; I can't see into the future, but I do pray it reaches the masses globally. It's a message in a bottle, so to speak. You never know where and who it may reach, but as long as it reaches, I'm fine."
 
Jus Bus also thanked Nigel Pigott for his support on the project. 

In an exclusive interview with Caribarena, Jus Bus also spoke about his musical views and inspirations.
 
When asked about his influences, Jus Bus replied: "Nina Simone is my all time favourite. Even before I figured out I had a voice myself, I loved her music and her story. I love old music, 60s, 70s and 80s, classic rock, soul, funk, reggae, anything from "back in di day". I'm very influenced by classic rock like Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Beatles, etc, and new bands like Coldplay."
 
Jus Bus also showed his more humble side when asked about fame.
 


"I don't want fame. I want to inspire, but I guess I will need to embrace it all one day somehow. I'm taking it one day at a time. I just want to be known for great music that touches people, and inspires them in a positive light. I also just want to make enough money to fuel my career more and to live normal, I ain't trying to ball out or live lavish and be up in everything. I'm a simple man, give me music, food and a roof over my head and I'm good," he said.
